International Scientific Conference on Childhood Leukaemia
the incidence, causal mechanisms and possible methods of prevention
Held at Westminster, London, 6 - 10 September 2004

Leukaemia is Britain's biggest child killer disease. The incidence of leukaemia and some other childhood cancers in developed nations has been rising at around 1 to 3% per year for the past 50 years. This international five-day meeting examined environmental and other life factors affecting the incidence of childhood leukaemia and other cancers. It explored the latest thinking on possible mechanisms of action across a range of scientific disciplines. Topics included the effects of ionising and non-ionising radiation, pollutants in air and food, infections and modern lifestyles. It also compared how the precautionary principle is applied to different hazards and identified future research priorities.

This leading-edge conference on the latest world research was intended for scientific and medical professionals. In addition to invited talks from world-leading scientists, posters were of critical importance.
