Editorial Reviews

Describes relationships among physical activity, calorie consumption, energy expenditure, dietary fat, and cancer, based on epidemiological, animal, and in vitro studies. The 18 chapters were platform presentations at a conference in Pentagon City, Virginia, September 1991, sponsored by the American Institute for Cancer Research. Among the topics are voluntary exercise and experimental mammary cancer, the modulation of chemical toxicity by the modification of caloric intake, and a model for studying the effects of marine oil on colon tumor growth. Some 40 abstracts of poster presentations are also included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
