Book Description :

Cancers in the Urban Environment: How Malignant Diseases Are Caused and Distributed among the Diverse People and Neighborhoods of a Major Global Metropolis, Second Edition, provides a detailed description of the occurrence of common forms of cancer in the ethnically, socially and environmentally complex milieu of a modern urban complex. The location is Los Angeles County, and the patterns of 72 different malignancies are described according to race, age, sex, social class calendar time (since 1972) and most notably, individual neighborhood, using detailed maps of high risk. This second edition uses twice as many cases and more demographic diversity. Physicians and scientific investigators in California and elsewhere can use the material provided to counsel patients and evaluate the consistency of any specific pattern of occurrence with each specific causal hypothesis. A detailed appendix describes the source of data, provides the basis for the choices made in the production of the volume, and gives a perspective on the search for "clusters" of malignancy. Compares different types of cancers with respect to the degree of non-random occurrence Contains numerous maps detailing the demographic and geographic pattern of cancer occurrence in Los Angeles County Provides an empirical perspective on the search for disease "clusters"

Book Description :

These pages contain a number of chapters from specialists in the field who consider, from a number of different perspectives, the currently available evidence that supports the environmental cancer aetiology hypothesis. This constitutes the first part of the book. In the second part of the book, an examination of the policy implications of accepting that the cancer epidemic may essentially be preventable is presented. This will pose some difficult problems for politicians and decision-makers, who will have to consider adopting policies that may damage the economy in the short term in order to reap health benefits which will only become apparent several decades in the future.

Book Description :

This volume, the first in the new series Cancer Prevention - Cancer Causes, is derived from the 1st and 2nd Reports of the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention published in Cancer Causes and Control, 1996; 7(Suppl 1) and 1997; 8(Suppl 2), respectively. In this volume we expand on materials to summarize the evidence on causes of cancer and to set forth a series of strategies to promote the prevention of cancer. Cancer Prevention - Cancer Causes is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of what we know about cancer risk in the United States (and other established market economies) and the preventive measures we can take to reduce the burden of cancer. In the first half of this volume, we review the causes of human cancer considering a wide range of potential sources of risk such as smoking, diet, sedentary lifestyle, occupational factors, viruses, and alcohol. We conclude that cancer is indeed preventable. Over 50 percent of cancers could be prevented if we could implement what we already know about the causes of cancer. In the second half of this volume, we summarize research on prevention programs, public education campaigns, and social policy measures for preventing cancer. Working in schools, health clinics, and workplaces as well as through the mass media and in the political arena, social scientists and health educators are designing innovative and effective health promotion programs to help people quit smoking, eat more healthily, and exercise more.

Book Description :

Power Production: What Are the Risks? includes completely new chapters to take into account the nuclear accident at Chernobyl, the disaster at Piper Alpha, and the much debated problems of acid rain and the greenhouse effect. The book evaluates the risks involved in using coal and oil-fired generation of nuclear and hydro power. The author contends that in our modern industrial society the risks of power production are less than the consequences of having insufficient supplies of power. He uses technical data from many fields of research to estimate the risks to the public from both renewable and nonrenewable sources.

Book Description :

No other textbook provides coverage of the essential concepts of disease processes and disorders with the specific needs of the physical therapy assistant in mind. Pathology for the Physical Therapist Assistant provides coverage of disease processes and systemic disorders as well as guidelines, precautions, and contraindications for physical therapy interventions. Catherine Goodman, Kenda Fuller, and Robbie O’Shea share their expertise in a consistent, well-organized approach that defines each disorder, describes the appropriate physical therapy assessment and intervention, and rounds out the discussion with relevant case study examples based on established practice patterns. Chapters follow a consistent organization, first defining a disorder and then describing the appropriate physical therapy assessment and intervention. Full-color art throughout clearly depicts pathologies and interventions. Case studies provide examples of physical therapy applications to help you connect theory and practice and build strong clinical reasoning skills. Special boxes highlight Clinical Signs, Interventions, and Case Studies to alert you to important information within the text. Terminology and language from the Guide to Physical Therapy Practice is used throughout to familiarize you with standardized terminology used in practice. A companion Evolve website provides additional online learning activities including online chapters, references linked to Medline, case studies, and self-test questions.

Book Description :

This atlas shows the relationship between water pollution and cancer in the Huai River Basin in China over the last 30 years. Drawing on a five-year study conducted by the China Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Professor Gonghuan Yang & Dafang Zhuang present a spatial and longitudinal analysis of regular pollution monitoring and disease surveillance data. A review of variation in trends in the causes of death in the Huai River Basin over the past 30 years shows that precisely those areas which were the most seriously polluted for the longest time were the areas with the highest increase in digestive cancer deaths – several times that of the national average increase for the respective cancers. Spatial analysis shows a high level of correspondence between the seriously polluted areas and areas with high mortality from cancer, the most important finding in the atlas. Dr. Gonghuan Yang is a Professor at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. She serves as Director of the Center of NCD & BRFS of the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Chinese Academy of Medical Science, Beijing, China. She is an expert on Public Health and an epidemiologist focusing on chronic non-communicable diseases. Dr. Dafang Zhuang is a Professor at the Institute of Geographical Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China. He is an expert of geographical information system and its application in correlating public health with environmental changes.
