An authoritative work that provides a detailed review of the current status of cancer prevention and control practice and research. This volume is an essential reference guide and tool for primary care physicians, the research community and students.

Written as a collaborative work by the faculty of the nationally renowned Cancer Prevention and Control Program at the Arizona Cancer Center, this book brings together the expertise of specialists in the field of cancer prevention and control to provide the medical and research community that does not specialize in this field with insight to the disciplines of cancer prevention and control.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: In a time when the lay press tends to emphasize isolated aspects of cancer prevention, this book is an excellent comprehensive summary of current medical thinking. The previous edition was published in 2005.
Purpose: The book looks at the prevalence and the evidence of cancer prevention to make an objective scientific assessment of the problem. This is the only way the nation can approach the problem in a compassionate and cost-effective manner. The book also helps practitioners address the questions that patients present after seeing much, and at times conflicting, information in the lay press.
Audience: This is a reference for everyone who provides primary or specialized care for cancer patients. The authors and contributors are all experts in their field.
Features: The strength of the book is the evidence upon which it is based. For each topic, the book looks at the published literature and draws conclusions based upon the evidence. From the introductory chapters through the socioeconomic factors, diet, physical activity, heredity, and immune responses, the discussions are detailed yet concise. There is an excellent section on drug development followed by specific prevention strategies for specific types of cancer. This is an extraordinary contribution to the field.
Assessment: This reference is an absolute must for every primary care practitioner and oncologist. It is most helpful in maintaining currency understanding the advances in cancer prevention.
