An Exploratory Study of Respiratory Quotient Calibration and Association with Postmenopausal Breast Cancer

Ross L. Prentice, Marian L. Neuhouser, Lesley F. Tinker, et al


The respiratory quotient (RQ), defined as the ratio of carbon dioxide exhaled to oxygen uptake, reflects substrate utilization when energy is expended. Fat and alcohol have RQ values of approximately 0.7, compared with 1.0 for carbohydrate, and approximately 0.8 for protein. Here, the association between RQ and postmenopausal breast cancer risk is studied.
