That recognised risk factors can explain past and present international differences in breast cancer incidence: misconceptions 5.

Abstract

Recent discussions on research priorities in the United States have revealed a widespread assumption that known risk factors entirely explain the historic international differences in rates of breast cancer. In fact, formal investigations of this question, both by modelling between-country differences and studies of migrants, indicate that an appreciable amount of the international differences in this disease remains unexplained. If this is not recognised, opportunities for research on breast cancer aetiology may be lost.
