  • Provides the latest research to identify cancer disparities in different groups in the U.S. and around the world
  • Explores biological and behavioral factors which cause cancer disparities, including obesity, insulin resistance, sedentary behaviors, and sleep
  • First major volume entirely devoted to the contributions of energy balance to cancer disparities
This volume reviews disparities in cancer genetics, etiology, treatment and survivorship that are associated with differences in energy balance and how those differences and disparities may be affected by geography, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, biology, behavior and others. State-of-the-art strategies are outlined to alter these problems at the individual, community and policy levels. The book provides a comprehensive assessment of the multiple contributions of disparities in energy balance and how they affect cancer. this volume should constitute a valuable resource to disparity focused investigators at all levels and serve s an important guide to professionals that deal with these issues, especially those who determine and implement policy.
