Consumption of a high-fat diet has been associated with poor survival in breast cancer patients.
However, studies examining this association are limited and have not used adjustment of energy in their estimates.
The effect of usual diet before diagnosis of breast cancer on the risk of dying of breast cancer was examined in a cohort of women with breast cancer from the National Breast Screening Study (NBSS) in Canada.
From a cohortof 89 835 women in the NBSS, a total of 1270 histologically confirmed cases of invasive carcinoma of the breast were identified by active follow-up, supplemented by passive follow-up involving record linkage to provincial cancer registries.
