The purpose of this study was to determine if there were relationships between specific health behaviors and cancer using data from the 2003 Adult Questionnaire of the California Health Interview Survey. The independent variables used in this study involved cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, walking, and diabetes.
There was extensive literary information suggesting that human behavior accounts for 50% to 75% of all cancer related deaths, and have suggested relationships between cancer and the independent variables used in this study.
The results indicated that cancer had a significant relationship with cigarette smoking and diabetes. However, cancer did not have a significant relationship with alcohol consumption and walking.
