‘Whose fault is this?’

“…the high prevalence of cancer was in large part due to diet, smoking, alcohol consumption and lack of physical activity…”

“Urgent action is being called on by the ‘Chiefs of Ontario’ and ‘Cancer Care Ontario’ to address key factors contributing to high aboriginal cancer rates {like tax-free cigarettes?}, after a new report provides a look at how much higher disease rates are among aboriginal people living on and off-reserve than the non-aboriginal population. 

“The review was conducted through a partnership of Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) and the Chiefs of Ontario”, said Grand Council Chief Patrick Madahbee, who is chair of the Ontario Chiefs Committee on Health. “We‘ve been saying for quite awhile now that the prevalence of cancer is increasing in our communities and we did not know all the reasons why. Some of the assumptions such as the smoking rate among our people is very high has been borne out in this report. Unfortunately, especially in the case of young people, the rate of those who smoke is significantly higher.”

 

“The report talks about the fact that smoking rates are sometimes four times higher among natives, along with obesity, improper diet and the type of food our community members eat”, said Chief Madahbee.

“He pointed out in the latter this can be attributed in part to the large costs of purchasing food in the Far North. Milk for instance is significantly higher in remote ‘First Nation’ communities in the North {And beer is cheaper?}

“Among the findings in the report called ‘Cancer in First Nations in Ontario: Risk Factors and Screening’ shows ‘First Nation’ people living on reserve are two or three times more likely to smoke than non-aboriginal people. Nearly one-third of ‘First Nation’ teenagers living on reserve and 14% living off-reserve smoke, compared to four percent of non-aboriginal teens.

“As well, obesity rates are almost three times higher among those people living on ‘First Nation’ reserves, and the percentage of people eating enough fruits and vegetables is one-third that of non-aboriginal Ontarians…

“The report notes that the consumption of fruits and vegetables was low on ‘First Nations’ communities… Many ‘First Nations’ are remote and the cost of obtaining fresh food is out of reach {Try dried fruit, rice, etc. instead of potato chips…}.

“In working with CCO, Chief Madahbee said it was found that the high prevalence of cancer was in large part due to diet, smoking, alcohol consumption and lack of physical activity…”
