Breast Cancer/ Left Breast vs. Right Breast
Australian researchers are casting doubt on a new study out of the Netherlands, which has established a possible link between left handed women and breast cancer.

Left-handedness is a marker for increased breast cancer risk Posted: June 19, Based on the few studies that have been performed, being left-handed appears to be a marker of increased risk of breast cancer. The most recent study examining this question found that the risk of developing postmenopausal breast cancer among left-handed women was more than twice the risk of right-handers. The explanation that has been proposed for the link to handedness is that high exposure to estrogens in the womb influences the part of the brain that determines whether a person will be left-handed or right-handed. In support of this theory, it has been noted that women exposed to diethylstilbestrol DES in the womb are more likely to be left-handed than the general population.
