Special Issue Introduction
Despite the tremendous achievements in cancer research in the last few decades, cancer remains a major disease burden. The GLOBOCAN 2020 projected about 28.4 million cancer cases in 2040. Lifestyle changes contribute significantly to the increased global cancer burden. Genetics and lifestyle factors contribute to the entire cancer control continuum, from cancer etiology, prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship to end of life. However, recommendations of healthy lifestyles for cancer patients and how the interplay between genetics and lifestyles affect the cancer control continuum have not been well-studied. For example, while individuals may be at high genetic risk of cancer, adopting healthy lifestyles may attenuate their risk. Furthermore, integrating omics, bioinformatics, and lifestyle factors will certainly boost cancer research across the continuum.
The special issue on " Genetics and Life Styles in Cancer: From Etiology to Clinical Outcome" addresses a number of topics focused on integrating multimodal genetic data with lifestyle factors and the formation of healthy lifestyle recommendations in cancer research.
