Cancer Epidemiology and Prevention

JAMA. 2009;301(10):1070-1076. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.270

Compared with its highly respected earlier editions, the third edition of this indispensable reference and research summary on cancer epidemiology and prevention includes an increased number of contributors and a notable shift in emphasis, reflecting the dynamism of a rapidly developing discipline. The editors assembled leaders in the field to update the chapters to reflect the expanding scope of the global burden of cancer, the complex interactions of gene and environment, and current challenges in cancer epidemiology and prevention. This book is an excellent resource for epidemiologists, clinicians, behavioral scientists, other researchers, and students to use in the classroom or for background information useful in preparing publications or grants.
