Nutritional Oncology defines this rapidly emerging area of tremendous interest to researchers, a field poised to become a subfield of oncology. This reference provides an assessment of nutritional impact on the development and growth of cancer (or the prevention of such development and growth) as well as its role in cancer treatment. In addition to an overall discussion of nutrition and cancer, the book discusses specific nutrients and classes of nutrients. It also covers various clinical trials in nutritional care.
