Comments P.1331 right column 2nd paragraph: "This same analytic approach can be applied to cancer types for which epidemiologic studies have indicated a less pronounced role of environmental factors. Figure 2C depicts pancreatic ductal adenocarcinomas. About 37% of these cancers are thought to be preventable (versus 89% for lung adenocarcinomas) (primary source)."
