Dr Mark Miller - UCSF, San Francisco, USA

Dr Miller meets with ecancertv at Childhood Cancer 2016 to discuss a survey of healthcare providers that revealed a gap in information about environmental risk factors for childhood cancer.

Air pollution, folate levels and tobacco use are among the factors that affect family's risk even pre-conception.

Dr Miller describes the need for wider awareness and public engagement by oncologists on regional and national levels to communicate preventative behaviours more fully.

The mechanism by which environmental exposure can result in tumourigenic DNA damage is discussed by Jessica Timms here.
