Mortality results from a randomized prostate-cancer screening trial.
After 7 to 10 years of follow-up, the rate of death from prostate cancer was very low and did not differ significantly between the two study groups.
Global estimates of mortality associated with long-term exposure to outdoor fine particulate matter

PM2.5 exposure may be related to additional causes of death than the five considered by the GBD and that incorporation of risk information from other, nonoutdoor, particle sources leads to underestimation of disease burden, especially at higher concentrations.

Prostate cancer screening in the randomized Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial: mortality results after 13 years of follow-up.
There was no evidence of a mortality benefit for organized annual screening in the PLCO trial compared with opportunistic screening, which forms part of usual care, and there was no apparent interaction with age, baseline comorbidity, or pretrial PSA testing.
Effect of screening on ovarian cancer mortality: the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Randomized Controlled Trial.
Among women in the general US population, simultaneous screening with CA-125 and transvaginal ultrasound compared with usual care did not reduce ovarian cancer mortality.
Alcohol Intake and Colorectal Cancer: A Pooled Analysis of 8 Cohort Studies
A pooled analysis of 8 observational studies showed a small absolute increase in colorectal cancer risk with alcohol consumption of 30 g/d or greater (equivalent to 150 mL of wine), with the greatest risk among people who consumed 45 g/D or greater.
Colorectal-cancer incidence and mortality with screening flexible sigmoidoscopy.
Screening with flexible sigmoidoscopy was associated with a significant decrease in colorectal-cancer incidence (in both the distal and proximal colon) and mortality (distal colon only).
Type I and II endometrial cancers: have they different risk factors?
The results of this pooled analysis suggest that the two endometrial cancer types share many common etiologic factors, and the etiology of type II tumors may, therefore, not be completely estrogen independent, as previously believed.

Annual mammography in women aged 40-59 does not reduce mortality from breast cancer beyond that of physical examination or usual care when adjuvant therapy for breast cancer is freely available.
Dairy foods, calcium, and colorectal cancer: a pooled analysis of 10 cohort studies.
Higher consumption of milk and calcium is associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer, and this results were consistent across studies and sex.
