This project is quantifying the number and proportion of incident cancer cases in Canada, now and to 2042, that could be prevented through changes in modifiable lifestyle and environmental exposures associated with cancer. The broad risk factor categories of interest are: tobacco exposure, dietary factors, physical activity, obesity, environmental factors, infectious
diseases and hormonal therapies. This project includes a Pan-Canadian group of co-investigators as well as major partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society. A committee of knowledge end-users for this research is also participating in this project. Several papers are inprogress and results will be forthcoming in 2018.
