Reprogrammed metabolism and diet  

This chapter highlights the role of diet in cancer prevention and causation. It explores our understanding that some food constituents exert their cancer-relevant effects by their ability to regulate gene expression: a paradigm of how environmental factors work together with genes, rather than the concept of environment versus genes. The chapter also describes the new therapeutic approaches that exploit our knowledge of reprogrammed metabolism and the molecular mechanisms of food constituents. The chapter then shifts to demonstrate the preventative factors of diet and causative factors of diet. It also investigates the link between nutrients, cancer, and hormone action. Next, the chapter addresses the drug strategies that target metabolic pathways. It also considers “enhanced” foods and dietary supplements for chemoprevention.
