Breast cancer is a complex disease caused by multiple environmental and lifestyle factors interacting with genetic susceptibility across the life span. Therefore, environmental factors are of intense interest to both researchers and community members, including women with breast cancer. There is not adequate literature that addresses this issue comprehensively from epidemiological, experimental, and translational research perspective. This book is aiming to fill this gap by gathering chapters from the most recognized experts in the field of breast biology and cancer with special interests in environmental issues.
Among the first books to Discuss environmental factors of breast cancer
Addresses breast cancer environment comprehensively from epidemiological, experimental, and translational research perspective
Includes recognized experts in the field of breast biology and cancer with special interests in environmental issues
