Report finds continuing challenges in changing behaviors that increase cancer risk
Date:4/11/2013

An annual report from the American Cancer Society finds continuing challenges in changing behaviors and risk factors in order to reduce suffering and death from cancer. The report, Cancer Prevention & Early Detection Facts & Figures (CPED) 2013, outlines the current prevalence of tobacco use, obesity, physical inactivity, and the use of established screening tests, and emphasizes that social, economic, and legislative factors profoundly influence the individual health behaviors that contribute to cancer risk.

Since 1992, the American Cancer Society has published CPED as a resource to strengthen cancer prevention and early detection efforts at the local, state, and national levels. Below are highlights of the 2013 report.

Tobacco Use

  • Cigarette smoking prevalence in US adults declined from 20.9% to 19.0% between 2005 and 2011, with significant declines in both men (23.9% to 21.6%) and women (18.1% to 16.5%) as well as in young adults, Hispanics, and Asians.

  • Heavy smoking also declined significantly during that time, reflecting long-term historical trends toward lower cigarette consumption among smokers.

  • Smoking among high school students has dropped from a high of 36.4% in 1997 to a new low of 18.1% in 2011.

  • Apart from cigarettes, the most commonly used tobacco products among high school students in 2011 were cigars (13.1%) and smokeless tobacco (7.7%).

  • The average state cigarette excise tax rate is $1.48, with wide variation between states ranging from 17 cents per pack in Missouri to $4.35 per pack in New York.

  • Despite record high revenues from tobacco taxes and the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) awards, states spent less on tobacco prevention (< 2% of tobacco-related revenue) during 2011-2012 than in any period since the MSA was reached in 1998.

  • In part as a response to increasing smoke-free environments, the tobacco industry ramped up marketing expenditures on smoke
