  1. 1 – The shared component representing smoking; 2 – The shared component representing bodyweight/obesity; 3 – The shared component representing diet/alcohol consumption.
  2. The figures in the main body of the table represent the weight of the cancer listed along the top row relative to the cancers listed along the left hand side (with 95% confidence intervals). If the RR is > 1.00 the cancer along the top row has more weight, if the RR is < 1.00 the cancer along the left hand side has more weight.
