Note: EAC = excess attributable risk, PAR = population attributable risk, TOC = total observed cases.

*Represents total number of incident cancer cases in 2012 from the Alberta Cancer Registry. Counts of less than 5 are suppressed, as are totals from any cells that would allow calculation of values in suppressed cells.

†Represents the proportion (percentage) of cancer cases attributable to insufficient fruit and vegetable consumption.

‡Numbers rounded to nearest case. Values for Total (men and women combined) may not match individual totals for men and women.
