Increased risk of breast cancer with alcohol consumption in postmenopausal women.
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).
