During the past decade, a significant amount of research has been conducted on phytopharmaceuticals. Today, a growing body of evidence demonstrates the efficacy of a wide variety of natural products and affirms their potential in the treatment of cancer.

Phytopharmaceuticals in Cancer Chemoprevention focuses on the role of natural supplements in cancer prevention and therapy. The first section covers cancer epidemiology, as well as cancer statistics, current therapies, and potential toxicities involved with existing cancer drugs. The second section begins by discussing the pathophysiology of cancer including mechanistic and molecular aspects of cancer biology, and then explains the etiology of breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, tobacco and cancer, and gastrointestinal tract cancers, and concludes with the various risk factors related to obesity, exercise and aging. The third section covers phytopharmaceuticals and focuses on cancer health risk factors and the protective abilities of various natural products. The final section features commentary on cancer susceptibility and the value of natural remedies for healthy living.

With contributions from a diverse panel of renowned scientists and cancer biologists, this book covers a broad spectrum of phytopharmaceuticals in relation to their prospective roles in the future of cancer prevention and treatment. It is a valuable resource for nutrition scientists, oncologists, and dietitians in their efforts to conquer the challenge of cancer.
