Description
OBJECTIVES:
The Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) was sent out in the fall of 1998 to collect nutrition data from participants in the Longitudinal Study of Astronaut Health (LSAH). A total of 645 participants answered and returned this survey. The 116 male astronaut respondents had a mean age of 48.2 years, while the 448 male comparison participants had a slightly higher mean age of 50.8 years.
