A proper diet can reduce lifetime exposure to estrogen, which in turn can reduce the risk of a variety of disorders, including breast cancer, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, and uterine fibroids. Both proper nutrition and reduced estrogen exposure are important considerations for a person who has or has had an estrogen-influenced disorder. You can reduce your lifetime exposure to estrogen by making the following dietary changes:


Reduce your overall calorie intake. Reducing calorie consumption increases levels of a hormone called SHBG (Sex hormone-binding globulin) which is a glycoprotein that binds to sex hormones, specifically testosterone and estradiol. Other steroid hormones such as progesterone, cortisol, and other corticosteroids are bound by transcortin. These sex hormones circulate in the bloodstream, bound mostly to SHBG and to some degree bound to serum albumin. Only a small fraction is unbound, or "free," and thus biologically active and able to enter a cell and activate its receptor. The SHBG inhibits the function of these hormones. Thus bioavailability of sex hormones is influenced by the level of SHBG. SHBG keeps estrogen from stimulating the growth of healthy and cancerous cells in the breast and other areas of the body sensitive to estrogen levels. Scientists believe that calorie reduction has the same effect on other estrogen-influenced disorders. Calorie reduction is not recommended, however, during chemotherapy or radiation treatment.


Eat more whole grains, legumes, and berries, and more fiber-rich foods in general. Fiber increases the rate at which estrogen is excreted from the body. Also, some experts believe that simply adding fiber to the diet can recuse the risk of breast cancer by 75 to 80 percent. Fiber Supplements are available to help increase dietary fiber.

Fiber in the intestine keeps excreted estrogen byproducts from being reassembled by bacteria and reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Because the effects of estrogen are cumulative, the benefits of fiber are also cumulative - eating fiber-rich foods confers lifetime reduction of breast cancer risk. For this effect, it is necessary to eat at least 10 to 20 grams of fiber daily, which is difficult without eating high-fiber cereals. If high-fiber cereal is unpalatable, mix it with regular cereal. Use skim milk in your cereal rather than whole milk to reduce fat consumption. A recent study reported that a half-cup serving of wheat-bran cereal each morning lowered the blood levels of estrogen.

    Reduce your fat consumption but do not completely exclude healthy fats from your diet. Low-fat diets do not decrease estrogen production but do increase estrogen excretion through the urine. Low-fat diets also tend to include a lot of fruits and vegetables, many of which contain compounds that protect against cancer. A low-fat diet should have no more than 2 grams of fat per 100 calories and avoid saturated fats. Research has shown that polyunsaturated fats (corn and safflower oils are two examples) have a positive association with increased breast cancer risk.

    Note, however, that some kinds of fat are cancer protective. Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids from Fish Oils & Fish, and Flaxseed have been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Eating, two or three servings a week of salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel, herring, shellfish, or other cold water fish, or taking Fish Oil Capsules confers this benefit. In laboratory studies, cancer cells grown in the same test tube as healthy cells without essential fatty acids overtake the healthy cells. However, when essential fatty acids are added to the medium, healthy cells overtake the cancer cells. Olive Oil, Canola Oil and similar monosaturated fats also substantially reduce the risk of breast cancer, but include them in your diet in moderation. One tablespoon of freshly ground Flaxseed daily is recommended.

    Eat a variety of foods rich in antioxidants. By increasing the amount of complex carbohydrates (whole grains, fruits, and vegetables) in your diet, you will not only increase your intake of fiber but you will also increase your intake of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients known as antioxidants. Antioxidants are believed to help in the prevention of cancer. Any preventative effect antioxidants have arises from their ability to minimize cell damage from cancer-causing agents known as "free radicals." Antioxidants trap these "free radicals" and prevent them from causing the type of cell damage that makes people more susceptible to cancer.

    Examples of antioxidant vitamins that may play a protective role in preventing breast cancer include: Vitamin E (found in all oils, eggs, and nuts); Vitamin A and Beta Carotene (found in carrots and other green, orange, and yellow vegetables); Lycopene (found in tomatoes, pink grapefruit, and watermelon); Lutein and Zeaxanthin (found in kale, collard greens, spinach, red peppers, and romaine lettuce); and Calcium (found in milk products, tofu, and leafy green vegetables).

    If you are overweight, lose weight. Gradual weight loss after menopause reverses the effects of estrogen overexposure. Diets that are higher in plant products are usually lower in fat and result in leaner women who have less potential for the synthesizing of estrogen in fat tissue, and therefore may be at lower risk of breast cancer. Emphasizing a vegetarian-type diet may play a key role in reducing the risk of breast cancer. Additionally, vegetarian-style meals help increase several dietary constituents and micronutrients (vitamins and nutrients) that may play a protective role in the incidence of breast cancer. Remain physically active and lean throughout life.


    Increased exercise and activity. Although exercise is not part of a nutritional program, it is part of a life-style program. Four hours a week may sound impossible if you are a lifelong couch potato or if you are sore from surgery, too busy with radiation therapy, or exhausted from chemotherapy. It is hard to force yourself to exercise when you barely have enough energy to get out of bed or off the sofa.

    The solution may be to start slowly, perhaps with 15 minutes a day, and very gradually increase the time you spend exercising. It may take months for you to get up to four hours a week, but that is fine. Even during treatment, taking short, slow walks up and down the street or around the block can be very helpful. Then you can progress to gentle exercise, such as yoga or tai chi.

    Staying physically active is the key. Short spurts of activity here and there are good. But it is even better to sustain a physical activity over 15 minutes to an hour (or longer, if you can) and get your muscles, heart, and breathing all working together. Brisk walking is good exercise. You do not need to run a marathon. Any exercise you do regularly will make you feel better today and is also good for your long-term health.

    Take time to meditate or perform other stress-reduction exercises every day. Stress contributes to many disorders and diseases.


    Use acidophilus supplements. While the liver breaks down estrogen before sending it to the digestive tract for elimination, bacteria in the intestines can turn these breakdown products back into estrogen. The hormone can then be re-absorbed through the intestinal wall. Taking Lactobacillus acidophilus supplements daily can provide your body with the beneficial microbes that compete with the estrogen-forming bacteria.

    Phytoestrogens. There is a great deal of conflicting information concerning the association between phytoestrogens and breast cancer. Phytoestrogen is a plant-derived estrogen and can be found in food products like soy (tofu, tempeh, soybeans, soy milk, and miso). It is believed that the phytoestrogens in soy act as "anti-estrogens" -that is, they compete with and counteract the body's natural estrogen, thereby helping to reduce the risk of breast cancer.

    While some researchers believe that the phytoestrogens in soy are beneficial for women, others are afraid that they can be dangerous for women with breast cancer. At this time, studies are inconclusive as to the long-term physiologic effects of the phytoestrogens contained in soy. Until more information is available, it is a good idea not to overdo your consumption of soy foods if you are at risk for, or have been diagnosed as having, breast cancer. Two or three servings a week is plenty.

    Many other phytochemicals are under investigation for potential protective effects as well-"allicin" in garlic; "ellagic acid" in grapes; "sulforaphane" in broccoli; and "indoles" and "dithiothides" in cruciferous Brassica vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale, mustard, bok choy, and collard greens). Do not overdo the Brassica vegetables. It is possible for Brassicas to cause suppressed thyroid function and even goiter if you eat a lot of them on a daily basis. Three to four servings a week is a good general range.

    Avoid products containing estrogen, progesterone and pesticides. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is not recommended (contraindicated) for women at risk for breast cancer or other estrogen-sensitive disorders. This is because taking a combination of estrogen and progesterone for a few years or longer is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer, according to a number of studies. Only a handful of small studies look at the use of HRT in women with a personal history of breast cancer who are suffering from post-menopausal symptoms. No solid results are available to guide a careful decision on this topic. But most experts agree that the risks and unknown long-term effects of taking HRT probably outweigh any benefits.

    The studies mentioned above all looked at hormones in pill form. Little is known about the relative safety of vaginal creams, rings (such as Estring), gels, "natural" hormones, and herbal hormones. Your health care provider may prescribe vaginal hormones to help with vaginal dryness and discomfort. Hormone preparations used in the vaginal mostly stay in the vagina. But a little bit of these hormones can be absorbed into your bloodstream and get to your breasts. If you decide to use them with your health care provider's advice, try to use the lowest dose possible.

    Some women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer choose to eat organic foods to limit their exposure to any excess pesticides, antibiotics, or hormones.

    Alcoholic beverages. Consuming even moderate amounts of alcohol raises the risk of breast cancer because it raises estrogen levels. The link between alcohol and breast cancer may even be stronger than other dietary links. Among women who consume alcohol regularly, a clear way to reduce the risk of breast cancer is to reduce alcohol consumption.


    Green Tea consumption has been correlated with a decreased recurrence of Stages I and II of breast cancer.

    Green Tea is simply the dried leaves of the tea plant. Black tea are dried tea plant leaves that have been through a fermentation process. The key ingredients of green tea are molecules called catechins and have a variety of actions including vasorelaxation (arteries relaxing) which has aided cardiovascular activity. Catechins of green tea are selectively bactericidal. They do not affect lactic acid bacteria but will reduce the proliferation of other bacteria types particularly those that use alpha-amylase activity in their growth and cell division. Green tea also contains antioxidants and may help to lower cholesterol. Of greatest interest to the research community green tea apparently has a protective effect against a range of cancers, including the reduction in the frequency of smoke-induced mutations and is particularly useful in protection from stomach and colon cancer. Some studies have shown green tea may influence blood concentrations of hormones linked to at least one form of genetic hair loss known as androgenic alopecia. In one study published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer in 1998, Japanese researchers found that drinking green tea could increase levels of the sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) in women. Since this biochemical binds testosterone, the more SHBG present in a woman's body, at least theoretically, the less testosterone will be in her bloodstream. And that, say some experts, may block the chain of hormonal activity that initiates some forms of hair loss. Since green tea is certainly a good source of healthful antioxidants and may have some anti-cancer properties, so it certainly would not hurt a woman to include it in her diet. One cup of green tea roughly equals 100 mg of tea catechins. Typically research investigations have involved individuals drinking 3 cups of green tea (300 mg catechins) each day. Alternatively, capsules of green tea are widely available. Most catechins when ingested in green tea are passed through the gut and excreted intact. Very little is actually absorbed into the blood stream. Research indicates that ingestion of 3 grams of green tea solids will yield plasma levels of catechins in the nanograms per milliliter of plasma range which is very low. The researchers also noted that increasing green tea intake to 4.5 grams did not significantly increase the amount absorbed into the blood plasma so there seems to be an upper limit to the amount of catechins that can be absorbed and carried in the blood stream. Taking larger amounts of green tea will not necessarily equate to an increased level of blood plasma catechins or improved treatment effect! Green tea is well tolerated by most individuals with no significant side effects reported.

    Nutritional counseling can help incorporate these guidelines into an individual meal plan. It can provide specific guidelines as to calories, grams of fat, and grams of fiber, as well as vitamin/mineral regimens that can be designed to fit into any lifestyle. Overweight women-especially those with coexisting risk factors for breast cancer-should try to lose weight, or at least avoid gaining weight.



    Achieve and maintain a healthy weight throughout life.

    • Be as lean as possible throughout life without being underweight.
    • Avoid excess weight gain at all ages. For those who are overweight or obese, losing even a small amount of weight has health benefits and is a good place to start.
    • Get regular physical activity and limit intake of high-calorie foods and drinks as keys to help maintain a healthy weight.

    Be physically active.

    • Adults: Get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity each week (or a combination of these), preferably spread throughout the week.
    • Children & Teens: Get at least 1 hour of moderate or vigorous intensity activity each day, with vigorous activity on at least 3 days each week.
    • Limit sedentary behavior such as sitting, lying down, watching TV, and other forms of screen-based entertainment.
    • Doing some physical activity above usual activities, no matter what one's level of activity, can have many health benefits.

    Eat a healthy diet, with an emphasis on plant foods.

    • Choose foods and drinks in amounts that help you get to and maintain a healthy weight.
    • Limit how much processed meat and red meat you eat.
    • Eat at least 2.5 cups of vegetables and fruits each day.
    • Choose whole grains instead of refined grain products.

    If you drink alcohol, limit your intake.

    • Drink no more than 1 drink per day for women or 2 per day for men.


    Public, private, and community organizations should work together at national, state, and local levels to apply policy and environmental changes that:

    • Increase access to affordable, healthy foods in communities, places of work, and schools, and decrease access to and marketing of foods and drinks of low nutritional value, particularly to youth.

    • Provide safe, enjoyable, and accessible environments for physical activity in schools and workplaces, and for transportation and recreation.

    About 2 out of 3 Americans are overweight or obese. Many Americans are also less physically active than they should be. Obesity increases the risk of many types of cancer. It also increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other health outcomes, such as dying at an early age.

    While it is not clear exactly how excess body fat, consuming too many calories, and lack of physical activity raise cancer risk, there is no question that they are linked to an increased risk of many types of cancer and that they are a serious and growing health problem.

    • Be as lean as possible throughout life without being underweight.
    • Avoid excess weight gain at all ages. For those who are overweight or obese, losing even a small amount of weight has health benefits and is a good place to start.
    • Get regular physical activity and limit intake of high-calorie foods and drinks as keys to help maintain a healthy weight.

    Body Weight & Cancer Risk

    In the United States, excess body weight is thought to contribute to as many as 1 out of 5 of all cancer-related deaths. Being overweight or obese is clearly linked with an increased risk of several types of cancer:
    • Breast (among women who have gone through menopause)
    • Colon and rectum
    • Endometrium (lining of the uterus)
    • Esophagus
    • Kidney
    • Pancreas

    Being overweight or obese also likely raises the risk of other cancers:
    • Gallbladder
    • Liver
    • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
    • Multiple myeloma
    • Cervix
    • Ovary
    • Aggressive forms of prostate cancer

    In addition, having too much belly fat is linked with an increased risk of colorectal cancer, and is probably linked to a higher risk of cancers of the pancreas, endometrium (lining of the uterus), and breast cancer (in women past menopause).

    Some studies have shown a link between weight loss and a lower risk of breast cancer after menopause. The risk of some other cancers may also be lowered by weight loss. While there is still much to be learned about this area, people who are overweight or obese are encouraged to lose weight.

    Getting To & Maintaining A Healthy Weight

    A healthy weight depends on a person's height, so recommendations for a healthy weight are often expressed in terms of body mass index (BMI). BMI is a number that is calculated using your weight and height. In general, the higher the number, the more body fat a person has (although there are exceptions).

    BMI is often used as a screening tool to help decide if your weight might be putting you at risk for health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. People should strive to maintain a healthy weight, as seen in the table below.

    For most adults, experts consider a BMI within the range of 18.5 to 24.9 to be healthy, a BMI between 25 and 29.9 to be overweight, and a BMI of 30 and over to be obese.

    BMI Chart

    The way to achieve a healthy body weight is to balance energy intake (what you eat and drink) with energy use (physical activity). Excess body fat can be reduced by lowering the number of calories you consume and increasing your physical activity.

    You can lower the number of calories that you take in by eating smaller amounts of food (lowering portion sizes), limiting between-meal snacks, and limiting foods and drinks that are high in calories, fat, and/or added sugars, and that provide few nutrients. Fried foods, cookies, cakes, candy, ice cream, and regular soft drinks should be replaced with vegetables and fruits, whole grains, beans, and lower calorie beverages.

    • Adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity activity each week (or a combination of these), preferably spread throughout the week.
    • Children and teens should get at least 1 hour of moderate or vigorous intensity activity each day, with vigorous activity on at least 3 days each week.
    • Limit sedentary behavior such as sitting, lying down, watching TV, and other forms of screen-based entertainment.
    • Doing some physical activity above usual activities, no matter what one's level of activity, can have many health benefits.

    Benefits of Physical Activity

    Physical activity may reduce the risk of several types of cancer:
    • Breast
    • Colon
    • Endometrium (lining of the uterus)
    • Prostate (advanced cancers)

    The risk of other cancers may be lowered as well, although the evidence is limited.

    A physically active lifestyle may also lower a person's risk of other health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and osteoporosis (bone thinning).

    Being active may also help to prevent weight gain and obesity, which may in turn reduce the risk of developing cancers that have been linked to excess body weight.

    Types of Activity

    Usual activities are those that are done on a regular basis as part of one's daily routine. These activities include those done at work (such as walking from the parking garage to the office), at home (such as climbing a flight of stairs), and those that are part of daily living (such as dressing and bathing). Usual activities are typically brief and of low intensity.

    Intentional activities are those that are done in addition to these usual activities. These activities are often planned and done at leisure, as regularly scheduled physical activity or fitness sessions (exercise), such as a bike ride or a run. Other intentional activities may involve adding more purposeful physical activity into the day and making lifestyle choices to add to or replace other routine activities, such as walking to use public transportation or commuting by bicycle instead of driving.

    Usual and intentional activities can also be grouped by intensity:
    • Light intensity activities include activities such as housework, shopping, or gardening.
    • Moderate intensity activities are those that require effort equal to a brisk walk.
    • Vigorous intensity activities generally use large muscle groups and result in a faster heart rate, deeper and faster breathing, and sweating.

    Examples of moderate and vigorous intensity physical activities





    Walking, dancing, leisurely bicycling, ice and roller skating, horseback riding, canoeing, yoga

    Jogging or running, fast bicycling, circuit weight training, aerobic dance, martial arts, jumping rope, swimming


    Volleyball, golfing, softball, baseball, badminton, doubles tennis, downhill skiing

    Soccer, field or ice hockey, lacrosse, singles tennis, racquetball, basketball, cross-country skiing


    Mowing the lawn, general yard and garden maintenance

    Digging, carrying and hauling, masonry, carpentry


    Walking and lifting as part of the job (custodial work, farming, auto or machine repair)

    Heavy manual labor (forestry, construction, fire fighting)

    Recommended Amount of Activity

    Adults should get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate intensity activity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous intensity activity, or an equal combination, in addition to normal activities of daily living.

    When combining different types of activity, 1 minute of vigorous activity can take the place of 2 minutes of moderate activity. For example, 150 minutes of moderate activity, 75 minutes of vigorous activity, and a combination of 100 minutes of moderate activity plus 25 minutes of vigorous activity all count as the same amount.

    This level of activity has been shown to have clear health benefits, including lowering the risk of dying at an early age and lowering the chance of getting or dying from certain types of cancer. Higher amounts of physical activity may be even better for lowering cancer risk.

    It is not clear if daily activity provides the most benefit if done all at once or in smaller blocks of time throughout the day, but it is reasonable to get your activity in eparate sessions of at least 20 to 30 minutes each.

    For people who are not active or just starting a physical activity program, activity levels below the recommended levels can still help your health, especially your heart. The amount and intensity of activity can then be increased slowly over time. Most children and young adults can safely do moderate and/or vigorous activities without checking with their health care providers. But men older than 40 years, women older than 50 years, and people with chronic illnesses or risk factors for heart disease should check with their health care providers before starting a vigorous activity program.

    Children and teens should be encouraged to be active at moderate to vigorous intensities for at least an hour a day, every day. Activities should be age appropriate, enjoyable, and varied, including sports and fitness activities in school, at home, and in the community. To help reach activity goals, daily physical education programs and activity breaks should be provided for children at school, and "screen time" (TV viewing, playing video games, or social networking on the computer and similar activities) should be limited at home.

    Limiting Time Spent Sitting

    There is growing evidence that the amount of time spent sitting is important, regardless of your activity level. Sitting time raises the risks of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer, as well as of dying at a younger age.

    Lifestyle changes and advances in technology have led to people being less active and spending more time sitting each day. This is true both in the workplace and at home, due to increased TV, computer, and other screen time. Limiting the amount of time spent sitting, as suggested in the table below, may help maintain a healthy body weight and reduce the risk of certain cancers.

    Tips to reduce sitting time

  • Limit time spent watching TV and using other forms of screen-based entertainment.

  • Use a stationary bicycle or treadmill when you do watch TV.

  • Use stairs rather than an elevator.

  • If you can, walk or bike to your destination.

  • Exercise at lunch with your coworkers, family, or friends.

  • Take an exercise break at work to stretch or take a quick walk.

  • Walk to visit coworkers instead of phoning or sending an e-mail.

  • Go dancing with your spouse or friends.

  • Plan active vacations rather than only driving trips.

  • Wear a pedometer every day and increase your number of daily steps.

  • Join a sports team.

  • Eat A Healthy Diet, With An Emphasis On Plant Foods

    Choose foods and drinks in amounts that help you get to and maintain a healthy weight.
    • Read food labels to become more aware of portion sizes and calories. Be aware that "low-fat" or "non-fat" does not necessarily mean "low-calorie."
    • Eat smaller portions when eating high-calorie foods.
    • Choose vegetables, whole fruit, and other low-calorie foods instead of calorie-dense foods such as French fries, potato and other chips, ice cream, donuts, and other sweets.
    • Limit your intake of sugar-sweetened beverages such as soft drinks, sports drinks, and fruit-flavored drinks.
    • When you eat away from home, be especially mindful to choose food low in calories, fat, and added sugar, and avoid eating large portion sizes.

    Limit how much processed meat and red meat you eat.
    • Limit your intake of processed meats such as bacon, sausage, lunch meats, and hot dogs.
    • Choose fish, poultry, or beans instead of red meat (beef, pork, and lamb).
    • If you eat red meat, choose lean cuts and eat smaller portions.
    • Prepare meat, poultry, and fish by baking, broiling, or poaching rather than by frying or charbroiling.

    Eat at least 2.5 cups of vegetables and fruits each day.
    • Include vegetables and fruits at every meal and for snacks.
    • Eat a variety of vegetables and fruits each day.
    • Emphasize whole fruits and vegetables; choose 100% juice if you drink vegetable or fruit juices.
    • Limit your use of creamy sauces, dressings, and dips with fruits and vegetables.

    Choose whole grains instead of refined grain products.
    • Choose whole-grain breads, pasta, and cereals (such as barley and oats) instead of breads, cereals, and pasta made from refined grains, and brown rice instead of white rice.
    • Limit your intake of refined carbohydrate foods, including pastries, candy, sugar-sweetened breakfast cereals, and other high-sugar foods.

    Studies showing that higher vegetable and fruit intake reduces cancer risk have led researchers to try to figure out which specific nutrients from these foods are responsible. But many studies have not found that supplements containing certain nutrients (like vitamins) reduce cancer risk, and some have even suggested they may cause harm. This is complicated because researchers must try to choose how best to give the supplement, including the exact dose, what group of people to give it to, and how long to give it for, which is not always known.

    Studies of nutritional supplements to reduce cancer risk have not all been disappointing, but for the most part, research does not support their use in lowering cancer risk.

    Foods and nutrients probably each have small effects on health that add up when consumed together, and they may interact in complex ways that are not well understood. The best advice at this time is to eat whole foods as part of an overall healthy diet as outlined in this guideline, with special emphasis on controlling calorie intake to help get to and maintain a healthy weight.

    If you drink alcohol, limit your intake

    People who drink alcohol should limit their intake to no more than 2 drinks per day for men and 1 drink per day for women. The recommended limit is lower for women because of their smaller body size and slower breakdown of alcohol.

    A drink of alcohol is defined as 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits (hard liquor). In terms of cancer risk, it is the amount of alcohol consumed that is important, not the type of alcoholic drink.

    These daily limits do not mean you can drink larger amounts on fewer days of the week, since this can lead to health, social, and other problems.

    Alcohol is a known cause of cancers of the:
    • Mouth
    • Throat (pharynx)
    • Voice box (larynx)
    • Esophagus
    • Liver
    • Colon & rectum
    • Breast

    Alcohol may also increase the risk of cancer of the pancreas.

    Alcohol also interacts with tobacco use to increase the risk of cancers of the mouth, larynx, and esophagus many times more than the effect of either drinking or smoking alone.

    The recommendation for limiting alcohol is complicated because low to moderate alcohol intake has been linked with a lower risk of heart disease. Despite the effects on the heart, the American Heart Association states that there is no compelling reason for adults who do not drink alcohol to start drinking in order to reduce their risk of heart disease, because the risk can be lowered by other means (such as avoiding smoking, eating a healthy diet, staying at a healthy weight, and staying physically active).

    Some groups of people should not drink alcohol at all. These include:
    • Children and teens
    • People of any age who cannot limit their drinking or who have a family history of alcoholism
    • Women who are or may become pregnant
    • People who plan to drive or operate machinery
    • People who take part in other activities that require attention, skill, or coordination
    • People taking prescription or over-the-counter medicines that interact with alcohol

    Recommendations For Community Action

    Although many Americans would like to adopt a healthy lifestyle, many encounter barriers that make it hard to do so. These guidelines therefore stress the importance of public, private, and community organizations working together at national, state, and local levels to apply policy and environmental changes that:
    • Increase access to affordable, healthy foods in communities, places of work, and schools, and decrease access to and marketing of foods and drinks of low nutritional value, particularly to youth.
    • Provide safe, enjoyable, and accessible environments for physical activity in schools and workplaces, and for transportation and recreation in communities.


    Many people are also interested in other aspects of food intake and their potential impact on cancer risk.

    Food additives and contaminants Many substances are added to foods to prolong shelf and storage life and to enhance color, flavor, and texture. The possible role of food additives in cancer risk is an area of great public interest.

    New food additives must be cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before being allowed into the food supply, and thorough testing is done in lab animals to determine any effects on cancer as part of this process. Additives are usually present in very small quantities in food, and some are nutrients that may have beneficial effects (for example, vitamins C and E are sometimes added to food products as a preservative).

    Other compounds find their way into the food supply through agricultural use, animal farming, or food processing, even if their use is not directly intended for human consumption. Examples include growth hormones or antibiotics used in animal farming, small amounts of pesticides and herbicides in plant-based foods, and compounds such as bisphenol A (BPA) or phthalates that enter food from packaging. Some of these compounds are not known to directly cause cancer, but they may influence cancer risk in other ways - for example, by acting as hormone-like substances in the body.

    Unintended contamination of food may also result in exposure to chemicals that are a cause of concern and may be related to cancer risk. Examples include heavy metals such as cadmium or mercury. These metals may enter the food supply if they build up the food chain, such as from fish, or they may enter through contamination or their natural presence in soil or water.

    For many other compounds for which the effects on cancer risk are not clear, there may be other good reasons to limit exposure. But at the levels that these are found in the food supply, lowering cancer risk is unlikely to be a major reason to justify this.

    Food Processing

    Food processing may also alter foods in ways that might affect cancer risk. An example is the refining of grains, which greatly lowers the amount of fiber and other compounds that may reduce cancer risk.

    The processing of meat, by adding preservatives such as salt or sodium nitrite to prevent the growth of germs, or smoking the meat to preserve or enhance color and flavor, may add compounds that might increase the potential of these foods to cause cancer. Studies have linked eating large amounts of processed meats with an increased risk of colorectal cancer. This may be due to nitrites, which are added to many lunch meats, hams, hot dogs, and other processed meats.

    Some food processing, such as freezing and canning vegetables and fruits, can preserve vitamins and other components that may decrease cancer risk. Cooking or heat-treating (such as when canning) vegetables breaks down the plant cell walls and may allow the helpful compounds in these foods to be more easily digested. But some of these methods may also lower the content of some heat-sensitive vitamins, such as vitamin C and some B vitamins.

    Irradiated foods Irradiation of food products is one way to limit the risk of germ contamination and food poisoning. In the United States, some foods, such as spices, are routinely irradiated. Irradiated meats and other foods are also widely available. Because radiation is known to cause cancer, there has been concern that food irradiation may present a cancer risk. However, radiation does not remain in foods that have been irradiated.

    Organic Foods

    Concern about the possible effects of food additives on health, including cancer, is one reason that many people are now interested in organic foods. Organic foods are often promoted as an alternative to foods grown with conventional methods that use chemical pesticides and herbicides, hormones, or antibiotics. These compounds cannot be used for foods labeled as "organic." Organic foods, as defined by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), also exclude genetically modified foods or foods that have been irradiated.

    Whether organic foods carry a lower risk of cancer because they are less likely to be contaminated by compounds that might cause cancer is largely unknown.

    Several studies have looked at the nutrient content of organic versus conventionally grown fruits or vegetables, and while some studies suggest a higher nutrient content, others suggest no difference. It is not known if the nutritional differences that have been reported would result in health benefits such as a reduced cancer risk.

    Vegetables, fruits, and whole grains should form the central part of a person's diet, regardless of whether they are grown conventionally or organically.

    Diet & Activity Factors That Affect Risks For Certain Cancers

  • BLADDER CANCER: The major risk factors for bladder cancer are smoking and exposure to certain industrial chemicals. Recent studies have suggested that eating large amounts of chargrilled meats may also raise bladder cancer risk. Some research suggests that drinking more fluids and eating more vegetables may lower the risk of bladder cancer.

  • BREAST CANCER: The risk of breast cancer in women is increased by several factors that cannot be easily changed:
    • Having your first period before age 12.
    • Not having children or having your first child after age 30.
    • Late age at menopause.
    • Family history of breast cancer.
    • Other well-known risk factors include the use of menopausal hormone therapy and exposure of the breasts to radiation, especially at a young age.

    Both increased body weight and weight gain as an adult are linked with a higher risk of breast cancer after menopause. Alcohol also increases risk of breast cancer. Even low levels of alcohol intake have been linked with an increase in risk. Many studies have shown that moderate to vigorous physical activity is linked with lower breast cancer risk. A diet that is rich in vegetables, fruit, poultry, fish, and low-fat dairy products has also been linked with a lower risk of breast cancer in some studies. But it is not clear if specific vegetables, fruits, or other foods can lower risk. Most studies have not found that lowering fat intake has much of an effect on breast cancer risk. At this time, the best advice about diet and activity to possibly reduce the risk of breast cancer is to:
    • Get regular, intentional physical activity.
    • Reduce lifetime weight gain by limiting your calories and getting regular physical activity.
    • Avoid or limit your alcohol intake.

  • COLORECTAL CANCER: The risk of colorectal cancer is higher for those with relatives who have had colorectal cancer or polyps. Risk may also be increased by long-term tobacco use and excessive alcohol use. Several studies have found a higher risk of colorectal cancer with increased alcohol intake, especially among men. Most studies have found that being overweight or obese increases the risk of colorectal cancer in both men and women, but the link seems to be stronger in men. Having more belly fat (that is, a larger waistline) has also been linked to colorectal cancer. Overall, diets that are high in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains (and low in red and processed meats) have been linked with lower colorectal cancer risk, although it is not exactly clear which factors are important. Many studies have found a link between red meat or processed meat intake and colorectal cancer risk.

    Studies show a lower risk of colorectal cancer and polyps with increasing levels of activity. Moderate activity on a regular basis lowers the risk, but vigorous activity may have an even greater benefit. In recent years, some large studies have suggested that fiber intake, especially from whole grains, may lower colorectal cancer risk. Research in this area is still under way. Several studies have found that calcium, vitamin D, or a combination of the two may help protect against colorectal cancer. But because of the possible increased risk of prostate cancer in men with high calcium intake, the ACS does not recommend increasing calcium intake specifically to try to lower cancer risk. At this time, the best advice about diet and activity to possibly reduce the risk of colorectal cancer is to:
    • Increase the intensity and amount of physical activity.
    • Limit intake of red and processed meats.
    • Get the recommended levels of calcium and vitamin D.
    • Eat more vegetables and fruits.
    • Avoid obesity and weight gain around the midsection.
    • Avoid excess alcohol.
    • It is also very important to follow the ACS guidelines for regular colorectal screening because finding and removing polyps in the colon can help prevent colorectal cancer.

  • ENDOMETRIAL (UTERINE) CANCER: There is strong evidence of a link between being overweight or obese and having a higher risk of endometrial cancer (cancer of the lining of the uterus). Some research has also found a link between having more belly fat (that is, a larger waistline) and endometrial cancer. The link to weight is thought to result from the increase in estrogen levels that happens when women are overweight.

  • Studies have also found a lower endometrial cancer risk with high physical activity levels, although in some studies this has been limited to women who are overweight or who have not yet gone through menopause. Spending more time sitting (regardless of overall activity level) has also been linked with a higher risk. Vegetable and fiber intake may lower risk, although some studies have not found this. The evidence for red meat, saturated fat, animal fat, and alcohol raising risk is also conflicting among different studies. At this time, the best advice about diet and activity to possibly lower the risk of endometrial cancer is to get to and stay at a healthy weight and to get regular physical activity.

  • KIDNEY CANCER: The causes of kidney cancer are not clear, but the best-known risk factors that can be changed are obesity and tobacco smoking. Studies looking for links between specific parts of the diet and kidney cancer have not shown clear results. A small number of studies have found a possible link between physical activity and lowered risk of kidney cancer. The best advice to possibly lower risk for kidney cancer is to stay at a healthy weight and avoid tobacco use.

  • LUNG CANCER: More than 85 percent of lung cancers result from tobacco smoking, but other factors, such as radon exposure, are also linked to lung cancer. Many studies have shown that the risk of lung cancer is lower among both smokers and non-smokers who eat at least 5 servings of vegetables and fruits a day. Although healthful eating may reduce the risk of lung cancer, the risks from tobacco remain high. Using high-dose beta-carotene and/or vitamin A supplements has been shown to increase (not decrease) lung cancer risk among smokers. The best advice to reduce the risk of lung cancer is to avoid tobacco use and secondhand smoke and to avoid radon exposure.

  • MOUTH, THROAT, & ESOPHAGUS CANCERS: Tobacco (including cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and snuff), alcohol, and especially the combination of the two, increase the risk for cancers of the mouth, larynx (voice box), pharynx (throat), and esophagus. Obesity raises the risk for cancer in the lower esophagus and at the junction of the esophagus and stomach (likely due to increased acid reflux). Very hot beverages and foods may also increase the risk of mouth and esophagus cancers, likely as a result of the damage heat can cause. A diet high in vegetables and fruits may reduce the risk of mouth and esophagus cancers.

    The best advice to possibly reduce the risk of these cancers is to:
    • Avoid all forms of tobacco.
    • Restrict alcohol intake.
    • Avoid obesity.
    • Eat at least 2.5 cups of vegetables and fruits each day.

  • OVARIAN CANCER: The causes of ovarian cancer are not well understood. Family history is a risk factor, but only about 10 percent of ovarian cancers are inherited. There are no clearly proven nutritional risk factors for ovarian cancer. Some studies have found that obesity may increase the risk for ovarian cancer, as may a diet high in fat (especially saturated fat). The role of physical activity in ovarian cancer risk is unclear. Studies of vegetables, fruits, meat, dairy products, and alcohol have not found clear links. Some studies have found possible role for eating soy foods and drinking tea (especially green tea) in lowering ovarian cancer risk, but not all studies have found this. At this time, it is not clear how nutrition and physical activity might be related to ovarian cancer risk, so no strong recommendations can be made.

  • PANCREATIC CANCER: Tobacco smoking, type 2 diabetes, and impaired glucose tolerance (sometimes called "pre-diabetes," or "borderline diabetes" all increase the risk for pancreatic cancer. Several studies have found a link between being overweight or obese and having a higher risk of pancreatic cancer. Some research has also found a link between having more belly fat (that is, a larger waistline) and pancreatic cancer, especially in women. Some studies have suggested that pancreatic cancer risk may be reduced with higher levels of physical activity, especially if it is part of a person's job. On the other hand, diets high in red and processed meats and low in fruits and vegetables have been linked with increased risk in some studies. More research is needed to confirm these findings. Few studies have looked at possible links between specific foods or alcohol intake and risk of pancreatic cancer. The best advice to possibly lower the risk of pancreatic cancer is to avoid tobacco use and stay at a healthy weight. Being physically active and following the other ACS recommendations related to a healthy diet may also be helpful.

  • PROSTATE CANCER: Prostate cancer is related to age, family history, and male sex hormones, but just how diet and activity factors might affect risk is not clear. In recent years, researchers have learned it may be important to distinguish between prostate cancers that are aggressive (likely to grow and spread quickly) and those that are less likely to cause problems. For example, some studies have found that men who are overweight may have a lower risk of prostate cancer overall, but a higher risk of prostate cancers that are likely to be fatal. Being overweight is also linked with a worse outlook in men who have been diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer. Studies have found that men who get regular physical activity have a slightly lower risk of prostate cancer. Vigorous activity may have a greater effect, especially on the risk of advanced prostate cancer. Several studies suggest that diets high in certain vegetables (including tomatoes, cruciferous vegetables, soy, beans, and other legumes) or fish may be linked with a lower risk of prostate cancer, especially more advanced cancers. Examples of cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage. Studies so far have not found a benefit from taking supplements containing antioxidant nutrients, such as vitamin E or selenium. In fact, a recent large study found that vitamin E supplements might actually raise prostate cancer risk slightly. Several studies have found that diets high in calcium may raise prostate cancer risk. Dairy foods may also increase risk. For now, the best advice about diet and activity to possibly reduce the risk of prostate cancer is to:
    • Eat at least 2.5 cups of a wide variety of vegetables and fruits each day.
    • Be physically active.
    • Stay at a healthy weight.
    • It may also be sensible to limit calcium supplements and to not get too much calcium in the diet. But because calcium and dairy intake may lower the risk of colorectal cancer, the ACS does not have specific recommendations on calcium and dairy food intake to try to lower cancer risk.

  • STOMACH CANCER: The number of stomach cancer cases in most parts of the world is falling. While stomach cancer is fairly rare in the United States, the rate of cancers in the first part of the stomach (the cardia) has risen in recent years. This may be due at least in part to increases in gastric reflux, which has been linked to obesity. Many studies have found that a high intake of fresh fruits and vegetables is linked with a lower risk of stomach cancer, while a high intake of salt, salt-preserved foods, and possibly processed meat, is linked with a higher risk. Not many studies have looked at the possible effects of body size or obesity on stomach cancer, but most have found an increased risk with higher body weight. There are also few studies that have looked at the effects of physical activity on stomach cancer, but it seems to be linked with a lower risk. At this time, the best advice to possibly reduce the risk of stomach cancer is to:
    • Eat at least 2.5 cups of vegetables and fruits daily.
    • Reduce intake of processed meat, salt, and foods preserved with salt.
    • Be physically active.
    • Stay at a healthy weight.

    Amazon: Estrobalance Supplement Products
    Support for healthy estrogen metabolism. It promotes natural support for estrogen balance and efficient fat metabolism. Promotes breast wellness and healthy cell development. Many women today have high estrogen levels due to stress, diet and environmental exposure to estrogen-like materials. This estrogen dominance can increase your need for hormone balance. DIM, or diindolylmethane, can support healthy estrogen metabolism and hormonal balance, but only if it is absorbed properly. This safe, natural formula contains DIM from Indolplex, specially processed for easy bioavailability by the body.
    Amazon: DIM-Plus Supplement Products
    DIM-plus contains diindolylmethane, a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale. Unlike other plant nutrients such as soy isoflavones, diindolylmethane has unique hormonal benefits. It supports the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism. Scientific research shows diindolylmethane increases the level of "good" estrogens (2-hydroxyestrogen) while reducing the level of "bad" estrogens (16-hydroxyestrogen). When taken as part of a healthy diet, diindolylmethane can help to: Promote healthy estrogen metabolism. Relieve PMS symptoms. Promote fat loss. Support healthy breast, cervical, uterine and prostate tissues. The key is to regularly supplement the diet with diindolylmethane in its most bioavailable, "enhanced absorption" delivery form. (Women): Take two capsules daily with food. (Men): Take two capsules twice daily with food. For Intensive Use (Women & Men): Take up to double the recommended dose.
