Intakes of vitamin A, dietary antioxidants, and other dietary components were examined for their relation to the risk of malignant melanoma among 234 cases and 248 controls in three counties of western Washington State.
Cases were drawn from persons diagnosed with melanoma between 1984 and 1987 and identified through a Seattle-Puget Sound cancer registry.
Population controls were identified through random digit dialing and were randomly selected, stratified by age, sex, and county.
Subjects completed a telephone interview and a mailed food frequency questionnaire asking for information on diet, demographic factors, and factors known to be associated with melanoma.
