Food and Cancer Prevention is the first book to be published on this subject and represents the current state of the art. It is interdisciplinary in scope and provides researchers from around the world with the opportunity to bring themselves up to date with developments in this vital area. Epidemiological evidence makes it clear that diet can protect against cancer, as well as promote it, and developments in molecular and cell biology have led to an increased understanding of cell proliferation and differentiation, yet there remains much to learn about the impact of diet on basic biological mechanisms. This book was created to explore such issues and will help the reader to identify research opportunities and assess research priorities. Food and Cancer Prevention covers a topic which is attracting considerable attention and aims to promote constructive collaboration among clinicians, toxicologists, nutritionists, food scientists, epidemiologists and plant scientists worldwide. It is essential reading for anyone involved in research into this subject and will also be of interest to government departments, with a view to legislation, and food manufacturers producing functional, novel or health foods.
