Women's lifestyle and health
Women's lifestyle and health is a large study focusing on health outcomes such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and some chronic diseases.
Several analyses are being performed on different exposures, such as oral contraceptives, BMI, changes in body size and shape, UV radiation exposure, alcohol consumption, smoking, and risk of different cancer sites and overall mortality. The data management and analysis of the follow-up questionnaire is ongoing.
