On the whole, Environmentally Induced Cancer and the Law provides an excellent introduction to the field of carcinogen regulation and response.

Excellent factual summaries and clear descriptions of issues will keep even readers with no scientific background on by: 8. Cross provides a comprehensive treatment of the widely feared problem of environmentally induced cancer.

The author takes a threefold approach to the problem, first examining the cancers themselves and what is known about their causes and then exploring both the government's regulation of these environmental pollutants and the legal remedies available to victims of such cancers.

Environmentally Induced Illnesses is written by teacher of Medical Ethics and Philosophy Professor Thomas Kerns. His background provides the reader with the means and insight to ask important questions, weigh the humanitarian aspects and uncover truths that may be unfamiliar to us.5/5(5).

Ecology and Evolution of Cancer is a timely work outlining ideas that not only represent a substantial and original contribution to the fields of evolution, ecology, and cancer, but also goes beyond by connecting the interfaces of these disciplines.

Between September and Januarythe President’s Cancer Panel (the Panel) convened four meetings to assess the state of environmental cancer research, policy, and programs addressing known and potential effects of environmental exposures on cancer.

The law also authorizes NIH, with guidance from the NCI Director and in coordination with ongoing research activities, to continue to conduct and support pediatric cancer survivorship research, and includes an emphasis on studying late effects of pediatric cancer treatment, as well as disparities in outcomes and barriers to follow-up care.

But other ones are harder to avoid, especially if they are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, or the materials we use to do our jobs. Scientists are studying which exposures may cause or contribute to the development of cancer.

Development-induced displacement and resettlement (DIDR) occurs when people are forced to leave their homes and/or land as a result of development. This subset of forced migration has been historically associated with the construction of dams for hydroelectric power and irrigation but is also the result of various development projects such as mining, agriculture, the creation of military.

So, though much of cancer has a cause that is related to genetics, most cancer is also preventable. The factors that cause cancer are largely from sources outside the body and include so-called "lifestyle" factors as well as environmental agents such as chemicals and radiation and, in some cases, infectious agents (1, 2, 3).
