A case-control study of 689 breast cancer patients seen at Tata Memorial Hospital during the period 1980-84 was carried out.
During the same period 711 females who attended the hospital without a history of benign breast lesions or gynaecological complaints were selected as controls.
Patients were interviewed by trained investigators to collect data on reproductive factors, menstrual history, tobacco smoking and chewing habit, dietary practices (vegetarian and non-vegetarian diet) and alcohol consumption.
Cases and controls were stratified into four age groups (<35 years, 35-44,45-54 and 55+years) and three places of residence (Bombay, Maharashtra, others).
