Oncologists and their epidemiology colleagues have long recognized that much of cancer was not a simple matter of chance but to a very significant extent was related to our behaviour, the potential carcinogenic exposures we were subjected to in our personal and work environments, and the access individuals had to advances in cancer screening. Everyone is familiar with the documented impact that measures to reduce tobacco usage have had on the incidence of cancer – a prime example of changing behaviour. Many believe that the epidemic of obesity occurring now will have an even greater impact on increasing the risk and incidence of many cancers.
