Subjects: A population-based case–control study of 406 patients with renal cell carcinoma and 2434 controls conducted in Iowa. Methods: Information was collected on weight at the ages 20–29, 40–49, and 60–69 years, height, nonoccupational physical activity, diet, and other lifestyle factors. Renal cell carcinoma risk was estimated by odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs), adjusting for age, total energy intake, and other confounding factors.
