Breast Cancer Risk Reduction [1811]

The lifetime risk of breast cancer is 12.5 percent, meaning that one in eight women will be diagnosed. Diet, age, and genetic predisposition are established risk factors, although the majority of breast cancers occur with unknown etiology. Imbalanced microbiota (dysbiosis) are associated with obesity, diabetes, and cancer. In this talk, we will review the proven lifestyle strategies that may reduce breast cancer risk, including nutrition, time-restricted eating, correction of dyscircadianism, and the emerging therapeutic role of microbial management.
