  1. Body measurements, estrogen availability and the risk of human breast cancer : a case-control study.

    Article - En anglais

    Recent studies on lifestyle-related mechanisms involved in cardiovascular risk offer important clues for a better understanding of breast-cancer epidemiology.

    Central body-fat distribution promoted by an affluent dietary intake and a sedentary lifestyle over many years is related to elevated serum triglycerides and free fatty acids, with lower levels of sex-hormone-binding globulin (SHBG).

    The resulting greater availability of estradiol not bound to SHBG could help to explain the high breast-cancer incidence in Western industrialized countries.
