Increased cadmium may increase risk of endometrial cancer

Endometrial Cancer

Cadmium exposure and endometrial cancer risk: A large midwestern U.S. population-based case-control study.

Estrogen-mimicking chemicals, such as cadmium, may be associated with increased susceptibility to hormone-dependent cancers, though supporting data are sparse, particularly for endometrial cancer. The Health and Environmental Exposure Research (HEER) study worked with the Arkansas Central Cancer Registry, Iowa Cancer Registry and Missouri Cancer Registry to obtain names of women diagnosed with endometrial cancer who were willing to be contacted for participation in our case control study.
