Abstract Purpose Severe periodontal disease and edentulism have been previously reported to be significantly associated with cancer risk and mortality, including in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study (2018); however, complex sources of confounding by socioeconomic status (SES), and characteristics correlated with SES, could have been present in earlier analyses. Methods To capture lifecourse SES and its correlates, we generated a propensity score and included it, along with oth...

Physical activity has been associated with lower risks of breast and colorectal cancer in epidemiological studies; however, it is unknown if these associations are causal or confounded. In two-sample Mendelian randomization analyses, using summary genetic data from the UK Biobank and GWA consortia, we found that a one standard deviation increment in average acceleration was associated with lower risks of breast cancer (odds ratio [OR]: 0.59, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.42 to 0.84, P-value=0....

Purpose Previous studies have reported that taller people have an increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). We examined the association of two height components—leg length and sitting height—with CRC risk in 14,532 individuals aged 45–64 years in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities study.
