Diet and cancer are definitely associated. It has been estimated that 35 percent of cancer deaths might be related to dietary factors. 80–90% of cancers are caused by environmental factors, and of these, 30–40% of cancers are directly linked to the patient’s diet. Studies conducted over the years have shown a strong correlation between diet and cancer. A comprehensive worldwide report ‘Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Prevention of Cancer: a Global Perspective’ compiled by World Cancer Research Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research says that there is significant relation between lifestyle, including food consumption, and cancer prevention. The same report recommends we eat mostly foods of plant origin and should aim to meet nutritional needs through diet alone. We should limit our consumption of cholesterol-dense foods, red meat, alcoholic drinks and salt, and completely avoid sugary drinks and processed meat.
