Nut intake and 5-year changes in body weight and obesity risk in adults: results from the EPIC-PANACEA study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-07-21)
<p><i>Purpose</i>: There is inconsistent evidence regarding the relationship between higher intake of nuts, being an energy-dense food, and weight gain. We investigated the relationship between nut intake and changes in weight over 5 years.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: This study includes 373,293 men and women, 25–70 years old, recruited between 1992 and 2000 from 10 European countries in the European ...
Genetic variation in the ADIPOQ gene, adiponectin concentrations and risk of colorectal cancer: a Mendelian Randomization analysis using data from three large cohort studies
(Journal article; Manuskript; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-05-26)
Higher levels of circulating adiponectin have been related to lower risk of colorectal cancer in several prospective cohort studies, but it remains unclear whether this association may be causal. We aimed to improve causal inference in a Mendelian Randomization meta-analysis using nested case–control studies of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC, 623 cases, 623 ...
Prediagnostic calcium intake and lung cancer survival: A pooled analysis of 12 cohort studies
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-03-06)
<p><i>Background</i>: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. Little is known about whether prediagnostic nutritional factors may affect survival. We examined the associations of prediagnostic calcium intake from foods and/or supplements with lung cancer survival.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: The present analysis included 23,882 incident, primary lung cancer patients from 12 prospective cohort ...
Excess body weight, weight gain and obesity-related cancer risk in women in Norway: the Norwegian Women and Cancer study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-09-11)
<p><i>Background</i>: Excess body weight and weight gain have been reported to independently increase the risk of several cancers. There are few published studies in nationally representative populations of women on specific, ‘obesity-related’ cancers in relation to prior weight change and relevant confounders.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: Based on self-reported anthropometry, we prospectively assessed ...
