4th Edition of State of the Evidence Published
The fourth edition highlighted that half of breast cancers cannot be explained by genetics or lifestyle factors.
The Breast Cancer Fund and Breast Cancer Action publish the fourth edition of the landmark report, State of the Evidence: What Is the Connection Between the Environment and Breast Cancer? According to the report, as many as 50 percent of breast cancer cases remain unexplained by either genetics or lifestyle factors. Instead, it points to some of the 100,000 synthetic chemicals in use today, as well as radiation exposure from X-rays and CT scans, as contributing to the development of breast cancer.
