In the process of industrialization and urbanization, the phenomenon of cancer villages appears in many places of China. Although the relationship between pollution and cancer is hard to distinguish in most of those cancer villages, villagers, media and local government all agree that high incidence of cancer is related to environmental pollution, and especially and mostly with industrial pollution. Cancer villages already exist as a fact of social life and affect the lives of villagers, prompting action by government. The authors comprehensively analyse the relationship of cancer incidence, environmental pollution and lifestyle habits of villagers, drawing on sociological theory and method. They present the phenomenon of cancer villages in the particular current Chinese social, economic and cultural contexts and provide a wealth of informed analysis. It is of particular interest to those concerned with the impact of the environment on health.
