Physical activity and gastric cancer: so what? An epidemiologist's confession

, : Physical activity and gastric cancer: so what? An epidemiologist's confession. Cancer Prevention Research 7(1): 9-11

This commentary is a personal reflection by an epidemiologist on the shortcomings of this disease-oriented approach to prevention.
