AHS-2 Research


With 96,000 Adventist participants in the U.S. and Canada, the Adventist Health Study-2 (AHS-2) is one of the largest and most comprehensive studies of diet and cancer in the world. It is also one of the largest dietary studies of Black/African Americans and is helping answer why this group has a disproportionate amount of cancers and heart disease. AHS-2 is the latest in a series of long-running studies on the diet, lifestyle and health outcomes of the Adventist population in North America.
