Lifestyle factors and impact on colon cancer risk

Abstract: In my exploration titled “Lifestyle Factors and Impact on Colon Cancer Risk,” I initially set out to understand the relationship between lifestyle choices and colon cancer risk. However, a pivot was necessary due to the scarcity of data on colon cancer incidents in the NHANES dataset. This led me to a more focused inquiry into how obesity, a significant public health concern, might play a role in the development of colon cancer. Delving into the NHANES 2015-2016 data for adults over 20, I examined various lifestyle factors and their association with obesity.
