While it was found that drinking just one glass of wine a day could increase your chances of post-menopausal breast cancer by 9 percent, and it was found that exercise reduces that risk by 10 percent, it's not like leading a healthy lifestyle will absolutely absolve you of the risk of cancer, since genetics play a large role in the disease.

The research also found that being overweight in adulthood can significantly increase the risk for developing breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in USA women with over 252,000 new cases estimated this year.

Kevin McConway, emeritus professor of Applied Statistics at the Open University, said: "Breast cancer is one of the commonest cancers, and according to Cancer Research UK (CRUK), of 100 UK women, about 12 or 13 will develop a breast cancer at some point in their lives".

Diet, nutrition, physical activity, and breast cancer.

While there are many factors that women cannot control, the good news from this report is that all women can take steps to lower their breast cancer risk, said Alice Bender from American Institute for Cancer Research.

However, Dr Anne McTiernan, lead report author and cancer expert at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, said the evidence regarding breast cancer was clear.

Until recently, women with breast cancer had to have disfiguring radical mastectomies.

A glass of wine a day is linked to increased breast cancer risk.

"Mice exposed to human triple-negative breast cancer cells experienced significantly reduced metastastic growth in their lungs after being treated with luteolin", said researcher Salman Hyder.

Women who drink alcohol every day raise their risk of a variety of cancers, including breast cancer.

Women concerned about their risk might want to substitute alcoholic drinks with low-calorie alternatives like water, sparkling water, tea, or coffee, McTiernan added. The findings, she said, are "showing there's an increase in risk and we have ideas about why it might be happening, but we're not sure".

Mothers who breastfeed are at lower risk for breast cancer. The report also left out genetics, he said.

A new report conducted by the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), in collaboration with the World Cancer Research Fund, examined several risk factors for breast cancer, including alcohol, diet, and weight. Yet McTiernan said she was surprised to find that just one drink a day on average was enough to raise a woman's risk.

The side effects of drinking alcohol are not unknown. Breast cancer is the top cancer in women in the world, according to the World Health Organization. One in 8 women in the United Kingdom can expect to have breast cancer at some point in their lifetime.

The U.S. National Cancer Institute has more on breast cancer risk. The greatest risks for developing breast cancer are being a woman and getting older'. During moderate exercise, you can carry on a conversation.

There was also evidence too that eating a non-starchy, plant-based diet is beneficial.

Further, moderate alcohol intake has heart benefits.
