The unequal distribution of cancer occurrences and survival rates amongst social groups raises some important, difficult and controversial policy issues, especially insofar as they are related to lifestyles (smoking, fatty foods, lack of exercise etc.). Proposals should address the values underlying two key issues:
1) Equality of opportunity and lifestyles: when some (disadvantaged) social groups are exposed to a greater risk of getting cancer and lower survival rates than other groups and this in part can be explained by differences in lifestyle, is this then a result of their circumstances, for which they may be entitled to compensation, or of their choices? And what does the answer to this question imply for rationing issues in health care?
2) State neutrality and lifestyles: according to the ideal of state neutrality, the state should be impartial between different lifestyles. But what, exactly, does this ideal imply with respect to the ways in which the state may legitimately campaign for ‘healthy' lifestyles?
