The study results also indicated that longer duration of physical activity provides the most benefit [36]. 10 Anthropometric Factors Anthropometric factors such as body height, weight, and adiposity have been extensively studied in epidemiologic studies of breast cancer [37, 38]. Body fat provides a substrate for the production of estrogen from androgen in adipose tissue [39]. In the Cancer Prevention Study II cohort (n = 495,477 women), Calle et al. found that women with higher values of body mass index had an increased risk of dying from breast cancer and certain other cancers [40].

Age-standardized incidence rates are higher among white women than black women, although black women in the United States have a higher mortality rate than white women. Incidence rates for Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Hispanic women in the United States are generally lower than those for white or black women [5, 6] (Fig. 1). The incidence of breast cancer in the United States increased until about 2000 then decreased from 2002 to 2003 [7]. Most of the decrease in that period was among women with estrogen receptor positive cancers [8].

1 Family History of Cancer Having a positive family history of breast cancer is an established risk factor for the disease. Women who have one first degree relative with breast cancer have about a two-fold increased risk of developing breast cancer [64, 65]. Risk increases the younger the relative was at the time of diagnosis and with increasing number of first-degree relatives with breast cancer [3]. About 20 % of breast cancer patients have a family history of the disease in a first degree relative.
