Chronic diseases such as cancer and other non-communicable diseases are fast replacing communicable diseases in India and other developing countries. Tobacco is the most important identified cause of cancer followed by dietary practices, inadequate physical activity, alcohol consumption, infections due to viruses and sexual behavior. Diet is now considered a major weapon against cancer. Recent research indicates that what you eat may help to significantly reduce your cancer risk. Nutrition education is important for increasing public awareness, promoting good health and for control of cancers. A combination of foods in a predominantly plant based diet interact in ways that boost their individual anticancer effects.
