TLDR
Trends in mean BMI have recently flattened in northwestern Europe and the high-income English-speaking and Asia-Pacific regions for both sexes, southwestern Europe for boys, and central and Andean Latin America for girls, and by contrast, the rise in BMI has accelerated in east and south Asia forboth sexes, and southeast Asia for boys.

Meat, fish, and colorectal cancer risk: the European Prospective Investigation into cancer and nutrition.
TLDR
It is confirmed that colorectal cancer risk is positively associated with high consumption of red and processed meat and support an inverse association with fish intake. Expand
Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: a pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19·2 million participants
TLDR
The posterior probability of meeting the target of halting by 2025 the rise in obesity at its 2010 levels, if post-2000 trends continue, is calculated. Expand
Air pollution and lung cancer incidence in 17 European cohorts: prospective analyses from the European Study of Cohorts for Air Pollution Effects (ESCAPE).
TLDR
The meta-analyses showed a statistically significant association between risk for lung cancer and PM10 and PM2·5, and no association between lungcancer and nitrogen oxides concentration or traffic intensity on the nearest street. Expand
European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC): study populations and data collection
TLDR
The present paper provides a description of theEPIC study, with the aim of simplifying reference to it in future papers reporting substantive or methodological studies carried out in the EPIC cohort. Expand
Worldwide trends in blood pressure from 1975 to 2015: a pooled analysis of 1479 population-based measurement studies with 19·1 million participants
TLDR
The number of adults with raised blood pressure increased from 594 million in 1975 to 1·13 billion in 2015, with the increase largely in low-income and middle-income countries, and the contributions of changes in prevalence versus population growth and ageing to the increase. Expand
Body size and risk of colon and rectal cancer in the European Prospective Investigation Into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC).
TLDR
Waist circumference and WHR, indicators of abdominal obesity, were strongly associated with colon cancer risk in men and women in this population and may vary depending on HRT use in postmenopausal women; however, these findings require confirmation in future studies. Expand
Modified Mediterranean diet and survival: EPIC-elderly prospective cohort study
TLDR
The Mediterranean diet, modified so as to apply across Europe, was associated with increased survival among older people and no statistically significant evidence of heterogeneity was found. Expand
General and abdominal adiposity and risk of death in Europe.
TLDR
It is suggested that both general adiposity and abdominal adiposity are associated with the risk of death and support the use of waist circumference or waist-to-hip ratio in addition to BMI in assessing therisk of death. Expand
Variability of fish consumption within the 10 European countries participating in the European Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study
TLDR
Throughout Europe, substantial geographic variation exists in total fish intake, fish sub-groups and the number of types consumed, and the greatest variability in consumption by day of the week was found in the countries with the lowest fish intake. Expand
