Early Life Factors and Reproductive Timing: Evidence on Menarche and Menopause

9/11/2013; 24 minutes

Mary Beth Terry, Columbia University, explains that accumulating evidence from both human population and animal studies supports a role for the prenatal and early life environment in influencing breast cancer risk. Timing of menarche and menopause are also important predictors of breast cancer risk. Prenatal and early life factors that have been associated with breast cancer risk have not always been associated with age at menarche and intermediate markers of breast cancer risk like breast density in the same way.
