FACT SHEETS SUMMARIZE CRITICAL EVALUATIONS FOR CONSUMERS
The previous quarter has seen a significant increase in the number of fact
sheets available on the BCERF web. One of the new fact sheets summarizes
our most recent efforts in evaluating the breast cancer risk associated
with specific pesticides. This fact sheet presents our findings about
diazinon. This fact sheet is available from the fact sheet directory on
the BCERF web at -
Also made available this quarter are a variety of fact sheets dealing with
dietary factors and breast cancer risk. The topics include: dietary fat,
exercise and breast feeding. Another fact sheet we have added discusses
the uses of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the home. All of these
fact sheets are available from the URL above.
BCERF RESOURCES CONTINUE TO GROW
BCERF is dedicated to providing our readers accessible scientific
information on environmental risk factors. This quarter we have expanded
our database on breast cancer and environmental risk factors to include
over 4,200 entries. This database is searchable by key word or author, and
contains citations on breast cancer and environmental risk factors, as
well as, cutting edge papers on occupational exposures and cancer risk, the
biology of breast cancer, genetics and breast cancer risk. The database is
available at -
We are also pleased to announce that in July several new bibliographies on
the role of diet and pesticides in breast cancer risk were added to the web
site. The topics covered in these bibliographies include: dietary fat,
exercise, breast feeding and pesticide residues in food.
These bibliographies and many more can be found on
