Genetics the dominant risk factor in common cancers

A study of individuals who have been adopted has identified genetics as the dominant risk factor in ‘familial’ breast, prostate and colorectal cancers. Researchers have presented the new research findings based on studies of population registers.“The results of our study do not mean that an individual’s lifestyle is not important for the individual’s risk of developing cancer, but it suggests that the risk for the three most common types of cancer is dependent to a greater extent on genetics”, said the lead of the study.
