Dairy consumption, obesity, and the insulin resistance syndrome in young adults: The CARDIA study
TLDR
Dietary patterns characterized by increased dairy consumption have a strong inverse association with IRS among overweight adults and may reduce risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Poor survival associated with the BRAF V600E mutation in microsatellite-stable colon cancers.
TLDR
It is concluded that the BRAF V600E mutation in microsatellite-stable colon cancer is associated with a significantly poorer survival in stages 2 to 4 colon cancer but has no effect on the excellent prognosis of micros satellite-unstable tumors.
Dietary fiber, weight gain, and cardiovascular disease risk factors in young adults.
TLDR
Fiber consumption predicted insulin levels, weight gain, and other CVD risk factors more strongly than did total or saturated fat consumption, and high-fiber diets may protect against obesity and CVD by lowering insulin levels.
Evaluation of a large, population-based sample supports a CpG island methylator phenotype in colon cancer.
TLDR
The evaluation of a large, population-based sample of individuals with colon cancer strongly supports the biologic relevance of CIMP in colon cancer, however, the presence or absence of microsatellite instability has a major effect on the expression of this phenotype.
Eating Patterns and Risk of Colon Cancer
TLDR
The hypothesis that overall dietary intake pattern is associated with colon cancer, and that the dietary pattern associated with the greatest increase in risk is the one which typifies a Western-style diet is supported, is supported.
Associations of plant food, dairy product, and meat intakes with 15-y incidence of elevated blood pressure in young black and white adults: the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults
TLDR
Findings are consistent with a beneficial effect of plant food intake and an adverse effect of meat intake on blood pressure.
Pre-diagnosis body mass index, post-diagnosis weight change, and prognosis among women with early stage breast cancer
TLDR
Being obese before breast cancer diagnosis was associated with increased risk of recurrence and poorer survival, corroborating results from previous studies and appearing to be the strongest predictor of an adverse breast cancer prognosis.
Dairy consumption, obesity, and the insulin resistance syndrome in young adults: the CARDIA Study.
TLDR
Dietary patterns characterized by increased dairy consumption have a strong inverse association with IRS among overweight adults and may reduce risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Fast-food habits, weight gain, and insulin resistance (the CARDIA study): 15-year prospective analysis
TLDR
Fast-food consumption has strong positive associations with weight gain and insulin resistance, suggesting that fast food increases the risk of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Relationship of Ki-ras mutations in colon cancers to tumor location, stage, and survival: a population-based study.
TLDR
This population-based study demonstrates important relationships between Ki-ras mutations and stage, survival, tumor location, and gender.
