Lifestyle factors are extremely important in colorectal cancer. Smoking is causally related to colon, but not rectal, cancer. Alcohol is a cause of both colon and rectal cancers. Higher levels of body fatness, and in particular central adiposity, are positively related to risk. In a recent meta-analysis, each 5kg/m2 increment in body mass index was associated with an 18% increase in risk; the association appears stronger for colon than rectal cancer, for men than women, and in studies adjusting for physical activity.
