- 1,088 subjects hospitalised for acute non-neoplastic diseases unrelated to tobacco or alcohol consumption.
- 460 confirmed incidents of laryngeal cancers were reported in participants.
- Dietary habits were investigated through a 78-item food frequency questionnaire.
- Investigators examined this association using data from a case-control study carried out between 1992 and 2000.
- The vitamins and fibre dietary pattern was inversely associated with laryngeal cancer, whereas the animal products and the animal unsaturated fatty acids patterns were directly associated with it.
- There was no significant association between the vegetable unsaturated fatty acids and the starch-rich patterns and laryngeal cancer risk.
- Yes (with confidence)
- Information obtained from participants referred to their diet in the 2 years before diagnosis. This presented issues with accurate recall on information.
