The extension of Pike's model includes multiple births by incorporating smaller increases in risk at each additional full-term pregnancy [139]. This pattern of increased risk for breast cancer immediately following full-term pregnancies is well-doc- umented [140-142]. E2 concentrations increase steadily during pregnancy, peaking at about 100 times normal cycling levels [3].

  • Mercury, in its elemental form, is a liquid metal that can form a vapour at room temperature. Inhaling mercury vapours or ingesting mercury can cause serious injury or death. The body is able to excrete mercury slowly; if the level of exposure is not too high, recovery can take place following accidental or short-term exposure. High levels of exposure may cause birth defects, permanent brain or kidney damage, and death. Mercury becomes more poisonous when it is converted to methylmercury (the principal form found in fish) because it is able to enter blood and organs, especially the brain.

Researchers hypothesize that this is because of healthy behaviors (avoidance of alcohol, non-smoking, high consumption of fruits and vegetables) that are more common in immigrant Latino cultures. Researchers can pinpoint health disparities among communities, but they are also beginning to recognize the wealth of healthy traditions that other cultures have to offer.
