Now revised for the first time in more than a decade, this fourth edition provides a comprehensive summary of the global patterns of cancer incidence and mortality, current understanding of the major causal determinants, and a rationale for preventive interventions. Special attention is paid to molecular epidemiologic approaches that address the wider role of genetic predisposition and gene-environment interactions in cancer etiology and pathogenesis.
New and timely chapters on environmental and social-epidemiologic factors include:
• The role of social class disparities
• The role of obesity and physical inactivity
• The potential effects of electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation
• The principles of cancer chemoprevention
For both seasoned professionals and newer generations of students and researchers, this fourth edition of Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention remains the authority in the field – a work of distinction that every lab, library, student, professional, or researcher should have close at hand.
