Abstract

The recent article by Krieger et al. is the second to appear in the Journal regarding organochlorine compounds and breast cancer. The study was well designed, carefully conducted, and properly analyzed and yielded evidence that clearly supports an association between DDE and breast cancer. Having read media reports, including the authors' own interpretation of their study as "negative," our review of the data in the article lead to a strikingly different conclusion.
