What is the relationship between obesity and breast cancer?

Being overweight or obese after menopause increases the risk of breast cancer. Before menopause, your ovaries produce most of the estrogen, and adipose tissue produces very little estrogen. After menopause (when the ovaries stop producing estrogen), estrogen comes to most women from adipose tissue. Having excess adipose tissue after menopause increases the chance of developing breast cancer by increasing the estrogen level. High insulin levels are linked to some types of cancer, including breast cancer. However, the link between breast cancer and weight is complicated. For example; While the risk increases in a woman who gains weight as an adult, the same risk ratio may not be in question for women who have been overweight since childhood. In addition, excess fat in the chest area may pose a greater risk than fat in the hip area. Researchers believe that differences in fat cells in various parts of the body may explain this condition.

The importance of physical activity in reducing the risk of breast cancer

There is increasing evidence that physical activity in the form of exercise reduces the risk of breast cancer. The real question is how much activity is needed. At least 1.5 – 2.5 hours of brisk walking a week reduces the risk of breast cancer in women by 18%. If this walk is 10 hours a week, it reduces the risk a little more.

The relationship between nutrition and vitamins and breast cancer

The link between a woman’s dietary habits and the risk of breast cancer has been investigated. However, the results are controversial. Some studies have found that diet plays a role, while other studies have found no evidence of an effect on breast cancer risk. Dietary fat content, fruit, vegetable and meat consumption were examined. There is no clear link with breast cancer risk. In line with the inconsistent results obtained from the studies, vitamin levels were examined and an increased risk of breast cancer was detected due to excessive consumption of certain foods. No research to date has shown that the use of vitamins reduces the risk of breast cancer. In addition, it is certain that a diet low in red meat and fatty foods, mainly fruit and vegetable, will have a beneficial effect on your health in general. More research should be done before it can be concluded more clearly that a diet with fatty foods increases the risk of breast cancer. However, it is known that eating fatty foods causes weight gain, triggers many diseases and causes health problems.

Do antiperspirants increase the risk of breast cancer?

According to internet rumors, antiperspirants such as deodorant and antiperspirant applied to the armpits are absorbed by the skin and mixed with the lymph circulation, triggering breast cancer by causing toxin formation in the breast. There is little evidence to support this gossip. A small study found traces of paraben (used as an antiperspirant and preservative in other products) levels in a small sample of breast cancer tumors. However, whether paraben causes tumors has not been studied. These are previous findings. More research is needed to determine its effect. On the other hand, a large-scale study on the causes of breast cancer found no evidence of increased breast cancer in women who use underarm antiperspirants and/or shave their armpits.

Abortion and breast cancer

Neither abortion nor miscarriage has any effect on breast cancer risk.
