About Us

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst are looking for breastfeeding moms and pregnant mothers, to participate in a groundbreaking study funded by the National Institutes of Health. The UMass Amherst research team – Kathleen Arcaro (environmental toxicologist), Lindiwe Sibeko (nutrition scientist and extension faculty), and Susan Sturgeon (cancer epidemiologist), and a team of students – will examine whether a diet rich in fruits and vegetables reduces biomarkers of breast cancer risk.
