Intake of vegetables, fruits, beta-carotene, vitamin C and vitamin supplements and cancer incidence among the elderly : a prospective study.
A cohort of 11,580 residents of a retirement community initially free from cancer were followed from 1981 to 1989.
A total of 1,335 incident cancer cases were diagnosed during the period.
Relative risks of cancer were calculated for baseline consumption of vegetables, fruits, beta-carotene, dietary vitamin C, and vitamin supplements.
After adjustment for age and smoking, no evidence of a protective effect was found for any of the dietary variables in men.
However, an inverse association was observed between vitamin C supplement use and bladder cancer risk.
