More Than 1 in 3 Common Cancers Could Be Preventable

More than a third of common adult cancers may be preventable in the U.S., not even counting cancers that could be prevented by not smoking.

The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) and its sister organization, the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) estimate that in the U.S., eating a nutritious diet, being physically active, and keeping body fat under control may prevent:

  • 38 percent of breast cancers
  • 45 percent of colorectal cancers
  • 36 percent of lung cancers
  • 39 percent of pancreatic cancers
  • 47 percent of stomach cancers
  • 69 percent of esophageal cancers
  • 63 percent of cancers of the mouth, pharynx, or larynx
  • 70 percent of endometrial cancers
  • 24 percent of kidney cancers
  • 21 percent of gallbladder cancers
  • 15 percent of liver cancers
  • 11 percent of prostate cancers

Diet, physical activity, and limited body fat could prevent 34 percent of those 12 cancers overall in the U.S.
