We investigated sex-specific associations between childhood height, growth and adult type 2 diabetes, including potential influences of birthweight(More)

METHODS From the Copenhagen School Health Records Register, 292,827 individuals, born between 1930 and 1989, were followed in(More)
We previously showed that childhood height is positively associated with prostate cancer risk.

We investigated whether and to what extent childhood height has a direct effect on the risk of prostate cancer apart from adult height. We included 5,871(More)
