Summary:
This volume brings together the full spectrum of issues relating to the primary prevention of skin cancer from a population and public health perspective. The book examines possible mechanisms of causation and the role of risk factors in the host and presents experimental and human evidence for the carcinogenicity of solar radiation. Sources of UVR and ways of minimising exposure are described, behavioural  Read more...

   schema:description "This volume brings together the full spectrum of issues relating to the primary prevention of skin cancer from a population and public health perspective. The book examines possible mechanisms of causation and the role of risk factors in the host and presents experimental and human evidence for the carcinogenicity of solar radiation. Sources of UVR and ways of minimising exposure are described, behavioural considerations and the efficacy of behavioural interventions to reduce exposure are reviewed and the economic impact of preventive programs discussed. Current critical reviews of the ozone depletion situation, the genetics of skin cancer, use of solaria and the use and efficacy of sunscreens are featured as special topics. All authors have drawn from their material implications for programs to prevent skin cancer. An essential reference/handbook for public health and health promotion practitioners and researchers, this book will also be of interest to dermatologists, epidemiologists and anyone with an interest in the prevention of skin cancer."@en ;
