This comprehensive work explores a unique and often overlooked aspect of human cancer development and nutrition--namely, naturally occurring carcinogens in foods, focusing specifically on those associated with cooking or thermal processing. This book covers carcinogenicity of mutagens from cooked meats; dietary factors affecting spontaneous chromosomal damage in man; genotoxic mechanisms of fecapentaene-12 in human cells; antimutagenic/anticarcinogenic food components; updated legislative and regulatory perspectives from Japan, Europe and the U.S., and more.
