What you will learn
The lifetime risk of breast cancer is 12.5 percent, meaning that one in eight women will be diagnosed. Diet, age, and genetic predisposition are established risk factors, although the majority of breast cancers occur with unknown etiology. Imbalanced microbiota (dysbiosis) are associated with obesity, diabetes, and cancer. In this talk, we will review the proven lifestyle strategies that may reduce breast cancer risk, including nutrition, time-restricted eating, correction of dyscircadianism, and the emerging therapeutic role of microbial management.By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Review current nutritional and nutragenomic strategies to reduce breast cancer diagnosis and recurrence
- Apply the recent findings of intermittent fasting in women in order to lower risk
- Identify the microbial changes associated with development of breast cancer and emerging strategies to improve terrain
