Health education and teacher training receive a high priority in the `Europe against cancer' programme. Health education is a subject that goes beyond the normal confines of syllabus and textbook into action and implementation. The main aim is not to teach biological details on cancer and its treatment, it is rather to encourage the adoption of the healthy lifestyles exemplified by the `European code against cancer'. Topics discussed at the conference include health education in both primary and secondary schools and specific actions taken in France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Sweden, Luxembourg, Ireland, Greece, Italy and Spain. The effects of smoking and nutrition are highlighted.
