In 28 chapters, Global Epidemiology of Cancer provides a basic overview of the most commonly occurring cancers, their worldwide incidence, and mortality.  Designed for the health sciences, particularly those in epidemiology, public health, and medicine, this comprehensive resource is ideal as a primary text for an overview course or seminar on Cancer or Cancer epidemiology.

Key Features:

  • Backed with research and draws upon worldwide information to address the global landscape of cancer.
  • Offers clear, concise descriptions of each specific type of oncologic disease as well as its epidemiology, etiology, risk factors and preventive factors
  • Includes a wealth of information on the pathogenesis of the disease as we currently understand it at the molecular level.

Dr. Harris has written 135 peer reviewed scientific articles, numerous book chapters, and edited two major textbooks on the role of inflammation in the etiopathogenesis of cancer and other chronic diseases. His research shows that inhibition of the inducible cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) gene has powerful anti-neoplastic effects against major forms of cancer. In recognition of this work, he was elected a  Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science by his peers.
