It comes down to the fact that is the same prescription that greatly reduces the risk of numerous other diseases, including big killers like heart disease and other types of cancer:
Eat vegetables and other less processed healthy foods, don't eat junk food, exercise, don't get fat.
Unfortunately, despite all of the reasons to do that, most people don't (especially the exercise part).
In terms of breast cancer awareness, remember that men can get breast cancer, although only at 1/100 the rate that women do. However, it is often more deadly in men, because men may not realize that the lump or strange thing on their breasts can be breast cancer until it is too late.
