Chemoprevention is another important strategy against breast cancer which can and must be implemented, adopting a similar attitude to that which has been employed for a long time with encouraging results by cardiologists in their own field. The efficacy of the chemopreventive approach is based on a remarkably large host of solid data from the last 20 years.

Micronutrients that are considered to have protective potential against breast cancer are vitamin E and selenium (Knekt 1991; Osborne and Telang 1991).

Perhaps more importantly, new drugs are currently under evaluation which mimic the positive effects of estrogens on both bone and cardiovascular system without increasing the cancer risk for breast and uterus: these are the selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs).
