Fat intake was examined in relation to risk of breast cancer using dietary questionnaires administered both before and after the diagnosis of breast cancer.
Among the Nurses' Health Study cohort members who completed a food frequency questionnaire and were free of cancer in 1986, 398 were diagnosed with breast cancer during 2 years of follow-up.
These cases and 798 age-matched controls (cohort members who also completed a dietary questionnaire in 1986 but did not develop breast cancer) were sent another food frequency questionnaire in 1989 inquiring about their diet in 1985.
Three hundred cases and 602 controls responded to the second questionnaire.
