Dutch Women get Cancer Relatively Often

Dutch women get cancer more often in the lungs, the head/neck area, the esophagus, breast and skin. This is the result of an unhealthy way of living and risky behavior in the past, such as too much sunbathing and smoking. These results are from the doctoral thesis of the epidemiologist Henrike Karim-Kos. She claims inter alia that Dutch women run higher risks of breast cancer because they have their first child later in life and don’t breast feed as much compared to other European countries.
