Figure 1

Mammographic density according to number of servings per week of beverages or sweet foods. Percent (A) and absolute (B) density according to weekly servings of sugar-sweetened beverages among all women. Absolute density according to weekly servings of sugar-sweetened beverages among premenopausal women (C). Percent density according to weekly servings of sweet foods among postmenopausal women (D). Percent and absolute density were square root-transformed for all analyses, except for percent density among premenopausal, to obtain an approximate normal distribution. Means are presented as back-transformed values for these analyses. Error lines represent the 95% confidence intervals. All analyses were adjusted for total caloric intake, age at mammography, BMI, waist-to-hip ratio, age at menarche, number of full-term pregnancies, age at first full-term pregnancy, duration of use of hormonal contraceptive, duration of use of hormonal therapy, alcohol intake, physical activity, family history of breast cancer, number of biopsies, smoking status, education, breastfeeding and menopausal status when applicable. P trend = p-value for linear contrast test.
