Three breast cancer risk factors were evaluated in terms of their interactions with radiation dose in a case-control interview study of Japanese A-bomb survivors. Cases and controls were matched on age at the time of the hombings and radiation dose, and dose-related risk was estimated from cohort rather than case-control data. Each factor—age at first full-term pregnancy, number of deliveries, and cumulative lactation period summed over births—conformed reasonably well to a multiplicative… CONTINUE READING
