  1. Cancer ecology in Kerala, India.

    Article - En anglais

    Studies carried out on the spatial distribution of cancer in India reveal a high intensity zone of cancer in Kerala, especially in respect of tumours of the oral cavity, pharynx and respiratory system.

    It is suggested that an ecological approach involving the study of environmental deficiencies or overloads of minerals and radio-active elements in the soil and dietary habits, could provide useful guidelines for the control of cancer in Kerala.
