11 Other Cancers Several reports have suggested a relationship between high consumption of animal fat with increased risk of several cancers not only bowel, breast and prostate cancers but, possibly also pancreas cancers. 12 Vegetarian Diets Members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church have a lower than average incidence of most cancers, including cancers of the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, prostate, colon and rectum. However, as well as being vegetarians with a high-fibre and low meat and animal fat consumption, these people are usually non-smokers and non-consumers of alcohol which may well be more significant.

2 Air Pollution In Western societies, city dwellers living in a more highly polluted atmosphere have a slightly higher incidence of lung cancer than their country cousins. This factor, however, is not nearly as significant as the smoking habits of the people concerned. Atmospheric pollution with asbestos in some workplaces in mining and building industries was, in the past, responsible not only for increased lung cancer but also for development of an aggressive cancer of pleura or peritoneum called mesothelioma.

The incidence is highest in fair-skinned people living in sunny climates in Australia and in the sunny southern parts of the United States. In Australia, not only is there the world’s highest incidence of skin cancer and melanoma but the incidence varies from state to state. It increases proportionately with the proximity of the state to the equator. For the more common forms of skin cancer (squamous and basal cell carcinoma) the incidence is directly related to areas of skin most often exposed to the sun.
