    • Adiposity and Cancer Risk: A Life Course Approach 

      Song, Mingyang (2015-04-28)
      Obesity is a risk factor for several cancers, including colorectal cancer (CRC). I and my colleagues investigated adulthood weight change and body fat distribution and its change in relation to CRC risk in the Nurses’ ...
    • Body mass index and risk of colorectal cancer according to tumor lymphocytic infiltrate 

      Hanyuda, Akiko; Ogino, Shuji; Qian, Zhi Rong; Nakashima, Reiko; Song, Mingyang; Mima, Kosuke; Inamura, Kentaro; Masugi, Yohei; Wu, Kana; Meyerhardt, Jeffrey; Chan, Andrew; Fuchs, Charles S.; Giovannucci, Edward; Cao, Yin (Wiley, 2016-05-10)
      Higher body mass index (BMI), higher body adiposity, and obesity have been associated with increased risk of colorectal cancer. Evidence suggests that excess energy balance may influence systemic immune and inflammatory ...
    • A Framework for Microbiome Science in Public Health 

      Wilkinson, Jeremy E.; Franzosa, Eric; Everett, Christine; Li, Chengchen; Hu, Frank; Wirth, Dyann; Song, Mingyang; Chan, Andrew; Rimm, Eric; Garrett, Wendy; Huttenhower, Curtis (Nature / Springer, 2021-04-05)
      Human microbiome science has advanced rapidly and reached a scale at which basic biology, clinical translation, and population health are increasingly integrated. It is thus now possible for public health researchers, ...
    • Optimal dietary patterns for prevention of chronic disease 

      Giovannucci, Edward L; Wang, Peilu; Song, Mingyang; Eliassen, A.; Wang, Molin; Fung, Teresa; Clinton, Steven K.; Rimm, Eric; Hu, Frank; Willet, Walter C.; Tabung, Fred; Giovannucci, Edward (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2023-03)
      Multiple dietary patterns have been associated with different diseases; however, their comparability to improve overall health is yet to be determined. In 205,852 healthcare professionals from three US cohorts followed ...
    • Overview of the Microbiome Among Nurses study (Micro-N) as an example of prospective characterization of the microbiome within cohort studies 

      Song, Mingyang; Everett, Christine; Li, Chengchen; Wilkinson, Jeremy; Nguyen, Long; McIver, Lauren; Ivey, Kerry; Izard, Jacques; Palacios, Natalia; Eliassen, A.; Willett, Walter; Ascherio, Alberto; Sun, Qi; Tworoger, Shelley; Chang, Andrew; Garrett, Wendy; Huttenhower, Curtis; Rimm, Eric; Song, Mingyang (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2021-04-21)
      A lack of prospective studies has been a major barrier for assessing the role of the microbiome in human health and disease on a population-wide scale. To address this significant knowledge gap, we have launched a large-scale ...
    • Processed and Unprocessed Red Meat and Risk of Colorectal Cancer: Analysis by Tumor Location and Modification by Time 

      Bernstein, Adam M.; Song, Mingyang; Zhang, Xuehong; Pan, An; Wang, Molin; Fuchs, Charles S.; Le, Ngoan; Chan, Andrew T.; Willett, Walter C.; Ogino, Shuji; Giovannucci, Edward L.; Wu, Kana (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      Although the association between red meat consumption and colorectal cancer (CRC) is well established, the association across subsites of the colon and rectum remains uncertain, as does time of consumption in relation to ...
    • A Prospective Analysis of Meat Mutagens and Colorectal Cancer in the Nurses’ Health Study and Health Professionals Follow-up Study 

      Le, Ngoan Tran; Michels, Fernanda Alessandra Silva; Song, Mingyang; Zhang, Xuehong; Bernstein, Adam M.; Giovannucci, Edward L.; Fuchs, Charles S.; Ogino, Shuji; Chan, Andrew T.; Sinha, Rashmi; Willett, Walter C.; Wu, Kana (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2016)
      Background: Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) in cooked meats may play a role in colorectal cancer (CRC) development. Objectives: We aimed to prospectively examine the association between estimated intakes of HCAs and meat-derived ...
