Previous epidemiologic studies have shown an inverse association between vegetable and fruit consumption and colon cancer risk; few of these studies have been prospective or have focused on women.
This report describes results from a prospective cohort study of 41,837 women aged 55-69 years who completed a 127-item food frequency questionnaire in 1986 and were monitored for cancer incidence for 5 years via the State Health Registry of Iowa.
After specific exclusion criteria were applied, 212 colon cancer cases and 167,447 person-years were available for analysis.
Intakes of 15 vegetable and fruit groups and dietary fiber were the major factors of interest.
