This text reports the author's research on the theory that estrogen deficiency may be a contributing factor to the onset of oral cancer. Eight chapters cover topics that include: global trends in oral cancer epidemiology in the 20th century; the role of estrogen in health and disease; re-evaluation of the epidemiological associations of female sexual steroids and cancer risk; insulin resistance, estrogen deficiency, and cancer risk; and hormonal and metabolic risk factors for oral cancer among non-smoker, non-drinker women. The chapters are well-referenced and a prologue and epilogue provide explanation of the motivation for the studies. The author's credentials are not noted.
