Air Pollution and Incidence of Hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus in Black Women Living in Los Angeles
TLDR
Exposure to air pollutants, especially traffic-related pollutants, may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus and possibly of hypertension. Expand
General and abdominal obesity and risk of death among black women.
TLDR
The risk of death from any cause among black women increased with an increasing BMI of 25.0 or higher, which is similar to the pattern observed among whites, and waist circumference appeared to be associated with an increased risk ofdeath only among nonobese women. Expand
Statin Use and the Risk of 10 Cancers
TLDR
The present data do not support either positive or negative associations between statin use and the occurrence of 10 cancer types, and cancer incidence should continue to be monitored among statin users. Expand
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and risk of digestive cancers at sites other than the large bowel.
TLDR
Regular continuing nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use has been associated with a reduction in risk of large bowel cancer in many studies, and data suggest that regular continuing NSAID use may be associated with reduced risk of stomach cancer. Expand
Use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs and risk of breast cancer: the Case-Control Surveillance Study revisited.
TLDR
Long-term regular use of NSAIDs was associated with decreased risk of breast cancer, and the type of NSAID used or the hormone receptor status of the tumor did not modify the effect. Expand
Racism, segregation, and risk of obesity in the Black Women's Health Study.
TLDR
It is suggested that racism contributes to the higher incidence of obesity among African American women. Expand
Antidepressant use and colorectal cancer risk
TLDR
This study assessed the association of colorectal cancer risk with SSRI and tricyclic antidepressant use in a hospital‐based Case Control Surveillance Study. Expand
Neighborhood Socioeconomic Status in Relation to 10‐Year Weight Gain in the Black Women's Health Study
TLDR
It is suggested that lower neighborhood SES contributes to overweight and obesity in African‐American women. Expand
Reproductive factors and the risk of brain tumors: A population‐based study in Sweden
TLDR
The present results do not support the notion that hormonal changes, or other physiological changes induced by childbearing, play an important role in the development of brain tumors. Expand
Menarche, menopause, and breast cancer risk: individual participant meta-analysis, including 118 964 women with breast cancer from 117 epidemiological studies
TLDR
The effects of menarche and menopause on breast cancer risk might not be acting merely by lengthening women's total number of reproductive years, and endogenous ovarian hormones are more relevant for oestrogen receptor-positive disease than for ostrogens receptor-negative disease and for lobular than for ductal tumours.
