"A study at the University of Oxford has found that lower rates of breast cancer among Indian and other south Asian women as compared to white women in Britain were due to differences in lifestyle and reproductive patterns. South Asian and black women in the study by the university’s Cancer Epidemiology Unit had more children than white women, were more likely to breastfeed them, and were less likely to drink alcohol and to have a first-degree relative with breast cancer.
