that the world's population would outgrow its food supply, prompting starvation on an epic scale. "The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit...
Women With Atypia Nearly Eight Times More Likely to Develop Breast Cancer
...pia lasts. The most commonly used tool for risk prediction
in women with atypia is the Gail model, which may predict inaccurately because our study shows that family history does not change risk significantly in women with atypia. Our findings indicate that women with atypia have a higher absolute risk for...
