Teen Habits and Future Cancer Risk

Today’s issue of Cancer Research Update looks at how what teens eat, drink and weigh may influence their future cancer risk.  The story focuses on girls’ lifestyle habits and future breast cancer risk and the research is intriguing, but just emerging. Some of the strongest evidence relates to drinking alcohol.

This topic is part of a bigger picture in research on cancer risk, where scientists look at risk over a person’s life course.
