Nutritional Oncology. Holland. 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.

John Fenwick Anderson Blackburn (born Northumberland, 26 June 1923; died Richmond, London, 1993) was a British novelist who wrote thrillers, and horror novels. Blackburn was described as "today's Master of Horror" by The Times Literary Supplement. Many of his books feature stock characters, including General Charles Kirk of British Intelligence and his friends, the scientist Sir Marcus Levin and his Russian wife Tania.

Nutritional oncology is an increasingly active interdisciplinary field where cancer is investigated as both a systemic and local disease originating with the changes in the genome and progressing through a multi-step process which may be influenced at many points in its natural history by nutritional factors that could impact the prevention of cancer, the quality of life of cancer patients, and the risk of cancer recurrence in the rapidly increasing population of cancer survivors.Since the first edition of this book was published in 1999, the idea that there is a single gene pathway or single drug will provide a cure for cancer has given way to the general view that dietary/environmental factors impact the progression of genetic and cellular changes in common forms of cancer. This broad concept can now be investigated within a basic and clinical research context for specific types of cancer. This book attempts to cover the current available knowledge in this new field of nutritional oncology written by invited experts. This book attempts to provide not only the theoretical and research basis for nutritional oncology, but will offer the medical oncologist and other members of multidisciplinary groups treating cancer patients practical information on nutrition assessment and nutritional regimens, including micronutrient and phytochemical supplementation. The editors hope that this volume will stimulate increased research, education and patient application of the principles of nutritional oncology.NEW TO THIS EDITION:* Covers hot new topics of nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics in cancer cell growth * Includes new chapters on metabolic networks in cancer cell growth, nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics* Presents substantially revised chapters on breast cancer and nutrition, prostate cancer and nutrition, and colon cancer and nutrition* Includes new illustrations throughout the text, especially in the breast cancer chapter * Includes integrated insights into the unanswered questions and clearly defined objectives of research in nutritional oncology * Offers practical guidelines for clinicians advising malnourished cancer patients and cancer survivors on diet, nutrition, and lifestyle * Provides information on the role of bioactive substances, dietary supplements, phytochemicals and botanicals in cancer prevention and treatment

This text is written for the cancer/nutrition specialist and assumes an adequate background in state of the art nutrition and cancer science. This is not a text for the uninitiated, however, it does not go far enough to inform the specialized reader in the wealth of knowledge available on nutrient signaling molecules and their role in normal cell cycle controls. It pays lip service to the role of non-calorie nutrient signal processing in health and disease while holding firm to status quo pharmaceutical medicine. This is to be expected and, while not terribly disappointing, it was informative. This makes this text a great way for an orthodox physician to become acquainted with nutrition as applied to oncology. It also can give the academically prepared nutritionist insight into the cellular mechanisms of cancer where nutritional therapies may have their actions. No text of this magnitude is without merits. Given the cost of this text, I would still buy it and read it and be all the better for the experience.
grand star
The latest references I could find in the new chapters were 5-6 years old when it came out, and so a decade old now, and in the original chapters they were 20 years old. A book this expensive should at least make the pretense of being up to date. In fact, UptoDate is a much better source of information.
An excellent and thorough academic book on nutritional oncology. The language used is very technical, so I would recommend that only health professionals purchase this book.
I think this book should a part of your library if you are studying a health major....
I found this textbook to be invaluable as I prepared to make an academic prsentation on nutrition and cancer.
