Purpose Dietary factors may influence colorectal cancer (CRC) survival through effects on inflammation. We examined the association between post-CRC diagnosis inflammatory potential of diet and all-cause and cancer-specific mortality in the Women’s Health Initiative.

Introduction Primary care providers, using brief counseling, can help patients increase motivation to initiate or maintain weight loss, improve diet, and increase physical activity. However, no prior studies have examined the degree to which primary care preceptors, who are responsible for mentoring medical students during their core clerkships, provide clinical teaching regarding weight management counseling. Methods Medical students enrolled in eight U.S. medical schools who had finished their...

Obesity is a prevalent disease that is often a source of stigmatization. Weight bias has been documented in healthcare settings and associated with less physician time spent with patients, less patient-centered communication, and more patient delay or withdrawal from care. Weight bias is widespread in society and the healthcare field, including among medical students. This study examined the hypothesis that weight bias in medical students is related to negative attitudes toward weight management...

ABSTRACTLaboratory studies indicate that melatonin has beneficial vascular effects. However, epidemiologic studies on the relationship between endogenous levels of melatonin and hypertension in humans are limited. We examined the association of quartile levels of 6-sulfatoxymelatonin (aMT6s) in first morning urines with prevalent and incident hypertension in 777 postmenopausal women who were originally part of a case–control study of breast cancer nested in the Women’s Health Initiative Observat...

Objectives: Older female smokers are highly vulnerable, yet little is known about their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors regarding smoking cessation. Methods: Southeast region Women’s Health Initiative participants identified as smokers on at least one prior assessment were surveyed in 2012 regarding current tobacco use. Results: Most of these current and former smokers (N = 409, 63% response) were non-Hispanic White (81.7%) and had some college (80%), with mean age of 75.1 years. Current smoki...

Background: Inflammation is important in chronic disease and can be modulated by dietary exposures. Our aim was to examine whether the inflammatory potential of diet after cancer diagnosis, assessed using the dietary inflammatory index (DII), is associated with all-cause and cause-specific mortality among women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in the Women9s Health Initiative (WHI). Methods: Our analytic cohort included 2,150 postmenopausal women, ages 50 to 79 years at baseline, who develo...
