NOTE: Numbers of EAC cases from scenarios 1 and 2 and estimated from SEER data are presented by sampled year and cumulatively in the final row. The fifth column, “From obesity,” is the difference between scenario 2 and scenario 1, which is the number of cases attributed to the rise in obesity. The final column, entitled “Total rise,” is the difference between SEER and scenario 1.
