Genome-wide association studies are discovering relationships between single-nucleotide polymorphisms and breast cancer, but the functions of these single-nucleotide polymorphisms are unknown and environmental exposures are likely to be important. We assessed whether breast cancer risk single-nucleotide polymorphisms interacted with ionizing radiation, a known breast carcinogen, among 859 cases and 1,083 controls nested in the U.S. Radiologic Technologists cohort. Among 11 Breast Cancer… CONTINUE READING
