BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES Dairy foods contain various nutrients that may affect health. We investigated whether intake of dairy products or related nutrients is associated with mortality due to cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer and all causes. SUBJECTS/METHODS We carried out a 16-year prospective study among a community-based sample of 1529 adult(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE Folates are essential for DNA synthesis and methylation, and thus may have a role in carcinogenesis. Limited evidence suggests folate-containing foods might protect against some cancers and may partially mitigate the increased risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol intake, but there is little information regarding ovarian cancer.(More)
Epidemiological studies investigating the association between dietary intake and oesophageal cancer have mostly focused on nutrients and food groups instead of dietary patterns. We conducted a population-based case-control study, which included 365 oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC), 426 oesophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma (OGJAC) and 303 oesophageal(More)
Folate plays a key role in DNA synthesis and methylation. Limited evidence suggests high intake may reduce risks of esophageal cancer overall; however, associations with esophageal cancer subtypes and Barrett's esophagus (BE), a precancerous lesion, remain unexplored. We evaluated the relation between intake of folate, B vitamins, and methyl-group donors(More)
Eating behaviors, such as the timing, speed of eating, and frequently consuming hot drinks, fried, spicy, or barbecued foods may be associated with increased risks of esophageal cancer. We analyzed data from a population-based case–control study to examine whether eating behaviors are associated with risk of esophageal cancer. Self-administered(More)
BACKGROUND Our objective was to determine the relationship between dietary glycemic load (GL), glycemic index (GI), carbohydrate intake, and ovarian cancer risk in a population-based case-control study. PATIENTS AND METHODS A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect data on demographic and lifestyle factors, and a food frequency questionnaire(More)
BACKGROUND The potential role of vitamin D in the aetiology of pancreatic cancer is unclear, with recent studies suggesting both positive and negative associations. PATIENTS AND METHODS We used data from nine case-control studies from the International Pancreatic Cancer Case-Control Consortium (PanC4) to examine associations between pancreatic cancer risk(More)
Several components of the metabolic syndrome, particularly diabetes and CVD, are known to be oxidative stress-related conditions and there is research to suggest that antioxidant nutrients may play a protective role in these conditions. Carotenoids are compounds derived primarily from plants and several have been shown to be potent antioxidant nutrients.(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence for a role of individual foods and nutrients in the causation of ovarian cancer is inconclusive. To date, few studies have considered dietary patterns in relation to ovarian cancer risk. OBJECTIVE We conducted a population-based case-control study in Australia to identify and analyze dietary patterns in relation to ovarian cancer risk.(More)
Existing Australian diet quality indices have assumed links to health outcomes but their validity for this has not been reported. We extend the features of existing indices for Australian adults by constructing a new diet quality index (Aussie-DQI) using the national dietary guidelines linked to the Australia National Health Priority Areas.
