THE LINK BETWEEN DIET AND CANCER
Cancer has gradually become one of the most important pathologies associated with both significant physical or psychological suffering and important financial costs that put a strain on economy. Identifying cancer risk factors is a constant goal of many epidemiological studies and recent data indicates that lifestyle is a major contributor to the general increase in cancer incidence. Currently, diet, obesity and the lack of physical exercise are believed to be responsible for at least 35% of all human cancers. In under-developed countries, a diet that lacks certain nutrients and vitamins, together with improper conditions for food storage and other discrepancies between food requirements and daily intake are the main mechanisms responsible for diet-related cancer. In developed countries, high-fat, sugary diet, food additives and obesity are believed to increase cancer risk.
