Nutrition and Cancer

The field of inquiry of the role of nutrition in the cancer process is very extensive. It is becoming clearer as research continues that nutrition dramas a major role in cancer. It has been estimated by the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund that 30–40 per cent of all cancers can be prevented by appropriate diets, physical activity, and maintenance of appropriate body weight. It is likely to be higher than this for some individual cancers. Most of the research on nutrition and cancer has been reductionist; that is, a particular food or a nutrient has been deliberate in relation to its impact on tumour formation/regression or some other end point of cancer at a particular site in the body. These studies are very obliging in seeing the details of the mechanisms of disease. However, they do not benefit give an overall picture of how to prevent cancer on a dietary level. Even less, they tell little of how to eat once a person already has a cancer and would like to eat a diet that is favourable to their recovery.
