Greater Cancer Risk Among Taller Women

By

Taller women may have an increased risk of developing certain cancers. Overall, cancer risk increases by 16% for every 4-inch increase in height. These findings were recently reported in Lancet Oncology. Greater insight into height and cancer risk may help researchers expand their understanding of basic mechanisms that cause cancer. Previous studies have indicated that […]
