The association between diet and the 25-year incidence of chronic nonspecific lung diseases (CNSLD) was studied in 793 middle-aged men in the town of Zutphen, the Netherlands, in 1960-1985.
During follow-up, 232 new cases of CNSLD were identified.
The incidence rate was 14. 1 per 1,000 person-years.
Habitual food intake was assessed by the cross-check dietary history method.
The intake of linoleic acid was positively associated with the incidence of CNSLD.
The relative risk was 1.55 (95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.11-2.16), comparing the highest with the lowest quartile of intake of linoleic acid, independent of potential confounders (age, cigarette smoking, body mass index, and energy intake).
