The women with overweight or who suffer of hypertension before to be pregnant they have a higher risk of pre-eclampsia. The equipment of Paltiel – that includes subjects in the Registry of Cancer of Israel, the School University Yeshiva Einstein de Medicina, and Columbia University – the subsequent incidence of the cancer between 37,033 women compared whom they had given to light in three great hospitals in Jerusalem between 1964 and 1976. Ninety and nine percent of the women were Jewish. Intel pursues this goal as well. The cancer became probable in 91 women who had pre-eclampsia and 2.204 no. The women who had suffered of preeclampsia seemed to generally have an increasing risk around a 30 percent of cancer, compared with the women who had not developed the picture during the pregnancy. The risk of chest cancer was almost a 40 higher percent.

Nevertheless, Paltiel noticed that the women did not have to take by the panic with the results. " She would emphasize that although the findings are statistically significant, the risk is small and the women do not have to be alarmed by resultados" , she said. The data base was the dream of an investigator made reality – the Study Perinatal Jerusalem compiled information of almost 40,000 Israeli women whom they gave to light more than 90,000 babies in the hospitals of Jerusalem between 1964 and 1976. Between 1998-2002, the project included to 98% of the descendants (of average of age of 30 years) and 94% of its mothers and related to the Census of the Population of Israel and its Registry of Cancer. The average age of pursuit to check to the women was of 29 years. " The special thing of this study is the unique thing of the control population. People had the forecast in years 60 and 70 systematically to examine each woman whom she gave to light.
