  3. 3. Diet and postmenopausal breast cancer - With a focus on low-grade inflammation

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Joana Alves Dias; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]

    Abstract : Diet-breast cancer studies have shown that “healthy eating patterns” are associated with decreased risk whereas unhealthy patterns (especially those including alcohol) are associated with increased risk, particularly in postmenopausal women. The potential mechanisms behind the observed associations are still under investigation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diabetes mellitus and risk of prostate cancer - A focus on shared risk factors and survivor bias

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University
