How many cancers can be prevented?
Did you know that about 4 in 10 cancer cases in Canada can be prevented? It’s true. There are things we eat, drink, breathe and do that affect our cancer risk.
The ComPARe study (Canadian Population Attributable Risk of Cancer) found how many cancer cases we can prevent in the future by changing the world around us. This includes making healthy choices and protecting ourselves where we live, work and play.
If we act now, we can prevent thousands of cancer cases by the year 2042. It’s all about understanding what the risks are and taking action to protect ourselves in our everyday lives.
