  • Genes, Cancer, and Ethics in the Work Environment

    Sheldon W. Samuels
    Arthur C. Upton, MD

    New discoveries in how cells change to become seeds of cancer have profound implications for the health of workers and others exposed to environmental carcinogens. The development of these technologies is traced here for the first time in the context of Dr. Irving J. Selikoffs agenda for prevention and treatment in occupational and environmental medicine. Original papers and commentary by Dr. Selikoff, and an international spectrum of leading experts, explore the changing nature of occupational and environmental oncology. Specific agents and methods, including the possible role of viruses and genetic testing, are shown to provide not only scientific opportunities, but also ethical challenges.
