In 1986 a prospective cohort study on diet and cancer was started in the Netherlands among 62,573 women ages 55-69 years.
Baseline information on diet and other risk factors was collected with a questionnaire.
Cancer incidence was measured by record linkage with cancer registries and a pathology register.
A case-cohort approach was used, in which the accumulated person time in the cohort was estimated by follow-up of a randomly selected subcohort (n=1812).
After 3.3 years of follow-up, 471 incident breast cancer cases were available for analysis.
Questionnaire data for these cases and the 1716 female subcohort members without a history of cancer other than skin cancer were analyzed.
