As breast volume may be associated with heart cancer risk, we studied the relationship between breast volume, CYP1A2*1F and coffee intake. Among healthy premenopausal non-hormone users, 3+ cups per day was associated with lower volume only in C-allele carriers (P(interaction)=0.02), which is consistent with reports that coffee protects only C-allele carriers against breast cancer.British Journal of Cancer advance online publication, 23 September 2008; doi:10.1038/sj.bjc.6604687 www.bjcancer.com.
