This investigation described the effects of exercise, walking, and cycling for transportation, as well as the effect of overall nonexercise physical activity, on mortality in the Shanghai Women's Health Study (1997-2004). Women without heart disease, stroke, or cancer were followed for an average of 5.7 years (n = 67,143), and there were 1,091 deaths from all causes, 537 deaths from cancer, and 251 deaths from cardiovascular diseases. Information about physical activity and relevant covariates w...

Results We documented 1973 incident cases of diabetes during 326625 person-years of follow-up. LPA and daily living physical activity (DPA) were associated with a moderately reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. The relative risk for type 2 diabetes associated with LPA and DPA categories were 1.00, 0.89, 1.05, and 0.83, (P trend 5 0.12) and 1.00, 0.98, 0.95, and 0.88, (P trend 5 0.06) respectively. LPA was associated with lower risk of type 2 diabetes in employed participants (P trend 5 0.09) while D...

Objective To evaluate the association of environmental exposure to tobacco smoke from husbands and from work, as well as from family members in early life, with all cause mortality and mortality due to cancer or cardiovascular disease in Chinese women. Design Ongoing prospective cohort study in Shanghai, China. Participants Of 72 829 women who had never smoked, 65 180 women provided information on smoking by their husbands, and 66 520 women provided information on exposure to tobacco smoke at wo...

It has been increasingly recognized that dietary factors play a major role in the development of chronic diseases, including cancers and CVD. The identification of patterns of nutrient intake in populations with different disease incidence will be helpful in understanding the diet and disease association. The present report describes nutrient intake in 74810 Chinese women, aged between 40 and 70 years, who participated in a population-based cohort study in Shanghai from 1997 to 2000. A food freq...

Although cancer is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in most nations, the spectrum of cancer occurrence varies substantially worldwide. Most previous epidemiologic studies investigating cancer etiology were conducted in North American and western European countries that are relatively homogenous in terms of cancer spectrums and many lifestyle exposures. These limitations may have hindered these studies from evaluating some important etiologic hypotheses. From 1996 to 2000, the Shanghai Wo...

Background: Soy consumption has been shown to modulate bone turnover and increase bone mineral density in postmenopausal women. To our knowledge, no published studies have directly examined the association between soy consumption and risk of fracture. Methods:We examined the relationship between usual soy food consumption and fracture incidence in 24403 postmenopausal women who had no history of fracture orcancerandwererecruitedbetweenMarch1,1997,and May 23, 2000, in the Shanghai Women’s Health ...

Background: Several small-scale clinical trials have suggested a potential beneficial effect of short-term soy consumption on blood pressure (BP). Data are scanty on long-term effects of the usual intake of soy foods on BP in general populations. Objective: Our aim was to examine the association between usual intake of soy foods and BP. Design: The usual intake of soy foods was assessed at baseline, and BP was measured 2–3 y after the baseline survey among 45 694 participants of the Shanghai Wom...

Abstract Growing evidence suggests that exposure to environmental tobacco smoke may have deleterious cardiovascular effects. Few studies have investigated environmental tobacco smoke exposure in relation to stroke. The authors examined the association between smoking by husbands and stroke prevalence among women nonsmokers in Shanghai, China, where two thirds of men but few women smoke. They analyzed baseline survey data (1997-2000) from a population-based cohort study, the Shanghai Women's Heal...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the relationship between measures of central and overall obesity and risk of diabetes. DESIGN: Nested case–control study. SETTING: Shanghai, China. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 57 130 women were screened for diabetes at enrollment for the Shanghai Women's Health Study (SWHS), a population-based cohort study of Chinese women aged 40–70 y. In this study, 345 women diagnosed with diabetes and 2760 age-matched controls (eight controls per case), randomly selected from women who test...
