Consumption of dairy products and colorectal cancer in the European prospective investigation into cancer and nutrition (EPIC)
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
Background: Prospective studies have consistently reported lower colorectal cancer risks associated with higher intakes of total dairy products, total milk and dietary calcium. However, less is known about whether the inverse associations vary for individual dairy products with differing fat contents. Materials and Methods: In the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), ...
What characterises women who eat potatoes? A cross-sectional study among 74,208 women in the Norwegian Women and Cancer cohort
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-19)
<p>Background: Studies of potato consumption have shown that age, region, socioeconomic status, and household structure are important determinants. <p>Objective: This study aims to map which factors influence potato consumption among women in the Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC) study. <p>Design: A cross-sectional study using a postal questionnaire among 74,208 NOWAC participants aged ...
Diet quality scores and prediction of all-cause, cardiovascular and cancer mortality in a pan-european cohort study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-07-13)
Scores of overall diet quality have received increasing attention in relation to disease aetiol- ogy; however, their value in risk prediction has been little examined. The objective was to assess and compare the association and predictive performance of 10 diet quality scores on 10-year risk of all-cause, CVD and cancer mortality in 451,256 healthy participants to the European Prospective ...
Consumption of Whole-Grain Bread and Risk of Colorectal Cancer among Norwegian Women (the NOWAC Study)
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-01-13)
There is evidence that consumption of foods containing dietary fiber decreases the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). Whole grains contain dietary fiber, as well as a range of micronutrients and bioactive compounds, but the association between the consumption of whole grains and the risk of CRC remains less studied. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between whole-grain ...

Fiber intake modulates the association of alcohol intake with breast cancer
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-09-06)
Alcohol intake has been related to an increased risk of breast cancer (BC) while dietary fiber intake has been inversely associated to BC risk. A beneficial effect of fibers on ethanol carcinogenesis through their impact on estrogen levels is still controversial. We investigated the role of dietary fiber as a modifying factor of the association of alcohol and BC using data from the European Prospective ...
Milk and risk of colorectal, colon and rectal cancer in the Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC) Cohort Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-17)
According to World Cancer Research Fund International/American Institute for Cancer Research, it is ‘probable’ that dairy products decrease the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). However, meta-analyses restricted to women have not shown associations between milk intake and risk of CRC. The aim of this study was to examine the association between milk intake and risk of CRC, colon cancer and rectal ...
