A mythology has long reigned among many practitioners that knowledge about an occupational and environmental illness like lead poisoning, once established in one nation, authomatically spreads elsewhere. More recently, an alternative proposition has consolidated among social scientists, that knowledge such as that about lead poisoning has to always be rediscovered in a particular nation for it to spread. By looking at some early evidence from an ongoing comparative study of the development both of hazards and of knowledge about lead poisoning in the United States versus Mexico, Sellers will seek a middle ground between these two approaches to knowledge dissemination in occupational and environmental health.

Prostate Cancer detection and screening have been main sources of controversy for the past 2 decades. Voices pro and con were arguing whether PSA screening would or could reduce prostate cancer mortality. Recently 2 large randomized studies, the ERSPC and the PLCO, one in Europe and one in the U.S. addressed the matter in a scientific manner and answered some of the issues raised. In addition, the validity of PSA as a detection marker has been questioned, as much as its power as a screening tool. Thus, the major topics today remain whether PSA is to be used as it was before, and whether screening has an impact on prostate cancer overall. Finally, can we do something to influence the natural history? From environmental to new drug compounds, what can we do to prevent prostate cancer in 2010 and the years to come.
