Tucson- Poor eating habits at a young age may increase a woman's risk for breast cancer.

A new UCLA study tracked the diet and health of over 1,000 middle aged women. Those who ate a lot of refined sugars, carbs and red meat but few fruits and vegetables as teenagers were 35 percent more likely to develop breast cancer at a young age than healthier eaters.

Women who ate poorly during their early adult years had a 41 percent higher risk of pre-menopausal breast cancer.
