Perfluorinated Chemicals and Fetal Growth: A Study within the Danish National Birth Cohort
The nationwide cohort data suggest an inverse association between maternal plasma PFOA levels and birth weight, which may be of potential public health concern because of widespread exposure to these chemicals. Expand
A prospective study of obesity and cancer risk (Sweden)
Obesity is associated with more forms of cancer than previously reported and the association of obesity with risk of breast, prostate and pancreas cancers was modified by age. Expand
Pancreatitis and the risk of pancreatic cancer.
Obesity and risk for chronic renal failure.
Obesity seems to be an important-and potentially preventable-risk factor for CRF, and the strongest association was with diabetic nephropathy, but two- to three-fold risk elevations were observed for all major subtypes of CRF. Expand
Maternal levels of perfluorinated chemicals and subfecundity.
It is suggested that PFOA and PFOS exposure at plasma levels seen in the general population may reduce fecundity; such exposure levels are common in developed countries. Expand
International renal cell cancer study. VII. role of diet
The findings indicate an important role of nutrition in the development of RCC and the apparent positive association of energy intake with risk of R CC needs further investigation in a prospective cohort study to exclude the possible impact of differences in recall. Expand
The epidemiology of renal cell carcinoma.
A further reduction in cigarette smoking, and a decrease in the rates of obesity and hypertension would likely moderate the increasing incidence of renal cell cancer. Expand
Incidence of cancer among patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
The reduced risk for colorectal cancer in patients with RA is consistent with previous studies of RA patients and with reports which state that use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may protect against the development of large bowel cancers. Expand
Helicobacter pylori infection and gastric atrophy: risk of adenocarcinoma and squamous-cell carcinoma of the esophagus and adenocarcinoma of the gastric cardia.
Infection with H. pylori may reduce the risk of esophageal adenocarcinoma, but it is unlikely to do so by atrophy-reduced acidity, and infection with CagA-positive strains of H. Expand
Cellular telephones and cancer--a nationwide cohort study in Denmark.
The results of this investigation, the first nationwide cancer incidence study of cellular phone users, do not support the hypothesis of an association between use of these telephones and tumors of the brain or salivary gland, leukemia, or other cancers. Expand
