The association between serum total cholesterol and cancer mortality was investigated in a 28-year follow-up study of 3,091 Dutch civil servants aged 40-65 years and their spouses.
After adjustment for age, body mass index, and smoking, an inverse association between serum total cholesterol and all-cancer mortality was observed in men during the first 15 years of follow-up, excluding the first 2 years: The multivariate rate ratio of those in the lowest cholesterol quintile compared with those in the highest quintile was 2.1 (95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.1-4.0); this association was accounted for mainly by gastrointestinal cancers (RR=4.2, 95% Cl 1.4-12.9).
