A large study published last month which looked at over 90,000 women found that eating a high-fiber diet in early adulthood, which included plenty of fruit and vegetables, could lower the risk of breast cancer in later life by 12 to 19 per cent compared to those who ate much less or no dietary fiber at all.

Enjoying a daily coffee could help as well, with numerous studies showing the health benefits of drinking your morning cup of joe. A 2015 study of 1,000 colon cancer patients found that coffee lovers who drank four or more cups of coffee a day were 42 per cent less likely to have their cancer return than non-coffee drinkers, and 34 per cent less likely to die from cancer or any other cause.

GOOD OILS

Good fats found in foods such as oily fish could also be beneficial, with a review of 26 previous studies covering more than 800,000 participants finding that eating a portion of oily fish such as tuna, salmon, or sardines one to two times a week can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
