  • NOTE: RRs were stratified by 5-year age at entry groups, sex, and country and adjusted for smoking and diabetes (where appropriate) and by sex-specific height quartile (weight, waist, hip, and waist/hip ratio only). Pinteraction is a test for interaction. (RR, 1.32, 95% CI 0.73-2.37 for women and RR, 1.74, 95% CI 1.00-1.31 among men per 10 cm increase).
