As reported on Friday 4th February 2011, lifestyle is being blamed for a huge increase in cases of breast cancer with the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer rising from one woman in nine to one woman in eight. According to new figures, published by Cancer Research UK breast cancer rates in Britain have gone up by 3.5 percent over the last decade with 47,7090 women diagnosed with the disease. In 1999 42,400 were diagnosed with breast cancer.
Excessive drinking, a poor diet and a tendency for women to have children later in life have all been blamed as causes for the rise. Drinking increases the risk of breast cancer by seven percent for each single unit of alcohol per day. Rising levels of obesity and use of hormone replacement therapy are also being blamed for the rise.
A second report released by the World Cancer Research Fund suggests that 79,000 cases of all cancers in Britain could be prevented if people did just two and a half hours of exercise a week and maintained a healthy diet and weight.
