  1. Vegetables, fruit, and lung cancer in the Iowa women's health study.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
