The causes of cancer: quantitative estimates of avoidable risks of cancer in the United States today
This book reviews epidemiological and other knowledge about cancer to provide an overview of what is known, what is not known, and where important knowledge should be sought about practicable means of avoiding cancer. Although the perspective offered will be of interest to specialists in cancer research or regulation, no specialist knowledge by the reader is assumed, so students of many subjects will enjoy the clarity of thought and style which it offers.
