Nobody knows the answer to that question!
The current thinking is that there are many factors involved and there is a trigger that causes the cells to grow and reproduce.
These factors can be any combination of genetics, lifestyle, diet, weight ,age and environment.
So one can only try to live a healthy lifestyle and a diet low in fats and processed foods. However the other factors are not really under your control. So the best thing to do is to get your mammograms, do self exams and if you suspect anything go to your doctor immediately.
