    association

    Hello
    This is the title of an article which I am working on, "Study on of the association between vitamin D intake and serum 25 hydroxy-cholecalciferol density and risk of breast cancer." would you please tell me if there is something wrong with it? Isn't it better to change the last "and" to "with"?

    I'm no medical expert, but I would change it to "to" if it is understood that "vitamin D intake and serum 25 hydroxy-cholecalciferol density" combined are somehow related to the "risk of breast cancer".
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    In addition to Charlie's comments, I find the use of the word "density" there to be odd. I think "level" or "concentration" would be more common.

    "Study on of..." is a bit odd too.

    Charliedeut did delete the "of" in the quote in his reply. It was a little hard to see.

    I would have used "Study of the association" but I have a feeling that in medical fields, people do say "Study on ...". I could be wrong.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I missed that, thanks.
