A population-based case-control study was conducted from 1985 to 1989 in western Washington State to assess the relation between nutrients and the incidence of colon cancer in men and women aged 30-62.
A food frequency questionnaire was used to document the usual diet 7 years before diagnosis for 424 cases and at a similar time for 414 controls.
Alcohol consumption was strongly related to the risk of colon cancer in both men and women, with age-adjusted odds ratios (ORs) of colon cancer=1.0, 1.9, 1.7, and 2.6 for 0, <10, 10-29, and >=30 g/day intake for men and adjusted odds ratios=1.0, 1.3, 1.8, and 2.5 for the same categories for women.
