Title: Fluid intake and bladder cancer. A case control study.

Abstract: To examine the relation of the total intake of fluids and the types of beverages to the risk of bladder cancer, we conducted a hospital based case-control study with 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients and the same number of matched controls. Information of total fluid intake was derived from the reported frequency of consumption of the different types of beverages on the food frequency questionnaire. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed in statistical analysis. There was no statistically significant difference between the cases and the controls in total daily fluid intake. Multivariate logistic regression model showed consumption of: soda (OR=8.32; 95%CI=3.18-21.76), coffee (OR=1.46; 95%CI=1.05-2.01) and spirits (OR=1.15; 95%CI=1.04-1.28) as statistically significant risk factors, while mineral water (OR=0.52; 95%CI=0.34-0.79), skim milk (OR=0.38; 95%CI=0.16-0.91), yogurt (OR=0.34; 95%CI=0.12-0.97) and frequency of daily urination (OR=0.27; 95%CI=0.18-0.41) were statistically significant protective variables. In our study no statistically significant association was observed for total fluid intake. The findings suggest consumption of soda, coffee and spirits were indicated as a risk factors for bladder cancer, while mineral water, skim milk, yogurt and frequency of urination as protective factors for bladder cancer.
