Breast Cancer, PCBs and Dioxin
Resource location: foxriverwatch.com
Abstract: This health section includes summaries of 128 studies on the links between breast cancer and exposure to PCBs or dioxin. At least 24 studies of human populations show a possible link between PCBs and breast cancer. More than 50 additional laboratory studies illustrate in animals or cell cultures how PCBs may cause or promote breast cancer. Also, three studies of humans show a link between dioxin and breast cancer. These last three are important because certain PCBs are dioxin-like and PCBs are frequently contaminated with dioxins.
