Description: Nutritional Oncology is an emerging field with great significance for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Over the last decade, the number of medical oncologists, nurses, dietitians, and basic scientists concerned with this field has increased markedly. Molecular biology and genetics remain central to this interdisciplinary field which integrates basic science and its clinical application. Cancer results from the expression of genomic changes. Nutritional oncology seeks to modify the environmental factors influencing these genetic changes and their expression at every stage of carcinogenesis, from initiation of the cancer cell to its metastatic spread to other areas of the body.In this regard, nutritional oncology is relevant to some of the most common forms of cancer including, breast, prostate, colon, ovarian, uterine, and pancreatic cancers.

Nutritional Oncology defines this rapidly emerging area of tremendous interest to researchers, a field poised to become a subfield of oncology. This reference provides an assessment of nutritional impact on the development and growth of cancer (or the prevention of such development and growth) as well as its role in cancer treatment. In addition to an overall discussion of nutrition and cancer, the book discusses specific nutrients and classes of nutrients. It also covers various clinical trials in nutritional care.
