Associations of Organic Produce Consumption with Socioeconomic Status and the Local Food Environment: Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA)

Neighborhood characteristics, such as healthy food availability, have been associated with consumption of healthy food. Little is known about the influence of the local food environment on other dietary choices, such as the decision to consume organic food. We analyzed the associations between organic produce consumption and demographic, socioeconomic and neighborhood...

Recreational Physical Activity and Endometrial Cancer Risk

To investigate the association between recreational physical activity and endometrial cancer risk, a population-based case-control study was conducted in Washington State. The study included 822 incident cases of endometrial cancer diagnosed between 1985 and 1991 and 1,111 randomly selected population-based controls. Detailed information on recreational physical activities as...

Risk Factors for the Incidence of Endometrial Cancer according to the Aggressiveness of Disease

There is a wide range of aggressiveness of endometrial tumors, some being indolent and easily treated while others metastasize and prove fatal. The authors used data from three population-based, case-control studies to determine if etiologic factors differ for aggressive disease. Interview data were obtained from 1,304 female residents of western Washington State who were 45–74...

Community-based Study of the Transition to Adulthood for Adolescents with Psychiatric Disorder

This longitudinal study examines the transition to adulthood in a randomly sampled, community-based cohort of adolescents. The study compares young adult outcomes of 33 adolescents with and 148 adolescents without psychiatric disorder. After adjustment for differences in age, gender, and social class, adolescents with psychiatric disorder were 13.74 times less likely to complete...

Use of Recovery Biomarkers to Calibrate Nutrient Consumption Self-Reports in the Women's Health Initiative

Underreporting of energy consumption by self-report is well-recognized, but previous studies using recovery biomarkers have not been sufficiently large to establish whether participant characteristics predict misreporting. In 2004–2005, 544 participants in the Women's Health Initiative Dietary Modification Trial completed a doubly labeled water protocol (energy biomarker), 24...
