Alcohol, physical activity and other risk factors for colorectal cancer: a prospective study.
The aetiology of colorectal cancer was studied in a cohort of 11,888 residents of a retirement community. After four and one-half years of follow-up, 58 male and 68 female incident colorectal cancersExpand
