Epidemiologic evidence of the protective effect of fruit and vegetables on cancer risk.
Prospective studies provide weaker evidence than case-control studies of the association of fruit and vegetable consumption with reduced cancer risk, and the association may have been underestimated in prospective studies because of the combined effects of imprecise dietary measurements and limited variability of dietary intakes within each cohort.

Dietary fibre in food and protection against colorectal cancer in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC): an observational study
Dietary fibre in foods was inversely related to incidence of large bowel cancer, with the protective effect being greatest for the left side of the colon, and least for the rectum. Expand

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
A susceptibility locus for lung cancer maps to nicotinic acetylcholine receptor subunit genes on 15q25
The results provide compelling evidence of a locus at 15q25 predisposing to lung cancer, and reinforce interest in nicotinic acetylcholine receptors as potential disease candidates and chemopreventative targets. Expand
The EPIC Project: rationale and study design. European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition.
EPIC is a multi-centre prospective cohort study designed to investigate the relation between diet, nutritional and metabolic characteristics, various lifestyle factors and the risk of cancer in middle-aged men and women. 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
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
Worldwide trends in blood pressure from 1975 to 2015: a pooled analysis of 1479 population-based measurement studies with 19·1 million participants
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
European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC): study populations and data collection
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

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
