State of the evidence 2017: an update on the connection between breast cancer and the environment
Singly and in combination, these toxicants may have contributed significantly to the increasing rates of breast cancer observed over the past several decades. Exposures early in development from gestation through adolescence and early adulthood are particularly of concern as they re-shape the program of genetic, epigenetic and physiological processes in the developing mammary system, leading to an increased risk for developing breast cancer. In the 8 years since we last published a comprehensive review of the relevant literature, hundreds of new papers have appeared supporting this link, and in...
The Breast Cancer Fund: Working Women and Breast Cancer
The State of the Evidence Based on the current evidence, action to reduce workplace exposures linked to breast cancer is imperative. The Breast Cancer Fund has spent nearly 15 years translating the science that links environmental exposures to breast cancer, and advocating for change. In the past several years, it has become increasingly evident that the workplace may be a substantive source of many of these exposures and of the resulting risk for breast cancer. Source:
Occupational Exposure to Ionizing Radiation and Risk of Breast Cancer in Western Australia
Objective: To evaluate current breast cancer risk due to occupational exposure to ionizing radiation. Methods: We analyzed data from the Western Australian population-based Breast Cancer Employment and Environment Study. The Breast Cancer Employment and Environment Study included 1205 cases with incident breast cancer during 2009–2011 and 1789 controls. Age-adjusted odds ratios (ORs) were estimated with logistic regression models. Results: There was a weak, not statistically significant association between breast cancer and occupational exposure to ionizing radiation (OR = 1.16; 95% confidence...
