Outline of Research Activities

Various factors related to carcinogenesis have been studied in this laboratory. Many substances existing in the environment take an important role in carcinogenesis. The hazard of smoking, diesel exhaust gas, asbestos and foods were identified and assessed. It is most important in the prevention of cancer to investigate the action of risk factors and inhibitory factors which hosts can control. Eating habits which are deeply related to carcinogenesis are good examples of such factors. The relationship between changes in eating habits and cancer is investigated.
