Dr Paolo Vineis - Imperial College, London, UK

Dr Vineis speaks with ecancertv at IARC 2016 about the exposome, changes in patient biology as a result of damage acquired through environment or behaviour rather than a transcriptional mutation.

He describes the efforts to investigate the impact of dietary, contamination and air pollution on global cancer incidence, given that an estimated 50% of cancers may be preventable.
