Previous efforts to report estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in India and its different parts include the National Cancer Registry Programme Reports, Sample Registration System cause of death findings, Cancer Incidence in Five Continents Series, and GLOBOCAN. We present a comprehensive picture of the patterns and time trends of the burden of total cancer and specific cancer types in each state of India estimated as part of the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) 2016 because such a systematic compilation is not readily available.

Cancer is a major cause of death in children worldwide, and the recorded incidence tends to increase with time. Internationally comparable data on childhood cancer incidence in the past two decades are scarce. This study aimed to provide internationally comparable local data on the incidence of childhood cancer to promote research of causes and implementation of childhood cancer control.

In May, 2016, a Working Group of 23 scientists from ten countries met at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France, to evaluate the carcinogenicity of drinking coffee, mate, and very hot beverages. These assessments will be published in volume 116 of the IARC Monographs.

In June, 2014, 20 experts from nine countries met at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC; Lyon, France) to assess the carcinogenicity of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), tetrafluoroethylene (TFE), dichloromethane (DCM), 1,2-dichloropropane (1,2-DCP), and 1,3-propane sultone (1,3-PS). These assessments will be published as volume 110 of the IARC Monographs.

Ambient air pollution is suspected to cause lung cancer. We aimed to assess the association between long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and lung cancer incidence in European populations. This prospective analysis of data obtained by the European Study of Cohorts for Air Pollution Effects used data from 17 cohort studies based in nine European countries. Baseline addresses were geocoded and we assessed air

In October, 2009, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) completed a review of the more than 100 agents classified as “carcinogenic to humans” (Group 1). These assessments will be published in six parts as Volume 100 of the IARC Monographs (Volumes 100A—F).
