Dietary carcinogens and the risk for glioma and meningioma in Germany.
A population-based case-control study was performed in South-West Germany in 1987/88 with 115 histological confirmed glioma and 81 meningioma cases and 418 randomly selected controls.
On the basis of information from a food-frequency questionnaire and questions on food preparation and food supply, the role of dietary carcinogens, in particular N-nitroso compounds or their precursors, on risk for glioma and meningioma were analyzed by multiple logistic regression.
Eleven food groups were investigated.
The intake of processed meat was significantly associated with an increased risk of glioma.
