Previous epidemiological studies have shown an inverse association between vegetable and fruit consumption and lung cancer risk; few of these studies have been prospective or have focused upon women.
In 1986, we assessed food intake in 41,837 Iowa women, aged 55 to 69 yr, with a mailed 127-item food frequency questionnaire.
After 4 gears of follow-up, 179 incident cases of lung cancer were identified via the Iowa Surveillance, Epidemiologg, and End Results cancer registry.
After specific exclusion criteria were applied, a nested case-control comparison of 138 cases with 2,814 randomly selected noncases was undertaken.
