Mouth cancer risk is not enough to motivate most people to change their lifestyle.
A recent study showed that 20 million people wouldn’t change anything even if they knew it would lead directly to mouth cancer. In all, 30 percent of people said they wouldn’t eliminate smoking, drinking or an unhealthy diet even if they knew that doing so would directly correlate to a lower risk of developing oral cancer.
About one of every four participants in the study said they felt they were at risk of developing mouth cancer solely based on the way he or she lived.
