Although the vast majority of lung cancer cases in women are caused by smoking, 9%-20% of cases occur in nonsmokers.
Previous epidemiologic research on the relationship between lung cancer and diet has shown that fruit and vegetable consumption may confer a protective effect against lung cancer, while a diet rich in cholesterol and fat may increase risk.
The purpose of this case-control study was to examine the effects of a broad range of dietary factors on the risk of lung cancer in a population of nonsmoking white women 30-84 years of age.
A telephone-administered questionnaire was used to determine and/or verify eligibility with regard to age, gender, race, and smoking status.
