Some things you can do something about are taking birth control pills for 5 years or more, maintain a normal weight, eat a diet with plenty of vegetables, bear children, breastfeed, tubal ligation, hysterectomy, avoid taking fertility drugs such as clomid, (clomiphene) not doing hormone replacement therapy (estrogen only) for menopause.

Iodine/Iodide, Omega 6, Vitamin D3 are all good for this kind of cancer prevention.
