Table 1 Data used to build dietary indices. Panel A: Median (IQR) of food or nutrient intakes used as cut-off for the Mediterranean diet index. Panel B: Mean (SD) of food or nutrient intakes and overall inflammatory effect score used for the dietary inflammation index

From: Diet and endometrial cancer: a focus on the role of fruit and vegetable intake, Mediterranean diet and dietary inflammatory index in the endometrial cancer risk
