The BBC says:

Two thirds of people have not changed their diet or lifestyle to reduce the risk of cancer, a survey for the BBC's Newsnight programme has found.

This is despite evidence and public health campaigns that highlight diet and lifestyle as a cause of between a third to a half of all cancers.

The poll of 1,000 adults found over a third said that they tried to ignore cancer or hardly ever think about it.

One cancer expert said new ways were needed to convey health messages.

Oh, those dreadful peasants, not paying enough attention to the brilliant public health campaigns waged by the academic middle class control freaks who run the country. Evidently the academic middle class, led by the BBC, find the concept difficult, but most people have better things to do with their lives than spend their time worrying about cancer (and every other topic the academic middle class continually obsesses about).
