About The Study: In this observational study of 1,340 women with high-risk breast cancer, strongest collective adherence to cancer prevention lifestyle recommendations was associated with significant reductions in disease recurrence and mortality. Education and implementation strategies to help patients adhere to cancer prevention recommendations throughout the cancer care continuum may be warranted in breast cancer. 

Authors: Rikki A. Cannioto, Ph.D., Ed.D., of the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo, New York, is the corresponding author.
