Dietary fat and sports activity as determinants for age at menarche.
A prospective study (1985-1991) was conducted to evaluate the role of nutrition, physical activity, and other life-style factors for the age at menarche, a known breast cancer risk factor.
In 1988-1989, a total of 261 girls, aged 8-15 years, from a nationwide representative nutrition and activity survey (1985-1988) responded additionally to a mailed questionnaire on personal maturation and anthropometric data, physical activity, and information about nutritional habits, measured by a short food-frequency questionnaire.
All girls without menarche at the time of questionnaire mailing were observed for 2 years or until the event of menarche.
At the end of the follow-up period, 79% of the girls had experienced menarche.
