Life course weight trajectory and risk of breast cancer.
This project will use a life-course approach to examine the associations between weight trajectory patterns and subsequent risk of breast cancer. In addition to examining the overall impacts of distinct BMI trajectory patterns on breast cancer risk, we will further explore impacts of various BMI metrics over the life course (for those women who became obese after baseline), such as age at onset of obesity, duration of being obese, and obese-years (product of the degree and the duration of obesity similar conceptually to pack-years for smoking), on the risk of breast cancer.
