PaulB, who wrote the article, has since blogged about the incidence of bowel cancer, rather than the mortality figures he previously reported:

In that same post he notes a possible connection between (lower levels of) sunlight and bowel cancer. So yes, I think you're right to be suspicious when the "Glasgow effect" is explained by binge drinking and a lack of exercise.
