Cancer Risk Factors in Ontario: Evidence Summary reviews the epidemiologic evidence linking a broad range of risk factors to various types of cancer in Ontario. This is a valuable reference and foundation for prevention efforts, especially for planning and reporting on cancer prevention actions.
The user-friendly format addresses risk factors in short chapters with summary tables linking risk factors/exposures and cancers. Shaded boxes in many chapters give definitional and measurement information. Each chapter has an extensive bibliography for further detail on specific cancer-risk factor associations.
The report focuses on the following risk categories: behavioural (tobacco, alcohol, etc.), reproductive and hormonal, environmental (ultraviolet radiation, fine particulate matter, etc.), occupational, infectious, genetic, medical conditions and treatment.
