Smoking tobacco is a well-established risk factor for bladder cancer. Yet so many BCAN patients have never smoked. What are the other factors that influence risk of this disease? And, can any of them be avoided?
In this webinar, Dr. Debra Silverman, Chief of the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch within the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute, will share the latest science linking bladder cancer with exposure to a range of occupational and environmental carcinogens. Dr. Silverman will concentrate much of her talk on exposure to water pollutants and bladder cancer – a focus of her recent research.
Brief reflections and remarks regarding what this evidence means for advancing bladder cancer prevention efforts will be offered by Lynn Thorp, National Campaign Director at Clean Water Action and Dr. Polly Hoppin, Research Professor at the University of Massachusetts Lowell’s Department of Public Health and on the Leadership Council of the Cancer Free Economy Network
