    Greater body fatness was found to be a risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer (BC); furthermore this factor appears to be associated with poor prognosis. These findings were tested by analyzing 1459 patients whose cases were recorded in the Basler Mammakarzinom-Datenbank (1990-2009) and...
