A case-control study was undertaken to investigate the role of diet in women with breast cancer, and in two groups of women with benign breast disease: epithelial hyperplasia, and fibrocystic disease without hyperplasia. The study provides data which suggest that the consumption of red meat, savoury meals (pizza, pies, stew, etc.) and of starches is(More)
A case-control study was undertaken to investigate the possibility of an association between stressful life events and the development of breast cancer. Ninety-nine breast cancer cases, and 99 controls matched by age and area of residence, completed a life events inventory to measure life change and distress scores over a 2-year and a 10-year period.

An Australian study of 513 women evaluated associations between obesity and both benign and malignant breast disease, and in particular investigated the role of female sex hormones. Women who gained more than 10 kg from early womanhood had a two-fold increase in risk of developing breast cancer, whereas lean women had a greater risk of being treated for(More)
A study of 424 women was undertaken to determine whether there was an association between serum prolactin levels and breast cancer; whether prolactin levels would reflect degrees of risk of developing breast cancer; and whether associations between known risk factors for breast cancer and serum prolactin concentrations could be demonstrated. Prolactin(More)
Although women with breast cancer tend to have a greater proportion of their circulating oestradiol non-protein bound and albumin bound, and less SHBG-bound, than controls, it remains uncertain whether this has an aetiological role or is an effect of the tumour. Oestradiol and its binding to serum proteins was investigated: (a) in relation to risk factors(More)
The rate of growth and spread of breast cancer varies considerably from patient to patient. An observational study was undertaken to identify possible associations between breast cancer growth characteristics and a wide variety of host factors, including demographic, anthropometric, hormonal and dietary variables in 91 patients with breast cancer.(More)
