What: The 10th AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research will bring together scientists to share the latest findings in genetics, chemoprevention and lifestyle choices that may prevent cancer.

  • Lifetime weight gain and the risk of pancreatic and endometrial cancer;
  • Results of a Phase III chemoprevention trial in melanoma;
  • How coffee affects risk of skin cancer;
  • If hot dogs really do increase your risk of colon cancer;
  • New data from the Women's Health Initiative on NSAID use and colon cancer mortality;
  • Why how much you drink can affect your risk of bladder cancer;
  • New findings on how indoor tanning increases the risk of skin cancer; and
