Colorectal cancer increasing in younger adults.

At head of title: Ontario cancer facts Includes bibliographical references. 'Colorectal cancer is considered largely preventable. It has been linked to well-established modifiable lifestyle risk factors, such as eating red meat or processed meat, excessive consumption of alcohol and excess body weight. While the reasons for the recent rises in incidence among younger adults are mostly unknown, they may be partly explained by the increased prevalence of these modifiable risk factors in this age group.'--Page 1.

In situ cancers being reported in Ontario.

At head of title: Ontario cancer facts Includes bibliographical references. 'For the first time, the Ontario Cancer Registry (OCR) is reporting in situ cancers. An in situ cancer is an early-stage cancer in the epithelial cells (i.e., cells that line internal organs) that is still confined to the site where it began. Historically, the OCR only contained information about malignant cancers (i.e., cancers that are starting to invade nearby tissue), but in 2010 it began registering in situ cancers to provide information on the full spectrum of cancer progression.'--Page 1.

Increasing number of quit attempts may raise Ontario smoking cessation rates.

At head of title: Ontario cancer facts Includes bibliographical references. 'Recent research from the United States suggests that the strongest driver of a population's cessation rate (i.e., the proportion of smokers who remain quit for at least 12 months) is the quit attempt rate, since most smokers quit on their own without assistance (i.e., medication and counselling) and most will need to make repeated attempts to quit before succeeding.'--P. 1.
