The author comments on the study that finds no benefit of a dietary intervention for breast cancer in women who previously treated for early-stage cancer. She asserts that the dietary intervention might be more beneficial in decreasing risk for incident breast cancer. She suggests that the better evaluation of the effect of a healthy diet on breast cancer risk would be held on the earlier stage of life of a patient
