    Primary Prevention: United for Action

    July 2021
    Executive Summary

    Each year, millions of people across the European region develop cancer, causing a heavy burden on individuals and their families, healthcare systems, governments and wider society, not to mention the impact in terms of lives lost. Yet 40% of all cancers are preventable. 20% of European cancer cases are attributable to tobacco consumption, 8% to alcohol, and further 5% each to an unbalanced diet and being overweight or obese, while another 2%–3% are linked to harmful ultraviolet exposure. Additional cancer causes and risk factors include infections by Human Papillomaviruses (HPV), Hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV & HCV) and Helicobacter pylori; exposure to ionising radiation; air, water and food pollution; and occupational exposure to carcinogens.
