Dietary Cadmium Linked to Breast Cancer
Dietary cadmium that is found in the environment and in phosphate fertilizers has contaminated farmlands and may lead to an increased risk of breast cancer according to a study published in Cancer Research in March of 2012. A study of nearly 56,000 women conducted over 12 years showed that higher exposure to cadmium via diet was linked with a 21% increased risk for developing breast cancer. The main sources of cadmium were from bread and cereals, potatoes, root crops and vegetables.
