Abstract Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are chemicals used in the manufacture of consumer products. PFAS may act as endocrine disruptors, influencing metabolic pathways and weight-related outcomes. We analyzed associations of maternal serum pregnancy concentrations of PFAS with gestational weight gain (GWG). We used data from 905 women in a subsample of the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children. Women were routinely weighed in antenatal check-ups; absolute GWG was determined by subtr...

Importance: Pancreatic cancer rates in the United States have steadily increased since the early 2000’s despite declines in smoking. This increase is not easily explained by population increases in body mass index (BMI) given the relatively weak association between BMI and pancreatic cancer risk typically observed in epidemiologic studies. Most of these studies, however, assessed BMI in older adulthood, which may be less strongly associated with pancreatic cancer than BMI earlier in adult life. ...

Accumulating evidence suggests that excess body fatness is associated with an increased risk of aggressive prostate cancer. However, the roles of body mass index (BMI -kg/m 2 ), reported before and after diagnosis, and weight change in long-term prostate cancer survival remain unclear. Prospective data from men diagnosed with non-metastatic prostate cancer between 1992 and 2013 were obtained from the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. Weight was self-reported ...

Chronically higher inflammation may play a role in colorectal carcinogenesis. Contributors to inflammation likely include dietary and other lifestyle exposures, such as smoking, physical activity, alcohol intake, and obesity. We developed dietary (DIS) and lifestyle (LIS) inflammation scores to characterize the aggregate contributions of dietary and lifestyle exposures to systemic inflammation, and investigated associations of the scores with incident colorectal cancer (CRC) in the prospective N...
