The Shanghai Men's Health Study (SMHS) is a population-based cohort study of 61,582 Chinese men between 40 and 74 who lived in urban Shanghai at enrollment. Because intake levels of many suspected cancer-inhibitory dietary factors are high and diverse in Shanghai, the SMHS offers unique opportunities to fill such knowledge gaps. Detailed information on dietary and other lifestyle factors was collected at baseline and is being updated in follow-up surveys. Biological samples were collected from 89% of cohort members. The cohort has been followed for cancer occurrence and deaths via linkage with the population-based Shanghai Cancer Registry and the Shanghai Vital Statistics Unit, as well as through visits to all living cohort members every 2 years. Funded by the National Cancer Institute.
