Etiology and Prevention: finding the underlying causes: Prevention & Risk Reduction

Research exploring methods to prevent breast cancer or reduce risk, including elimination of external causative factors (such as nutritional factors, xenoestrogens and exercise) and the identification of surrogate markers (such as genetic variation) for use in prevention trials.
