Nutrition and Cancer : Introduction for the third edition


Considerable time has passed since the original publication of this title (1995) and its second printing (1998). During the early 1990s there was an urgent need to provide professional researchers, medical professionals and cancer patients with reputable published research regarding the many proven facts and demonstrable associations in the giant field of Nutrition and Cancer.
In fact, when I compiled the original database for the Bristol Cancer Help Centre in 1993/94, there were over 5000 database entries from Medline just covering the preceding seven years!

In fact, with the passage of the EU Supplement Directive in 2002, gravely restricting specific supplements and their dosages available to consumers, the fight for the right of the public to protect their health by taking nutritional supplements looms large for the foreseeable future.
