This textbook will provide our readers with insights on cancer, science, and nutrition. It begins with a discussion of xenobiotic residues, which are present in food and cancer, and then moves on to a detailed discussion of the study and science of phytochemicals that are responsible for preventing cancer. Additional discussions delve into cancer biomarkers and strategies for early diagnosis, a variety of foods and their cancer-preventive properties, and various dietary factors that increase or decrease cancer risk. The alphabetized glossary at the end of the textbook provides definitions for terms that have been conveniently highlighted in the chapters.
