Abstract Epidemiologists often try to estimate the effect of an exposure on change in health, a goal that applies to, at least partially, many situations. For example, they may study the effects: of education on deterioration of cognitive function in later life; of e-cigarette use cessation on change in weight; or of waist circumference on functional and physical decline. Here we focus on continuous outcomes and change between two time points, but our comments also are relevant to trajectories a...

Background Chronically higher inflammation, likely contributed to by dietary and lifestyle exposures, may increase risk for colorectal cancer (CRC). To address this, we investigated associations of novel dietary (DIS) and lifestyle (LIS) inflammation scores with incident CRC in the prospective National Institutes of Health-American Association of Retired Persons Diet and Health Study (N = 453 465). Methods The components of our previously developed and externally validated 19-component DIS and 4...

Abstract The electability of the candidates for the 2020 Democratic U.S. presidential nomination was frequently debated. In general, arguments regarding a given candidate’s electability often claim that they would affect the general election by changing the behavior of a certain subset of eligible voters. For example, is it more important electorally that a candidate drives turnout or swing voting? As lay consumers of political opinion, we were having difficulty weighing these claims from a stra...

Lower pre-diagnostic circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D)-considered the best marker of total vitamin D exposure-is associated with higher mortality risk among colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. However, it is unknown whether this association differs by the vitamin D-binding protein (GC) isoform Gc2 (encoded by GC rs4588*C>A, Thr436Lys), which may substantially affect vitamin D metabolism and modify associations of 25(OH)D with colorectal neoplasm risk. Pre-diagnostic 25(OH)D-mortality assoc...

: Higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with increased risk of pancreatic cancer in epidemiologic studies but BMI has usually been assessed at older ages, potentially underestimating the full impact of excess weight. We examined the association between BMI and pancreatic cancer mortality among 963,317 adults aged 30-89 years at enrollment into Cancer Prevention Study-II in 1982. During follow-up through 2014, 8,354 participants died of pancreatic cancer. Hazard ratios (HRs) per 5 BMI-units,...

Background: Cigarette smoking is causally linked to renal cell carcinoma (RCC). However, associations for individual RCC histologies are not well-described. Newly-available data on tobacco use from population-based cancer registries allow characterization of associations with individual RCC types. Methods: We analyzed data for 30,282 RCC cases from 8 states that collected tobacco use information for a National Program of Cancer Registry project. We compared the prevalence and adjusted prevalence...

BACKGROUND: FFQs are commonly used to assess dietary intake and it is important to evaluate their performance in the target population. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the reproducibility and relative validity of the Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) FFQ in estimating usual intake of 63 food groups and diet quality in accordance with the American Cancer Society dietary guidelines for cancer prevention. METHODS: A subset of participants from the CPS-3 (433 women, 244 men), 31-70 y of age, were included i...

BACKGROUND: When comparing mammography-screening participants and non-participants, estimates of reduction in breast-cancer mortality may be biased by poor baseline comparability. We used negative controls to detect uncontrolled confounding. METHODS: We designed a closed cohort of Danish women invited to a mammography-screening programme at age 50-52 years in Copenhagen or Funen from 1991 through 2001. We included women with a normal screening result in their first-invitation round. Based on the...
