Dietary Cancer Prevention Strategies--What Works?

Dietary factors are second only to tobacco as preventable causes of cancer in the U.S., but the potential for specific dietary components to actually be chemoprotective is not as well established. This talk will focus on three key aspects of dietary cancer prevention: 1) the bioactive components of foods with the potential to be chemopreventative, 2) how preventing nutritional deficiencies can protect against carcinogenesis, and 3) how our overall dietary patterns influence our risk of cancer development. McKale Montgomery, Ph.D., RD Assistant Professor, Nutritional Sciences
