Despite what many food and supplement manufacturers want you to believe, no one food or ingredient can protect you from breast cancer. But thanks to ongoing research, we have a good sense of what to eat — and avoid — to cut cancer risk.

First, the big picture: Choose foods and drinks that will help you reach a healthy weight and stay there. Being significantly overweight raises your risk of developing breast cancer and negatively impacts how well you'll recover from it.

Eating healthfully not only helps you reach and maintain a proper weight but fills you with vital, disease-fighting nutrients — many of which are just being discovered.

Check out the slideshow above to learn which foods to eat to lower your risk.
