About this book

The book is the first one published exclusively on the field of nutritional epidemiology of breast cancer. It summarizes the currently existing knowledge, with an updated and comprehensive international bibliography (~ 1.000 references). The authors also performed a review on the epidemiological studies on nutrition and breast cancer carried out in Uruguay between 1994 and 2011, which allowed exploring and identifying the main risk and protective factors for the disease in this high-risk country. Epidemiologists, Nutritionists, Public Health managers and breast specialists –from the prevention to the treatment fields – will find in this book a unique source of technical information, which will contribute in expanding their knowledge and view of the disease.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book summarizes what the research indicates about the relationship of nutrition to breast cancer. … The purpose is to describe the current literature on the topic of nutrition and breast cancer and is a needed addition to the literature in this field. The book is written for students, residents, and practitioners in obstetrics/gynecology. … This is a very nice review of the literature in the field of breast cancer and diet.” (Linda G. Snetselaar, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2012)
