Calif. Researchers Say Increase in Thyroid Cancer Could Be Linked to Environmental, Behavioral Factors
Researchers at the California-based Cancer Prevention Institute say there is an epidemic of thyroid cancer, with the rate of such cancer among women doubling from 1990 to 2005. Christina Clarke, with the institute, said research findings "suggest that there's something new in our environment or in what we're doing that is causing this cancer."
