Question from a student

  1. i am doing my homework for med surg and we are studying interventions for the client with breast disorders:
    my question is could someone help me find the rationale behind this i can't find it in my book:

    what are the implications of early pregnancy on development of breast cancer?

    the answer in the back of the book says:
    early intercourse and pregnancy may correlate with decreased risk for breast cancer due to decreased exposure to hormonal stimulation.

    i cannot recall this from anatomy and physiology. can someone please explain so i can understand this. i just don't want to copy this answer from the back of my book.
    thanks for helping!!!!
