The search for the links between diet, nutritional and metabolic factors and cancer aetiology is an area of research that has attracted increasing attention from both scientific and public health points of view. This collection covers recent research and developments in the field.
Long Description
The search for the links between diet, nutritional and metabolic factors and cancer etiology is an area of research which, over the past two decades, has attracted increasing attention from both scientific and public health points of view. In the 1980s the European Union created the Europe Against Cancer Program which identified nutrition as one of the highest priority areas for cancer formulated, which also included nutritional advice, and it was decided to promote majornew epidemiological studies on nutrition and cancer. This resulted in the support that the Europe Against Cancer Program provided for the realization of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) which involves about half a million volunteers in 10 European countries.About ten years later, the Directorate General for Public Health and Consumer Protection of the EU supported the European Conference on Nutrition and Cancer which took place in June 2001, and the publication of this book which offers the opportunity to examine the relationship between nutrition and cancer with a multidisciplinary and multifactorial approach encompassing nutritional research, endcrinology, carcinogenesis, molecular biology and genetics.
Main Description
The search for the links between diet, nutritional and metabolic factors and cancer aetiology is an area of research, which over the past two decades has attracted increasing attention both from a scientific and a public health point of view. In this context, the Europe Against Cancer Program has supported the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC), a study involving about half a million volunteers in 10 European countries. This book, derived from the European Conference on Nutrition and Cancer (IARC, Lyon 2001, with the support by the Directorate General for Public Health and Consumer Protection of the EU), gives an update of recent scientific developments in the field. It examines the relationship between nutrition and cancer with a multidisciplinary and multifactorial approach encompassing nutritional research, endocrinology, carcinogenesis, molecular biology and genetics.
