June 16 2006

In women with large breasts higher risk of breast cancer, say scientists at Harvard . They spent years of research and have established a connection between the mass of breast cancer in young women with normal weight and the risk of breast cancer in doklimaktericheskom age.

Began research in 1989, it was attended by about 90,000 working women aged 25 to 42 years. Each of them every two years, filled the questionnaire, which indicated their height, weight and bra size, which wore in the 20 years of age. By 2001, 803 women have been diagnosed with breast cancer. After analyzing the data collected, the researchers established the link between bra size for women with normal weight at a young age and risk of breast cancer.

According to scientists, the risk of breast cancer turned out to be several times higher than those of women, body mass index of less than 25 and bra size D or larger. And obese women with large breasts, this relationship is absent.

Scientists believe that this is due to the relatively large number of cells in the mammary glands and higher levels of estrogen in the blood.
