Overweight, obesity, and mortality in a large prospective cohort of persons 50 to 71 years old.
Excess body weight during midlife, including overweight, is associated with an increased risk of death in men and women aged 50 to 71 years old in the National Institutes of Health-AARP cohort. Expand

- A. Cross, M. Leitzmann, M. Gail, A. Hollenbeck, A. Schatzkin, R. Sinha
- PLoS medicine
- 1 December 2007
Both red and processed meat intakes were positively associated with cancers of the colorectum and lung; furthermore, red meat intake was associated with an elevated risk for cancer of the esophagus and liver. Expand
Meta-analysis identifies 13 new loci associated with waist-hip ratio and reveals sexual dimorphism in the genetic basis of fat distribution
A meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies for WHR adjusted for body mass index provides evidence for multiple loci that modulate body fat distribution independent of overall adiposity and reveal strong gene-by-sex interactions. Expand
Physical activity and television watching in relation to risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus in men.
- F. Hu, M. Leitzmann, M. Stampfer, G. Colditz, W. Willett, E. Rimm
- Archives of internal medicine

Increasing physical activity is associated with a significant reduction in risk for diabetes, whereas a sedentary lifestyle indicated by prolonged TV watching is directly related to risk. Expand
Exercise type and intensity in relation to coronary heart disease in men.
Assessment of the amount, type, and intensity of physical activity in relation to risk of CHD among men found total physical activity, running, weight training, and walking were each associated with reduced CHD risk. Expand

New WHO 2020 guidelines on physical activity and sedentary behaviour reaffirm messages that some physical activity is better than none, that more physical Activity is better for optimal health outcomes and provide a new recommendation on reducing sedentary behaviours. Expand
Mediterranean dietary pattern and prediction of all-cause mortality in a US population: results from the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study.
There is strong evidence for a beneficial effect of higher conformity with the Mediterranean dietary pattern on risk of death from all causes, including deaths due to CVD and cancer, in a US population. Expand
Statin drugs and risk of advanced prostate cancer.
- E. Platz, M. Leitzmann, +4 authors E. Giovannucci
- Journal of the National Cancer Institute
- 20 December 2006
In this cohort of male health professionals, use of statin drugs was not associated with risk of prostate cancer overall but was associated with a reduced risk of advanced (especially metastatic or fatal) prostate cancer. Expand
Folate intake, alcohol use, and postmenopausal breast cancer risk in the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial.
- R. Stolzenberg-Solomon, Shih-chen Chang, +5 authors R. Ziegler
- The American journal of clinical nutrition
- 1 April 2006
The results do not support the hypothesis that high folate intake reduces breast cancer risk but suggest that a high intake, generally attributable to supplemental folic acid, may increase the risk in postmenopausal women, and confirm previous studies showing positive associations between moderate alcohol consumption and breast cancer. Expand
Manganese superoxide dismutase polymorphism, prediagnostic antioxidant status, and risk of clinical significant prostate cancer.
There is little overall association between MnSOD polymorphism and prostate cancer risk; however, this polymorphism significantly modified risk of prostate cancer associated with prediagnostic plasma antioxidants (P(interaction) > or = 0.05). Expand
