Unhealthy lifestyles giving rise to 2500 cancer cases a week

Last night Professor Linda Bauld, who leads the CRUK's prevention efforts, said the barrage of criticism levelled at the the charity had not influenced the change, but that the adjustment took place to make it "absolutely clear that not everyone who".

It found Scotland has the highest preventable rates at 41.5 per cent, with Wales and Northern Ireland both around 38 per cent and England the lowest at 37.3 per cent.

Dealing with smoking, obesity and alcohol consumption could make the biggest difference.

Cancer Research has also expressed its concern over excess weight and obesity - the second leading preventable cause of cancer - which accounts for 6.3% of all United Kingdom cancer cases.

Obesity was found to be the second biggest contributor in preventable cancer cases, with around 22,800 diagnoses a year due to the patient being overweight or obese.

But the number of cancer cases caused by smoking is falling as people kick the habit.

Outdoor air pollution was responsible for around 3,600 lung cancer cases a year. Most of these cases are linked to Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and H. Pylori.

Obesity could overtake smoking as the chief avoidable cause of cancer-related deaths, the world's largest independent funder of cancer research said Friday. These figures show that we each can take positive steps to help reduce our individual risk of the disease.

Prof Linda Bauld, Cancer Research UK's prevention expert, said: "Obesity is a huge health threat right now, and it will only get worse if nothing is done".
