Hispanic women and breast cancer: An understudied group
Date:2/4/2009

t therapy, be obese and consume alcohol. All of these are known risk factors for breast cancer. By contrast, foreign-born Hispanic women without breast cancer had a larger number of children, a longer duration of breast feeding, more physical activity and a higher fiber intake. All of these factors are known to decrease breast cancer.

"Foreign-born Hispanic women have a lower risk for breast cancer than U.S.-born Hispanic women, and differences in reproductive and lifestyle factors explain some of the difference in risk, but not all of it," said John. "What is interesting is that over the long term, foreign-born Hispanic immigrants adopt behaviors that place them at greater risk for breast cancer."
