Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in HIV-positive and HIV-negative homosexual men in the San Francisco Bay Area: allergies, prior medication use, and sexual practices.
 Holly EA, Lele C.
  "Lifestyle, sexual history, and medical history characteristics were analyzed as risk factors for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in a population-based case-control study of 1593 subjects with NHL and 2515 control subjects conducted in the San Francisco Bay Area between 1988 and 1995... Among HIV-positive homosexual men, after adjustment for other factors, those that were associated with a reduced risk for NHL were frequency of receptive anal intercourse between the ages of 20 and 29 (1 to 9 times: OR = 0.63; > or = 10 times: OR = 0.37; trend: p = 0.02)... Among HIV-negative homosexual men, after adjustment for other factors, factors that were associated with NHL status were frequency of receptive anal intercourse between the ages of 20 and 29 (1 to 9 times: OR = 0.39; > or =10 times: OR = 0.20; trend: p = 0.001)..."

Drinking water nitrate and the risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
 Ward MH, Mark SD, Cantor KP, Weisenburger DD, Correa-Villasenor A, Zahm SH.
  The increasing incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in the United States is only partially explained by known risk factors. Nitrate is a contaminant of drinking water in many rural areas. We evaluated its association with NHL after accounting for dietary nitrate intake. For 156 cases and 527 controls who used Nebraska community supplies, average nitrate exposure was estimated from 1947 through 1979. Longterm consumption of community water with average nitrate levels in the highest quartile (> or = 4 mg per liter nitrate-nitrogen) was positively associated with risk [odds ratio (OR) = 2.0; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.1-3.6]... These findings indicate that longterm exposure to elevated nitrate levels in drinking water may contribute to the risk of NHL.

  poppers are nitrites => same chemical family than nitrates (nitrate and nitrite are inorganic ions occurring naturally as part of the nitrogen cycle)
