General and abdominal adiposity and risk of death in Europe.
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.
Association between pre-diagnostic circulating vitamin D concentration and risk of colorectal cancer in European populations:a nested case-control study
The results of this large observational study indicate a strong inverse association between levels of pre-diagnostic 25-(OH)D concentration and risk of colorectal cancer in western European populations.
Meat, eggs, dairy products, and risk of breast cancer in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) cohort.
No consistent association was found between breast cancer risk and the consumption of any of the food groups under study, when analyzed by both categorical and continuous exposure variable models.
Metabolic syndrome, plasma lipid, lipoprotein and glucose levels, and endometrial cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC).
It is suggested that metabolic abnormalities and obesity may act synergistically to increase endometrial cancer risk.
Blood lipid and lipoprotein concentrations and colorectal cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition
Findings show that high concentrations of serum HDL are associated with a decreased risk of colon cancer, and the mechanism behind this association needs further elucidation.
Fruit and vegetable intake and overall cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC).

A very small inverse association between intake of total fruits and vegetables and cancer risk was observed in this study, and caution should be applied in their interpretation.
Fluid intake and the risk of urothelial cell carcinomas in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)
Results from previous studies investigating the association between fluid intake and urothelial cell carcinomas (UCC) are inconsistent. We evaluated this association among 233,236 subjects in the…
Dietary Fibre Intake and Risks of Cancers of the Colon and Rectum in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)
The results strengthen the evidence for the role of high dietary fibre intake in colorectal cancer prevention and the association between total dietary fibre and risk of coloreCTal cancer risk did not differ by age, sex, or anthropometric, lifestyle, and dietary variables.
Discovery of common and rare genetic risk variants for colorectal cancer
Genome-wide association analyses based on whole-genome sequencing and imputation identify 40 new risk variants for colorectal cancer, including a strongly protective low-frequency variant at CHD1 and loci implicating signaling and immune function in disease etiology.
Obesity, inflammatory markers, and endometrial cancer risk: a prospective case–control study
Examination of the associations of C-reactive protein, interleukin 6, and IL1 receptor antagonist with endometrial cancer risk provided epidemiological evidence that chronic inflammation might mediate the association between obesity and endometricrial cancer and that endometrian carcinogenesis could be promoted by an inflammatory milieu.
