Abstract: Researchers are asking whether women and young girls may be able to reduce breast cancer risk by early adoption of healthful behaviors, such as eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans, and getting regular exercise. Also, minimizing young girls' exposure to cancer-causing agents may be important in reducing their risk of breast cancer.
