This collection of recent epidemiological research on cancer prevention demonstrates the associations between specific cancers and modifiable lifestyle factors or environmental exposures such as tobacco and alcohol use, infections, obesity certain sexual and reproductive practices, the use of exogenous estrogens, exposure to radiation, certain occupational and chemical exposures, and food and nutrient intake. Some papers look at research issues such as identification of novel inhibitors of angiogenesis using a human in vitro anti-angiogenic assay. Others examine risk factors such as proximity to cell-phone transmitter stations and heavy metals. Still other papers report on the chemopreventive effects of black tea, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, inulin-derived prebiotics, cruciferous plants, and soy. There is also material on cultural and social issues in prevention, screening, and treatment, with chapters on ethnicity and physical activity, an intervention to increase colorectal cancer screening among veterans, and Latinas' willingness to participate in chemoprevention trials.
