Introduction: Screening is an action direct to the asymptomatic population in the subclinical phase of the problem in question. The purpose of screening is to reduce the incidence of cancer in the population, detecting the disease in its early stages dormant. Usually, the screening test is less invasive, so the operating characteristics of the test, coupled with the prevalence of the di...
The objectives of this post-doctoral project are (1) to estimate the effect of different types, intensities and periods of life of physical activity on the risk of cancer; (2) to evaluate the costs of the Brazilian public health system with the treatment of cancers that could potentially be saved by increasing physical activity. For the first objective of the project, we will use data f...

Methods: Study 1: we will performe a review (overview) of systematic reviews through a search on 5 databases with descriptors related to exposure ("physical inactivity") and ...
