The association between breast cancer incidence and alcohol consumption among postmenopausal women was examined in the lowa Women's Health Study.
In January 1986, a cohort of 41,837 postmenopausal women, aged 55-69 years, completed a questionnaire that included alcohol intake and other information.
Through December 1989, 493 incident breast cancer cases were identified.
Age-adjusted relative risks of consumption of less than 1.5, 1.5-4.9, 5.0-14.9, and 15.0 g or more of alcohol per day compared with abstention were 1.08, 1.10, 1.08, and 1.28, respectively (p for trend =0.11).
