quote:Originally posted by Andrew K Fletcher"One would expect tumours to occur evenly, with 20 per cent arising in eachof the five areas of the breast," Darbre toldNew Scientist. "But theseresults help explain why up to 60 per cent of all breast tumours are foundin just one-fifth of the breast - the upper-outer quadrant, nearest theunderarm."Darbre's research did not look at the concentrations of parabens in otherareas of the breast or body tissues and Harvey cautions that thesignificance of the chemicals in tumour tissue should not beover-interpreted.
