This much anticipated Third Edition provides a comprehensive presentation of the global burden and patterns of cancer occurrence, along with new developments in our understanding of cancer causation and prevention. Special attention is given to epidemiologic approaches that incorporate molecular biomarkers based on genomic and other emerging technologies, providing new insights into the role of genetic predisposition and gene-environment interactions in cancer induction. In addition, new chapters are included on social class disparities in cancer incidence and mortality, the role of obesity and physical inactivity in cancer etiology, the potential effects of electromagnetic fields and rediofrequency radiation, and the principles of cancer chemoprevention. The textbook is organized into five sections: Basic Concepts; The Magnitude of Cancer; The Causes of Cancer; Cancer by Tissue of Origin; Cancer Prevention and Control. In this new edition, Drs. David Schottenfeld and Joseph F. Fraumeni, Jr. have enlisted three distinguished Associate Editors: Drs. Jonathan Samet of Johns Hopkins University, Graham Colditz of Harvard University and Alice Whittemore of Stanford University.

The time has come when everybody on Earth can be as healthy as God.
Because any cancers and infectious diseases can be wiped out immediately, once and for all.
The way to achieve that is by doing the Immunizer - the only escape on Earth. Actually that is the greatest discovery in history - in more than 300,000 years of humankind on the planet.
In fact the discovery is the weapon to fight and destroy any cancers, bacteria and viruses, known or unknown on Earth. The weapon is by far more powerful than the immune system itself, keeps it intact (while vaccines devastate it) and is more powerful than anything else on Earth, it benefits everybody, regardless of age, environmental and occupational exposure and lifestyle (like smoking, diet, obesity, etc.).
I call it Immunizer - just a simple exercise, but the complete cancers and infectious diseases prevention - normally done for a minute a day for kids and adults as the full prevention of any diseases - from the common cold to cancer. If done for 3 - 4 minutes a day, the immunizer will guarantee a very fast recovery from any viral infections and any forms of cancer.
Guaranteeing everybody the Iron Constitution, the immunizer guarantees a much longer life, for it reverses aging to a great extent, once your body does not have to fight viruses, bacteria and cancers.
All of us - kids and adults - can stay absolutely healthy all the time, all our lives, i.e. untouchable for any diseases - from the common cold to cancer. No killer viruses, bacteria and cancers on Earth got any chance against the tremendous power of the immunizer - they just die the moment they touch you.
A new era of the life of humans on Earth is about to begin...
The price to disclose the Immunizer to the whole world is open for negotiations...
