Resumen

ROMIEU, Isabelle. Diet and breast cancer. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2011, vol.53, n.5, pp. 430-439. ISSN 0036-3634.

Both diet and nutrition have been studied in relationship with breast cancer risk, as the great variation among different countries in breast cancer incidence could possibly be explained through the inflammatory and immune response, as well as antioxidant intake, among others.To date, no clear association with diet beyond overweight and weight gain has been found, except for alcohol consumption. Nonetheless, the small number of studies done in middle to low income countries where variability of food intake is wider,is beginning to show interesting results.

Palabras llave : breast neoplasms; diet; risk; epidemiology; energy intake.
