Association between beta-blocker use and fracture risk: the Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study.
INTRODUCTION In animal model, mice treated with beta-blockers (BB) had increased bone mass. In humans, high bone mass is associated with reduce fracture risk. The present study sought to test theExpand

Association between abdominal obesity and fracture risk: a prospective study.
CONTEXT Higher body weight is associated with greater bone mineral density (BMD) and lower fracture risk. However, the relationship between abdominal fat mass (aFM) and fracture risk is unclearExpand

Impact of Oxidative Stress Biomarkers and Carboxymethyllysine (an Advanced Glycation End Product) on Prostate Cancer: A Prospective Study.
OBJECTIVE Biomarkers of oxidative stress and advanced glycation end products (AGE) have been linked to the development of prostate cancer, but evidence from human studies is scarce or controversial.Expand

Association between beta-blockers and fracture risk: a Bayesian meta-analysis.
BACKGROUND The association between beta-blockers (BB) and fracture risk is controversial, due largely to conflicting findings from previous studies. The present study sought to evaluate the effect ofExpand

Age at attainment of peak bone mineral density and its associated factors: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2005-2014.
Osteoporosis is a major public health problem worldwide. Lower peak bone mineral density (BMD) in youth may be the single most important factor leading to the development of osteoporosis in theExpand

Associations of Iron Intake, Serum Iron and Serum Ferritin with Bone Mineral Density in Women: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 2005–2010
The relationship between iron and bone mineral density (BMD) is still poorly understood. We investigated the associations of iron intake, serum iron and serum ferritin with BMD. This cross-sectionalExpand
