Human chemical carcinogenesis is a multistage process that results from exposures, usually in the form of complex chemical mixtures, often encountered in the environment or through our lifestyle and diet (Table 17-1). A prime example is tobacco smoke, which can cause cancers of the lung, bladder, head, and neck.
