The purpose of this study was to identify the risk factors of breast disease by checking the difference in lifestyle and the natural estrogen-containing food intake. The subjects were women who visited the J-City Women's Hospital between the ages of 20 and 60 (disease=85, non disease=93) and to avoid the demographic factors that might affect lifestyle, and to ensure the homogeneity of the two groups, (${\pm}5$ years old) were randomly expressed. The logistic regression analysis was performed to examine the influence of variables on breast disease. The probability of receiving a diagnosis of breast disease increased by 3.04 times, the probability of receiving a diagnosis of breast disease was 4.76 times higher than that of others such as brown rice grains, and the hobby life of stress relieving methods The probability of being classified as breast disease was 2.38 times. People who have experience of artificial abortion, those who enjoy white rice, and those who do not enjoy hobbies are more likely to be diagnosed with breast disease. The breast disease prevention and education program and the education program for the general public reflecting this characteristic will be necessary.
