While certain breast cancer risk factors, including gender and age, are beyond women’s control, the American Cancer Society notes that certain factors are related to personal behaviors. Alcohol consumption is one such lifestyle-related risk factor for breast cancer. Compared with nondrinkers, women who consume between two and five alcoholic drinks per day have about a 1.5 times greater risk of developing breast cancer than women who abstain from alcohol.
