High circulating concentration of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and low circulating concentration of IGF binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) have been associated with increased risk for breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers. Building on previous work in the Multiethnic Cohort (MEC) showing significant differences in IGF-I levels across racial/ethnic groups, we investigated which lifestyle and dietary factors are associated with levels of IGF-I and IGFBP-3 in a random sample of 1,000 MEC… CONTINUE READING
