  1. Relation of calcium, vitamin D, and dairy food intake to incidence of colon cancer among older women : the Iowa women's health study.

    Article - En anglais

    To investigate whether a high intake of calcium, vitamin D, or dairy products may protect against colon cancer, the authors analyzed data from a prospective cohort study of 35,216 Iowa women aged 55-69 years without a history of cancer who completed a dietary questionnaire in 1986.

    Through 1990, 212 incident cases of colon cancer were documented.

    Adjusted for age, intakes of calcium and vitamin D were significantly inversely associated with the risk of colon cancer.

    The relative risks for the highest quintile of intake as compared with the lowest were 0.52 (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.33-0.82) for calcium and 0.54 (95% CI 0.35-0.84) for vitamin D.
