In brief: Good diet

Avoidance of a high fat diet and keeping your body weight close to normal may decrease the risk of bc - especially postmenopausal.
Exercise may help. Excessive alcohol intake has been linked to breast cancer risk and so has long-term use of estrogens.

In brief: Healthy Lifestyle

The best things you can do include avoiding estrogen-progesterone pills, smoking, and radiation exposure.
Exercise, a healthy diet, and avoidance of alcohol will further reduce the risk. A summary of a recent epidemiological study can be found below: http://www.Medpagetoday.Com/meetingcoverage/sabcs/30072.

In brief: Healthy weight

We are not able to control most risk factors for breast cancer, such as being female, aging, and family history.
We can control our weight, as obesity is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. In addition we can perform routine screening. Early detection leads to the best chance of a cure.
