Study: Casual Smoking Increases Risk Of Breast Cancer

December 22, 2009

Researcher Ivana T. Croghan of the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Research Program and colleagues have found out that women who smoke more than 100 cigarettes in their lifetime, are at increased risk of developing breast cancer. However, women can still improve their odds if they quit smoking.

The research compared 1,225 women with breast cancer to 6,872 who did not have the disease, looking at smoking history and other known risk factors for cancer. These findings sharply contradict past studies that found no link between smoking and breast cancer.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is seeking local community-based organizations to conduct demonstration programs to demonstrate the feasibility and effect of pairing two complementary strategies for reducing teenagers’ access to alcohol: Social Norming and High Visibility Enforcement. Social Norming is the process of flooding a target population with information designed to correct their misperceptions about the frequency and acceptability of specific activities. High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) pairs extensive publicity of concentrated enforcement with police activity focused on violators of certain laws.

PerformTech, Inc., is providing logistical and technical support to NHTSA in this effort. PerformTech will award two 29-month, $200,000 contracts for conducting these demonstration programs. To view the announcement and obtain details about how to receive the RFP go to:
