Title
Proportion of prostate cancer cases and deaths attributable to potentially modifiable risk factors
Summary
Prostate cancer is causally related to potentially modifiable risk factors, and contemporary estimates of this proportion in a population are a valuable tool for setting priorities for cancer prevention and control.
Investigate the proportion and number of invasive prostate cancer cases and deaths that were attributable to potentially modifiable exposures. These risk factors include cigarette smoking; secondhand smoke; excess body weight; alcohol intake; consumption of red and processed meat; low consumption of fruits and vegetables, dietary fiber, and dietary calcium; physical inactivity; ultraviolet radiation and other life and eating habits.
Aims

To investigate risk factors associated with prostate cancer screening, diagnosis, and survival time
