Bisphenol-A (BPA) is widely accepted as an endocrine disruptor, but evidence is lacking to establish BPA as a breast carcinogen. Human studies of the health effects of BPA are scarce, and studies of BPA are largely limited to laboratory studies. BPA is present in plastic consumer products including canned food linings and #7 polycarbonate plastics. According to recent NHANES data, human exposure is widespread. Amy Trentham-Dietz, University of Wisconsin, describes the results of her study to evaluate the association between BPA exposure and breast cancer risk in adult women. Relations between the three phenols and breast density are presented as well as relations between several sex hormones including estradiol with breast density. Results provide preliminary evidence to guide additional studies on the effects of xenoestrogens like BPA on the risk of breast cancer.

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.

Early pregnancy and multiparity are known to reduce the risk of women to develop breast cancer at menopause. The differentiation of the breast induced by the hormones of pregnancy is thought to play a major role in this protection. Jose Russo, Fox Chase Cancer Center, examines the mechanism mediating the protection of the breast conferred by full term pregnancy.

Studies attempting to identify breast cancer risk factors have focused mainly on genetics and lifestyle in adult women. However, there is growing evidence that young girls may be particularly sensitive to exposures (e.g., ionizing radiation exposure, childhood and adolescent growth, body composition, and physical activity) that are associated with either initiation of breast cancer or protection against breast cancer.

Marj Plumb, DrPH, looks back on research presented in an earlier session regarding Korenman's suggestion in 1980 that puberty and perimenopause were two "windows" of maximum breast cancer inducibility by environmental carcinogens. The previous session focused on several exposures that are of particular relevance to peri- and postmenopausal women including obesity, postmenopausal hormone use, and environmental chemicals. The potential connections between the different windows of susceptibility are also addressed.

Epidemiologic and experimental data have shown that a full term pregnancy reduces breast cancer risk. However, recent studies have suggested that while full term pregnancy does reduce risk for estrogen receptor and luminal breast cancers, pregnancy may actually increase risk of more aggressive basal-like breast cancers. There are complex relationships between age, race, parity, and obesity in observational human datasets making it difficult to translate these findings into public health messages. Melissa Troester, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, addresses tumor heterogeneity, focusing specifically on the basal-like breast cancer subtype and the microenvironment changes that promote this breast cancer subtype during a vital window of susceptibility, the post partum period.
