  • All-Ireland Cancer Atlas shows major variation in cancer risk by area | National Cancer Registry Ireland
    significantly higher risk of both types of skin cancer Bowel cancer was more common around Cork city and in a band across the north of the island Lung cancer risk was higher in urban areas Belfast Dublin Derry and Cork and in the east Prostate cancer risk was much higher in the Republic of Ireland than in N Ireland Stomach cancer risk was highest in a band running from Dublin to Donegal The risk of many cancers was related to the level of socio economic deprivation in the area Lung stomach head and neck and cervical cancer risk was higher in areas of high unemployment or low educational attainment while skin breast and prostate cancer risk was lower in these areas Cancer risk was higher in more densely populated areas Cancer risk was higher for many cancers in areas with a higher proportion of elderly people living alone Commenting on the findings in the atlas Dr Anna Gavin Director of the N Ireland Cancer Registry said It is generally accepted that geographic variations in cancer risk are predominantly the result of variations in factors such as tobacco smoking alcohol drinking obesity diet and sexual behaviour Action should be taken to reduce the prevalence of important modifiable risk factors such as tobacco alcohol obesity and UV exposure However while some correlation between smoking prevalence and smoking related cancers were detected Some of the variation for other diseases may also be attributable to health service provision such as higher levels of breast screening in NI in the 1990s and more prostate specific antigen testing in RoI Dr Harry Comber Director of the National Cancer Registry commented Understanding the reasons for geographical variation and taking appropriate action would reduce the cancer burden significantly in Ireland Few of the geographical patterns in cancer risk

  • Misinterpretation of "All-Ireland Cancer Atlas, 1995-2007" with regard to water fluoridation and cancer. | National Cancer Registry Ireland
    and cancer The atlas in which these maps were published and some previous reports has analysed the differences in cancer risk between the two countries HC1 We do not consider that water fluoridation is a plausible explanation for the patterns shown We have reached this conclusion for a number of reasons 1 There is no good evidence to link fluoride levels in water whether natural or added to cancer risk The International Agency for Research on Cancer has concluded The relationship between cancer mortality or incidence and both natural and artificial fluoride in drinking water has been investigated in a large number of descriptive epidemiological studies of population aggregates carried out in Australia Canada New Zealand Norway the United Kingdom and the United States None of the studies provided any evidence that an increased level of fluoride in water was associated with an increase in cancer mortality 2 The maps do not show a clear difference between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland but for a small number of cancers there is a smooth gradient in cancer risk from the north east to the south west of Ireland increasing right across the island There is no evidence of a change in this gradient at the border except for prostate cancer for which differences in PSA testing rates are the obvious and accepted explanation 3 Although the bulk of the population in the Republic of Ireland lives in cities and large towns where the water is fluoridated most of the area shown on the map is sparsely populated and without fluoridated water supplies so water fluoridation cannot be suggested as an explanation for the patterns seen There are many possible explanations for the variety of geographical cancer patterns which we have observed and these are discussed in detail in the
