The European Code Against Cancer turns 30: Awareness of cancer is growing ... but yet more needs to be done!
The 30th anniversary of the first edition of the European Code Against Cancer (ECAC) is celebrated today with encouraging news that awareness of cancer prevention is on the rise.
According to a recent online survey by the Association of the European Cancer Leagues (ECL), 82% of people understand that people can reduce their risk of getting cancer in the future by making changes to their lifestyle. This an increase on the result of the previous survey from 2015 when 78% of people believed cancer could be prevented through making lifestyle changes.
Today, a 17% of 18-34 year-olds reported that are aware of the ECAC and to increase that percentage, the ECL’s Youth Ambassadors group have recorded a video with the 12 messages of the ECAC recited in 12 different languages of the ambassadors involved and, among them, Ariadna Feliu the youngest member of our Tobacco Control Unit.
