Nutrition and Cancer Prevention
New Insights in the Role of Phytochemcials
edited under the auspices of the
American Institute for Cancer Research

Recent advances have contributed to our understanding of how a plant-based diet confers many health advantages and how substances from plants may be effective in the prevention of specific cancers. The Ninth Annual Research Conference of the American Institute for Cancer Research has focused on the latest developments in several categories of nutrients of wide contemporary interests.

Nutrition and Cancer Prevention: New Insights in the Role of Phytochemcials includes such topics from this conference as the effects of soy, green tea, selenium, wine, grapes, and spices in cancer prevention.

Discussion also includes the current status of herbal products in relation to cancer prevention, in recognition of the increasing attention that complementary and alternative medicine has been receiving from the scientific community as well as the general public. A separate presentation addresses the issue of nutritional supplements and cancer prevention.
