ABSTRACT: Height and Breast Cancer Risk: Results from the Black
Women's Health Study
Objectives: Numerous studies, but not all, have yielded
positive associations between adult height and risk of breast
cancer. There are few data on black women. We evaluated adult
height in relation to breast cancer in data from the Black Women's
Health Study, a prospective cohort study of 64,530 African-American
women aged 18-69 years at baseline in 1995.
Conclusion: The present findings indicate that height is
associated with breast cancer risk in African-American women.
