Cancer risks and prevention
Oxford University Press, Nov 1, 1985 - Medical - 301 pages
To mark Sir Richard Doll's retirement and to pay tribute to his distinguished career in epidemiology, a number of his colleagues have reviewed known cancer risks and considered some of the possibilities for prevention, with special reference to smoking. The contributors emphasize recent methodology and the presentation of results. Topics include the geography of cancer; the roles played by diet, occupation, and radiation exposure; exogeous and endogenous hormones; prevention through legislation and education; and a special study of risks and prevention in the Third World. This book will prove both informative and pleasurable to epidemiologists, medical statisticians, cancer researchers, health educators, and general readers.
