PRHE has recently been featured in the news of the reproductive and environmental health world. We're very excited about these recent publications so we thought we would share with you in case you missed it!
Ami Zota, ScD, Postdoctoral Fellow at PRHE, co-authored a paper titled, "Self-reported chemicals exposure, beliefs about disease causation, and risk of breast cancer in the Cape Cod Breast Cancer and Environment Study: a case-control study." This article, which is the first published report on cleaning product use and risk of breast cancer, gained lots of media attention and is in the top 10 most-accessed papers of the year for the journal Environmental Health. Read the paper and see why.
Tracey Woodruff, PhD, MPH, Director of PRHE and Patrice Sutton, MPH, Research Scientist at PRHE, recently published an editorial in Environmental Health Perspectives titled, "Pulling Back the Curtain: Improving Reviews in Environmental Health."
