Vegetables and ER- Breast Cancer

A European study appearing in the October 13, 2015 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that increased vegetable consumption was associated with a reduced risk for estrogen receptor negative (ER-) breast cancer. The study involved 335,054 females in the the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study (mean age 50.8+-9.8y). An increase in vegetable intake reduced breast cancer incidence overall, but was more apparent in the ER- group. Fruit intake was not association with a drop in breast cancer risk, regardless of hormone receptor status.
