About this book

Because of the wealth of new information generated by the scientific community during the last decade on the role of nutrition on cancer risk, this book provides a forum for presentation and discussion of recent scientific data and highlights a set of dietary recommendations. Bioactive Compounds and Cancer presents chapters that highlight laboratory and clinical findings on how selected nutrients function as signaling molecules and, as such, influence cellular behavior and cancer predisposition. This important compendium focuses on understanding the role of nutrition in cancer biology, the molecular action of bioactive food components and xenobiotics on cancer risk, the role of dietary components in cancer prevention and/or treatment, and nutrition education with the most up to date dietary recommendations that may reduce cancer risk. This volume will be of interest to specialized health professionals, clinicians, nurses, basic and clinical researchers, graduate students, and health officials of public and private organizations.
