For sample adults who believe diet can reduce the risk of developing major diseases, FOODSHLESS4 reports the fourth food item the respondent mentioned that should be eaten less to help prevent cancer.

FOODSHLESS4 is part of a series of variables initiated in 1987 related to food, food knowledge, and cancer. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus or see DIETCHANGEV.


Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.
