State of the Evidence
The Connection Between Breast Cancer and the Environment
From 2002 to 2010, the Breast Cancer Fund produced six editions of the landmark report, State of the Evidence: The Connection between Breast Cancer and the Environment. Each edition presented a comprehensive summary of the scientific evidence to date linking exposures to chemicals and radiation in our everyday environments to increased breast cancer risk. Access a PDF of the 2010 edition, authored by Janet Gray, Ph.D.
Now we’ve made the science more accessible than ever by translating the printed report into dynamic online content that’s available right here on this website. Explore the evidence in the Clear Science section.
