Diet and physical activity in the etiology of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), major NHL subtypes and multiple myeloma: a prospective multi-cohort investigation

Research Type: Blood/Bone Marrow/Lymph Cancer

Project Description

Common blood-related cancers, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma, pose a substantial personal, public health and financial burden, but current knowledge is insufficient to guide prevention strategies. This project will examine whether adolescent and adult diet and adult physical activity levels are potential risk factors for these cancers through analyses of diet and physical activity levels of patients across multiple large ongoing studies. The researchers hope to determine the effect of diet and exercise on these cancers in order to determine whether or not improving diet and increasing physical activity can help to prevent their occurrence.
