  1. A search for recall bias in a case-control study of diet and breast cancer.

    Background

    In retrospective studies of dietary habits and breast cancer risk, recall bias is a concern since diet has been publicized as a cause of breast cancer.

    Methods

    In a case-control study of diet and breast cancer risk nested within a cohort of women screened with mammography, we contrasted answers to a retrospective dietary interview with answers to a dietary questionnaire which was filled out before any diagnostic procedures for breast cancer were undertaken.

    The source population was all women aged 40-74 in two counties in Sweden invited to mammographic screening and asked to fill out a questionnaire before the screening.

    Cases and controls were subsequently defined-matched on age, county of residence, and time of mammography - and approached for an interview.

    Results

    In all, 265 cases and 431 controls participated in the study.

    Means of monthly frequencies differed between the questionnaire and the interview for both cases and controls to a similar degree in all food groups.

    The percentage of agreement in the questionnaire's and the interview's classifications of study subjects into quartiles of monthly intake varied between 31% and 57%. Kappa statistics in all food groups were below 0.41.

    These measures of agreement did not differ between cases and controls.

    In a regression analysis, case subjects with low respons...
