Early Occupational Chemical Exposure May Cause Breast Cancer

This article from RedOrbit.com might be of interest to you if you or someone you know worked in a manufacturing plant back in your 20's or early 30's. Apparently, some studies indicate that there may be an increased risk for breast cancer for women who were exposed to some chemicals/fibers premenopausally. Just something to be aware of---and a reminder to get regular mammograms.
