"Air pollution and Breast Cancer: Evaluating Exposure Mixtures and Underlying Pathways"

Although air pollution is an established risk factor for lung cancer, less is known about how air pollution is related to other cancer types. Increasingly epidemiologic studies suggest a relationship between air pollution and increased breast cancer risk. However, less is known about how different air pollution constituents may influence the risk of breast cancer and the underlying biologic pathways that may contribute to risk.
