  1. Food-group consumption and colon cancer in the Adelaide case-control study. I: Vegetables and fruit.

    Article - En anglais

    Previous epidemiologic studies have shown an inverse association between vegetable and fruit consumption and risk of colon cancer.

    Vegetables and fruit contain a large number of potentially anti-carcinogenic substances, thus lending biological plausibility to this association.

    We conducted a case-control study in Australia, comparing 220 persons with histologically confirmed incident adenocarcinoma of the colon with 438 age- and gender-matched controls.

    Cases were identified via the South Australian Cancer Registry (1979-80); controls were randomly selected from the electoral roll.
