Breast Cancer Research is excited to present a curated collection on how different lifestyles, health, and populations are linked to breast cancer. Edited by one of our Deputy Editors, Dr. Leslie Bernstein is a leading epidemiologist in identifying physical activity as a means to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Dr. Bernstein would like to draw attention to two publications that come to different conclusions about the historical use of low-dose aspirin: one by Christina A.
