About the ComPARe study

The Canadian Population Attributable Risk of Cancer (ComPARe) study estimates the number and percentage of cancer cases in Canada due to modifiable lifestyle, environmental and infectious agent risk factors. The ComPARe study also estimates how changes to these risk factors through prevention could affect the number of cancer cases in the future.
