Document Abstract:
Cancer accounts for 25% of all deaths in the UK, and this proportion is still increasing especially among females. The development of cancer (carcinogenesis) involves a multi-stage process, and although genetic factors influence individual predisposition to cancer development, there is a growing body of evidence to suggest that environmental factors (80%) are responsible for a large proportion of cancers. This paper briefly discusses the evidence for the role of dietary (70%) influences in protecting against the long-term risk of cancer
