In the clinical arena, discussions on breast cancer prevention and treatment often center on what is considered most "cutting edge," from genetic mechanisms of disease to new combination pharmacotherapies to breast-conserving surgical innovations. But another field of study, targeting the potential roles of nutrition in breast cancer risk, remains commonly neglected by the medical community. What parts do nutritional choices and habits play in breast cancer development, and how can clinicians make better risk assessments given this information?

Dr. Edward Sauter, Professor of Surgery and Director of the Cancer Treatment and Prevention Center at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center, joins Dr. Matt Birnholz to discuss emerging connections between nutrition and breast cancer.
