Nutritional epidemiology

We study the relationship between dietary factors and various chronic diseases, with special focus on breast cancer.

The relation between diet and cancer is very complex. We aim to increase the knowledge through our work in large epidemiological cohorts and in clinical studies.

Solid information on the nutrient content of food is essential for nutritional research. Our group has the main responsibility for the food and nutrient databases and software (KBS) developed and used at the Department of Nutrition.
