In contrast, late-onset breast cancer could be due to an early mutagenic initiating event, which is then subjected to later life exposure to endogenous or exogenous promoting agent(s) and further compounded by age-related impairments in macromolecular repair, immune surveillance, or xenobiotic detoxification. This could explain the increased risk from HRT. Risk factors are greatly influenced by epigenetic mechanisms that change gene expression patterns for cell differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis.

Furthermore, DNA hypermethylation results in aberrant regulation of the Wnt pathway in breast cancer [101]; BRCA1 expression is suppressed by a combination of gene mutation and DNA hypermethylation [102]. One epidemiological study of the interactions between alcohol consumption and breast cancer risk in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers reported no significant interaction with BRCA1 mutations but a greater risk of alcohol-associated breast cancer in women with BRCA2 mutations [103]. In fact, the same investigators reported an inverse association between breast cancer and current alcohol consumption in women with a BRCA1 mutation [104].

The Women’s Health Study in the USA conducted a 10-years follow-up on 38,454 women 45 years or older who were free of cancer and cardiovascular disease at baseline and provided detailed dietary information, including alcohol consumption [27]. 32) that was limited to ER+ and PR+ tumors. 99 for ER–/PR– tumors.
