Ethnoepidemiology, a new area of study in the field of cancer prevention and treatment, considers characteristic behavior patterns and physical and cultural factors that may be associated with some types of cancers. This exciting new field, which brings aspects of epidemiology, ethnology, ecology, virology, immunology, and molecular biology together in search of global cancer patterns, was the subject of a recent symposium of the Japanese Cancer Association. This book reports and expands upon the topics discussed at the symposium.
