  • Deftly connects the state-of-the-art research in epigenetics and energy balance with cancer
  • Authoritatively explains the processes involved in epigenetic modifications of DNA, which aspects of energy balance induce these changes, how they affect chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes, and how these changes impact cancer in general and in specific organ systems
  • Evaluates how epigenetic changes may impact cancer prevention and control and how such changes may serve as therapeutic targets

About this book

This volume of Energy Balance and Cancer provides state-of-the-art descriptions of the rapidly evolving science of epigenetics and how it may explain mechanisms by which alterations in energy balance such as obesity and physical activity may impact cancer. In addition to chapters explaining the processes mediating epigenetic regulation, the volume contains a series of chapters explaining how environmental influences including early life events, nutrition, exercise and microbiota may induce epigenetic changes that can affect carcinogenesis. The following chapters describe epigenetic relations of energy balance to cancer in distinct organ systems including esophagus, colon, prostate and breast. Epigenetics, Energy Balance and Cancer provides a valuable resource for students, research investigators and clinicians seeking to better understand these processes as well as a basis for novel translational and transdisciplinary approaches to further elucidate these processes and develop preventive and therapeutic strategies.
