Description:

The Swedish Mammography Cohort (SMC) is a large population-based cohort of over 60,000 women in the counties of Uppsala and Västmanland which is performed by the National Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet . The general aim is to assess relationships between a number of modifiable factors (diet, vitamin supplement use, physical activity, smoking, alcohol, body weight, other anthropometric measures etc.) and the occurrence of several major chronic diseases. All women born 1914-1948 who were residing in Västmanland and Uppsala County and in the years 1987-1990 received an invitation to participate in a mammography screening programme were asked to answer a questionnaire about diet and lifestyle. Approximately 66,000 women answered the questionnaire. In the autumn 1997, a second survey was sent to these women to update the information about their eating habits. The study examine associations of environmental/modifiable risk factors with several cancer sites (e.g., breast, colon, rectum, endometrium, ovary, and renal cell cancer), myocardial infarction, stroke, osteoporos
