The association between calcium intake and gastrointestinal cancer mortality was investigated in a 28-year follow-up study.
Data were obtained from a general health examination in 1953-1954 among Dutch civil servants and their spouses, aged 40 to 65 years.
Information from 2,591 participants was used for this study.
Risk analyses were performed using logistic regression models with the highest quintile of calcium intake as reference.
No statistically significant relation between calcium intake and gastrointestinal cancer mortality is observed, although the risk estimate for women with the lowest calcium intake is substantial.
Odds ratios (OR) were adjusted for age, energy intake and dietary fiber.
