The relation between obesity and adenomatous polyps of the sigmoid colon was investigated in male self-defense officials who received a retirement health examination at three hospitals of the Self-Defense Forces in Japan between January 1991 and December 1992.
Body - mass index (BMI) and waist-hip circumference ratio (WHR) were used as indices of obesity.
A total of 228 adenoma cases and 1484 controls with normal sigmoidoscopy were identified in 2228 men : cases having small adenomas (<5 mm in diameter) and those with large adenomas (5 mm or greater) numbered 115 and 102, respectively.
Smoking, alcohol use, physical activity, rank, and hospital were controlled for by multiple logistic regression analysis.
