%. PAFs for excess weight were much higher for males (between 13.5% and 18.2%) than for females 2.3% to 4.6%), and highest for British males (18%), the researchers say.

In the physical activity scenario, if all countries adopt the physical activity levels as observed for The Netherlands, which had the highest levels observed overall, between 0.5 (Czech Republic, males) and 5.1 (Spain; females) per 100,000 colon cancer cases per 100,000 person-years, or up to 17.5% of new colon cancer cases might be prevented in 2040. The highest PAF for physical activity was projected to be 21% for Spanish females.

"We found interesting patterns in these models," said Dr. Renehan. "Preventing weight gain and encouraging weight reduction would seem to be most beneficial in men, but for women a strategy with a great emphasis on increasing physical activity would be more effective."

Throughout the various papers in the special issue, the authors understand that modifying lifestyle is difficult. "We can safely say increasing physical activity across Europe to the level already achieved in The Netherlands, where everyone cycles, would be of substantial benefit," said Professor Jan-Willem Coebergh, from Erasmus University, The Netherlands, and one of the co-editors. "But we will always need sound evidence before prevention strategies can be implemented," he added.

Professor Michael Baumann, from the University Hospital and Medical Faculty, Dresden, Germany, and ECCO President, said: "Cancer prevention may not be foremost in the policy-makers' minds at present, but right now it is more relevant than it has ever been before. The recession confronts them with a clear choice either to introduce short-term cost-containment strategies, which will simply increase long-term costs, or to use the financial crisis as an opportunity to strengthen evidence-based prevention policies. We hope that the evidence so amply provided in this special issue of the EJC wil
