  • Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system use is associated with a decreased risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer, without increased risk of breast cancer. Results from the NOWAC Study 

    Jareid, Mie; Thalabard, Jean-Christophe; Aarflot, Morten; Bøvelstad, Hege Marie; Lund, Eiliv; Braaten, Tonje (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-02)
    <p><i>Objective</i>: Women with ovarian cancer have poor survival rates, which have proven difficult to improve; therefore primary prevention is important. The levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) prevents endometrial cancer, and recent studies suggested that it may also prevent ovarian cancer, but with a concurrent increased risk of breast cancer. We compared adjusted risks of ...

  • Coloring of the past via respondent’s current psychological state, mediation, and the association between childhood disadvantage and morbidity in adulthood 

    Sheikh, Mashhood Ahmed (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-31)
    <p><i>Objective</i>: Many researchers view retrospective reports with skepticism. Indeed, the observed association between retrospectively-reported childhood disadvantage (CD) and morbidity in adulthood has been criticized as an artefactual correlation driven by the psychological state of the respondent at the time of reporting (current psychological state). The aim of this study was to assess the ...
  • Variability in peripheral rewarming after cold stress among 255 healthy Norwegian army conscripts assessed by dynamic infrared thermography 

    Norheim, Arne Johan; Borud, Einar Kristian; Wilsgaard, Tom; DeWeerd, Louis; Mercer, James (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-16)

    Breastmilk covers all the nutritional needs of the infant the first months of life, with the exception of vitamin D. In addition, breastmilk has a number of protective properties. However, as humans are exposed to polluting chemicals through food, air, water and skin contact, breastmilk also contains contaminants. Taking the present-day levels of contaminants in Norwegian breastmilk and the long ...

The aim of the current study is to validate two different methods used to assess the intake of selected n-3 PUFAs as well as food sources of ...
  • Vi har efterhånden fundet vores egne ben som forældre: Forældreskab og sundhedspleje i spændingsfeltet mellem velfærdsstat og privatsfære 

    Haslund, Helle; Risør, Mette Bech (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018)
    Der er særligt gennem de sidste 50 år sket en intensivering af et børnecentreret forældre-skab, som i stigende omfang er orienteret mod børns sundhed og udvikling, hvor brug af ekspertråd er centralt. Præmature børn befinder sig i en forhøjet risiko for komplikationer relateret til sundhed, trivsel og udvikling, og de er ved fødslen oftest med forældrene ind-lagt gennem en periode på en hospitalsafdeling ...
