A case-control study has been conducted to investigate the relationship between total energy intake, fibre and nutrients and colon cancer in Argentina.
Cases are 110 newly diagnosed patients from 10 hospitals between 1985 and 1986.
Two neighbourhood controls per case were matched on age, sex and place of residence.
The intake of calories, fibre and nutrients was estimated from the information collected on food consumption during the 5-year period up to 6 months prior to inteview of subjects, based on a pilot study and standard portion sizes in Argentina.
