  1. Preserved foods and nasopharyngeal carcinoma : a case-control study among Singapore chinese.

    Article - En anglais

    The association between the consumption of preserved foods in infancy, childhood and adulthood and the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma was investigated in a case-control study among Singapore Chinese : 200 cases (73% male) were compared with 406 hospital controls (71% male).

    Significantly increased risks were observed in association with frequent adult consumption of salted soy beans (OR 7.3 for consumption 4 or more times per week, compared with never), canned pickled vegetables (p=0.01 ; OR 4.5 for 4 or more times per week), « sze chuan chye », a salted Chinese tuber, (OR 2.4 for 4 or more times per month) and « kiam chye », salted mustard greens (OR 2.7 for 4 or more times per week).
