ABSTRACT

The association between nutrition and cancer in general had been a controversial issue between scientists in the last three decades, because some argued that there is a relationship and some nutrients can help in preventing cancer occurrence, although this has not been a consistent finding by other studies. Studies were identified through a systematic review of literature available on PubMed in between 1st January 2010 to 31st December 2013. We included all studies that assessed nutrition or diet with occurrence or mortality of breast cancer. Out of 42 articles, we included 8 articles in our screening and discussion. Among these 8 studies, there were 2 case-controls, 3 cohort and 3 randomized control trials (RCT) studies. Although most studies reported that nutrition is associated with decreased risk, some reported the contrary,whereas others reported no relation. It was demonstrated a conflict between the included papers in regards of the association between nutrition and breast cancer. These finding needs to be re-evaluated in future studies.

Keywords: Nutrition, Breast cancer, Food intake, Diet
