Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals in Cancer Prevention
edited by Ronald R. Watson

Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals in Cancer Prevention brings together a leading group of experts on the different aspects of nutrient supplementation, foods, and plant extracts in cancer prevention and treatment. Their conclusions and recommendations present the most current knowledge from which to springboard future research and create a scientific database for accurate health claims.

Coverage includes:

  • Nutrition and diet as factors affecting cancer risk or as a feature of cancer treatment
  • Specific vegetables, diseases, and cancers
  • The benefits and uses of extracts or complex mixtures of vegetables and herbs
  • Educating the public and changing dietary behavior
  • Specialized diets focused on components of fruits and vegetables such as dietary fiber or phytoestrogens

This up-to-date resource is a must-have for research professionals, both basic and applied, and marketers in the worldwide functional foods/nutritional supplements industry. It is an essential reference for hospital-based dietitians and nutritionists, physicians specializing in oncology, and cancer researchers. Food and drug officials who determine allowable health claims need this information as well, as do academics in all of these fields.
