Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In 1940, an American woman's lifetime risk of breast cancer was about 1-in-20. By 1993, that risk had become 1-in-8. This volume examines the evidence linking this alarming rise to the parallel increase in the use of estrogen, especially the Pill and hormone replacement therapy. Annotation c.
