World Cancer Report 2014
Edited by Bernard W. Stewart and Christopher P. Wild
A new feature of World Cancer Report 2014 that distinguishes it from previous editions is the inclusion of a series of "Perspectives" chapters written by those whose record of outstanding achievement qualifies them as individuals having unique vision.
Such prominent investigators were invited to provide a personal viewpoint about future directions for cancer research. The perspectives offered are both distinctive and challenging, and serve to indicate the variety of issues immediately relevant to cancer control that either remain as challenges for further research or have yet to achieve their full potential by comprehensive implementation.
The authors and topics of the seven Perspectives chapters included in World Cancer Report 2014 are:
Elizabeth H. Blackburn - Reconciling stress and cancer: insights from telomeres
Mel Greaves - An evolutionary foundation for cancer control
Walter C. Willett - Diet, nutrition, and cancer: where next for public health?
