  1. All analyses are adjusted for age, diet assistant, period, method version and changed dietary habits. Energy adjustment is applied where stated. aCyclin D1 overexpression with nucleus fraction ≥50%. bCyclin E overexpression with nucleus fraction ≥50%. cHigh proliferation index with nuclear fraction ≥10. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01. MUFA, monounsaturated fatty acids; PUFA, polyunsaturated fatty acids; SFA, saturated fatty acids.
