    Objective: Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women accounting for 16% of cancer diagnosis.It is the second cause of cancer related deaths among women. Medical treatments such as chemotherapy can negatively interfere with nutritional status. The objective of this study was to assess the intake of proteins before, during and after chemotherapy treatment in a cohort of women with non-metastatic breast cancer (stage I, II) treated at the Valencian Institute of Oncology.

Relationship between meat consumption and greenhouse gas emissions

Ampere A Tseng

    Correlation formulas are developed to estimate the dietary and total greenhouse gas emissions (GHGEs) from the nineteen countries of the Group of Twenty (G20) and the world using personal meat consumption as the only input. Based on 47,381 dietary survey samples, quadratic formulas are developed to correlate the meat consumption with GHGEs from human dietary and total activities. The formula reliability is established by comparing formula predictions with peer-reviewed results.

Muna J Tahir, PhD; Michele R Forman, PhD*

    The global epidemic of overweight and obesity in pre-pregnancy and excessive gestation weight gain are challenging the nutrition community to formulate a literacy platform with guidelines for pregnancy weight gain.

Clemens Drenowatz*; Klaus Greier; Paul Klein

    Objective: Dietary habits play an important role in the prevention of chronic diseases as well as the development of children and adolescents. Changes in lifestyle patterns during the last several decades have contributed to less structured eating behaviors in youth which could also affect food choices. There remains, however, limited research on the association between eating habits and food consumption in Austrian youth.

A case-control study on heme/non-heme iron and breast cancer risk

Alvaro L Ronco*; Edison Espinosa; Juan M Calderón

    Background and purpose: Iron metabolism was found to be implicated in Breast Cancer (BC). Although dietary iron showed inconsistencies regarding its possible associations with BC risk, its source might be important. We have reported that an animal/plant ratio of dietary iron was directly associated to this risk. Based on estimates of heme and non-heme iron contents in representative foods, we carried out the present study, with the aim of more accurately reanalyzing dietary iron and its role on BC risk.

Longitudinal association between vitamin D intake and taking hypertension medications 20 Years Later: The CARDIA study

Kevin M Rice*; Chris Gillette; Cynthia B Jones; Eric R Blough

    Previous research has shown high rates of cardiovascular diseases in patients with low levels of vitamin D. This is a retrospective study that used the CARDIA dataset to examine the association between subject-reported vitamin-D intake and subjects taking antihypertensive medications after 20 years, beginning in 1985 through 2006. Multivariate logistic regressions were used to analyze the data. We found that almost 12% (n=150) of subjects reported taking at least one medication for hypertension in 2005-2006.
