  1. Occupational physical activity and colon cancer risk in Turkey.

    Article - En anglais

    A case-control study of 107 colon cancer cases and 486 controls from an oncological clinic in Istanbul was conducted to examine the association between occupational physical activity and colon cancer in Turkey, where incidence of this disease is low.

    Only two of the four activity measures showed evidence of an increased colon cancer risk for sedentaryjobs (time spent sitting OR=1.5 and occupational energy expenditure OR=1.6); neither was statistically significant.
