Dr Ruth Swann talks to ecancer at the 2013 NCRI Cancer Conference about breast cancer survival rates and the largest prospective observational study that examined the relationship between diet and lifestyle and breast cancer recurrence and survival rates of patients in the UK.

The DietCompLyf study showed a significant inverse association between pre-diagnosis phytoestrogen consumption and possession of breast cancer risk factors. The data from the study will provide the necessary evidence base on which to test dietary and lifestyle recommendations for breast cancer patients, the overall aim of which is to reduce breast cancer recurrence rates.
