Abstract

Among the 51,823 postmenopausal women in the Swedish Mammography Cohort, we investigated breast cancer risk in relation to the FFQ-based estimated lignan intake by oestrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) subtypes. A significant 17% risk reduction for breast cancer overall in the high lignan quartile was observed, especially among PMH user (P interaction<0.010), but no heterogeneity across ER/PR subtypes.
