The effect of fruit and vegetable intake on the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) remains uncertain due to limited published evidence. We performed a matched case–control study to investigate the relationship between the intake of fruit and vegetables and the risk of NPC. Between July 2009 and March 2011, 600 (448 male, 152 female), NPC incident cases(More)
Traditional finite element (FE) analysis is computationally demanding. The computational time becomes prohibitively long when multiple loading and boundary conditions need to be considered such as in musculoskeletal movement simulations involving multiple joints and muscles. Presented in this study is an innovative approach that takes advantage of the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Many studies have shown a negative association between the consumption of soy products and the risk of some cancers, but little is known about the effect of soy consumption on nasopharyngeal carcinoma. We assessed the association between the consumption of soy products on nasopharyngeal carcinoma risk in Chinese individuals. (More)
Many studies show that dietary factors may affect the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). We examined the association between overall diet quality and NPC risk in a Chinese population. This case-control study included 600 NPC patients and 600 matched controls between 2009 and 2011 in Guangzhou, China. Habitual dietary intake and various covariates were(More)
Hydride generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HG-AFS) has been used for determination of hydride-forming elements because of its high sensitivity, simplicity, and low costs, but most of such work has been concentrated on single element analysis, and reports dealing with multielement determination by HG-nondispersive (ND)AFS are rare. In this work, a(More)
