Institute of Epidemiology, School of Medicine, Belgrade, Yugoslavia.


Eighty-eight patients with histologically confirmed colon cancer and two control groups individually matched by age, sex and place of residence, were interviewed about demographic, biosocial and medical variables. The use of laxatives, past history of large bowel disease and coffee consumption for 20 or more years were significantly more frequent among colon cancer than in their controls. No significant differences were found between cases and controls with respect to education level, job activity, smoking habits, alcohol consumption and cholecystectomy.
