Carcinogens and Anticarcinogens

  • Bruce N. Ames
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 39)


There is the potential for major progress in the prevention of cancer in the next 5 or 10 years. In the short term, progress in the prevention of cancer depends on a better understanding of some of the risk factors and antirisk factors for the major human cancers. In the longer term, the spectacular progress in molecular biology is in understanding some of the fundamental aspects of the nature of cancer which should contribute substantially to further intervention possibilities.
