Nutrition in Cancer Care

Diet is a recognized etiological factor. Cancer is a complex process in which molecular, biological, nutritional and chemical irritations have a role. The interplay among diet, environment and genetic predisposition is important in most diseases. Dietary ingredients may induce or inhibit these carcinogens. Dietary factors have an important but complex role, which includes excessive energy intake, and possibly a high consumption of saturated fat and protein and a low consumption of dietary fiber and micronutrients. It has been shown that caloric (i.e. energy) restriction will inhibit the growth of spontaneous or experimentally induced tumours.
