Dietary lignans and postmenopausal breast cancer risk by oestrogen receptor status: a prospective cohort study of Swedish women
2008 (English)In: British Journal of Cancer, ISSN 0007-0920, E-ISSN 1532-1827, Vol. 98, no 3, 636-640 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Among the 51 823 postmenopausal women in the Swedish Mammography Cohort, we investigated breast cancer risk in relation to the FFQ-based estimated lignan intake by oestrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) subtypes. A significant 17% risk reduction for breast cancer overall in the high lignan quartile was observed, especially among PMH user (P-interaction < 0.010), but no heterogeneity across ER/PR subtypes.
