Dietary iron and haem iron intake and risk of endometrial cancer: a prospective cohort study.
Br J Cancer. 2008 Jan 15; 98(1):194-8.BJ

Abstract

We used data from a large cohort study of Canadian women to assess the association of meat intake and dietary intake of iron and haem iron with risk of endometrial cancer. Among 34,148 women with an intact uterus at baseline and followed for a mean of 16.4 years, we identified 426 incident endometrial cancer cases. Data from a food frequency questionnaire administered at baseline were used to calculate intake of all meats, red meat, total dietary iron, iron from meat, haem iron, and non-haem iron. Analyses were carried out using Cox proportional hazards models with adjustment for known risk factors and covariates. We found no association of intake of meat or any of the dietary iron-related variables with risk of endometrial cancer.
