Research description

My research is mainly focused on identifying modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease and cancer using data from large prospective cohort studies and by Mendelian randomization analysis. Some selected research highlights are presented below.

 

Soft drinks and high-glycemic load diets linked to risk of gallbladder cancer

Available evidence indicates that elevated blood glucose levels and insulin resistance may be implicated in gallbladder cancer. Consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and diets with high glycemic load raise blood glucose and insulin levels and might therefore increase the risk of gallbladder cancer. We evaluated this hypothesis in a prospective study of 76 000 Swedish adults who were followed up for an average of 13.3 years. Our results showed that women and men with high consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, had an over 2-fold higher risk of gallbladder cancer compared with non-consumers of sweetened beverages. Moreover, a high-glycemic load diet was associated with a similar increase in gallbladder cancer risk.

A healthy lifestyle may substantially reduce the risk of stroke

We examined the association of a healthy lifestyle, defined as a healthy diet, not smoking, physically active, healthy body weight, and alcohol consumption in moderation, with risk of stroke among 32 000 women in the Swedish Mammography Cohort and among 35 000 men in the Cohort of Swedish Men. Our results showed that women and men with a healthy lifestyle were 54% to 69% less likely to have a stroke. Similar findings were observed in those at higher risk of stroke because of other cardiovascular diseases or its risk factors.

Chocolate consumption is inversely associated with risk of stroke and heart disease

Chocolate is a rich source of flavonoids, which are potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds. Evidence from randomized trials indicates beneficial effects of chocolate and cocoa flavonoids on blood pressure, endothelial function, insulin sensitivity and lipoprotein concentrations. We investigated the association between chocolate consumption and incidence of stroke and myocardial infarction among ~70 000 women and men in the Swedish Mammography Cohort and the Cohort of Swedish Men. After adjustment for other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, results from these cohorts showed that moderate chocolate consumption was associated with an approximately 20% lower risk of stroke and a 13% lower risk of myocardial infarction. In complementary meta-analyses, combining the findings from the two Swedish cohorts and from previously published cohort studies, we observed that chocolate consumption was associated with an overall 19% and 10% reduced risk of stroke and ischemic heart disease, respectively.

Beneficial health effects of coffee drinking

In the past, the consumption of coffee was generally considered as being detrimental to health. However, a number of recently published studies have reported reduction in risk of several diseases (e.g., type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease and dementia) in coffee drinkers. In prospective cohorts and meta-analyses, we have observed that moderate coffee consumption is associated with lower risk of stroke, hepatocellular carcinoma, and overall mortality, in particular mortality from cardiovascular disease. In a meta-analysis of prospective studies, we found that daily consumption of 3 cups of coffee was associated with a 21% reduction in cardiovascular disease mortality.

Alcohol consumption increases the risk of atrial fibrillation

While light to moderate alcohol consumption is associated with a reduced risk of ischemic heart disease and ischemic stroke in observational studies, alcohol consumption appears to be a risk factor for atrial fibrillation, an irregular and often abnormally fast heartbeat that can lead to stroke, heart failure, and dementia. In a prospective study of 79 000 Swedish adults, we observed a positive relation between alcohol consumption and risk of atrial fibrillation. Compared with drinkers of less than one drink per week, the risk of atrial fibrillation was increased by 14% for those who consumed 15 to 21 drinks per week and by 39% for those who consumed more than 21 drinks per week. In a complementary meta-analysis, combining the results from our Swedish study with six similar prospective studies, we found that the risk for atrial fibrillation increased by 8% with each additional drink per day.

Processed meat consumption linked to multiple diseases

We have observed in a series of studies that high consumption of red meat, in particular processed red meat, is associated with increased risk of stroke and gastrointestinal cancers, including colorectal, stomach, and pancreatic cancer, as well as with survival and overall mortality. In a meta-analysis of prospective studies, we observed that daily consumption of 60 g (about 2 servings) of processed meat was associated with a 22% increase in overall mortality.
