The Effect of Diet on the Risk of Cancer

This review on the effect of diet and cancer concludes that a diet rich in fruit, vegetables and cereals most likely helps prevent several types of cancer. Also important is maintaining a healthy bodyweight, regular physical activity, and a restriction on the consumption of alcohol. The authors state that diet-related factors are thought to account for about 30% of cancers in developed countries. [ Lancet 2002; 360: 861-68 ]
