Description:

The factors underpinning cancer incidence and mortality are multiple and complex. While genetic risk factors for developing cancer can be attributed to a proportion of cancer incidences across a number of cancer sites, lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol use, diet and obesity impact significantly upon cancer incidence and are considerably more important.

Reduce smoking rates among men in the Republic of Ireland through targeted campaigns informing men of the risks and range of cancers attributable to tobacco use and through targeted smoking cessation initiatives 2. Target men of lower socioeconomic status for smoking cessation programmes and initiatives Alcohol 1.
