Etiology: the role of environment and lifestyle: Environment & gene/environment interactions

We encourage studies on breast cancer initiation that may be due to environmental exposures that subject women to agents that they, as individuals, cannot control. Other key topics of interest include breast cancer causes related to lifestyle (e.g., diet,
