Mapping the risk of breast cancer to exposure from traffic-related air pollution using land-use regression in Vancouver, BC
An environmental role in breast cancer etiology has been suspected but evidence is still inconclusive. Traffic-related air pollution is a potentially modifiable risk factor that has been studied in the etiology of breast ...
Genetic variation in vitamin D-related genes among European and East Asian women and risk of breast cancer and risk according to breast tumour subtypes
Vitamin D is hypothesized to decrease breast cancer risk by controlling cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis, and estrogen synthesis and signalling in breast tissue. Transport of circulating vitamin D to sites ...
