Prospective study of plasma fatty acids and risk of prostate cancer.
Although some evidence suggests that dietary fat intake is related to prostate cancer, epidemiologic studies have been inconsistent.
Our purpose was to assess the association between plasma lipid levels, particularly linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids, and the development of prostate cancer.
In 1982, at the start of the Physicians' Health Study, 14 916 U.S. male physicians provided plasma samples, which were frozen at -82oC.
Data accumulated from a series of questionnaires were used to assess the intake of various foods.
