Title
Diet and Lung Cancer Risk
Summary
Globally, lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer, the most common cause of cancer death for men, and is the leading cause of cancer death in developed countries. Research into the role of diet and lung cancer suggests that diet represents a complicated set of exposures which often interact, and whose cumulative effect modifies health outcomes. We will assess diet using collected information. We aim to use Cox proportional Hazards regression to assess the association between nutrients and nutrients patterns and lung cancer risk.
Aims

Diet has been suggested to be important predictor for lung cancer. We aimed to test whether the diet habit is associated with risk of lung cancer.
