Topic

Nutrition takes an important part in the formation of several types of cancer. Approximately 35% of human cancers is attributed to nutrition factors. The importance of these factors and the way of their action is discussed during the course. After the theoretical introduction the human epidemiological results are interpreted and practical pieces of advice are given for healthy and carcinopreventive diet.
The primary prevention is the most effective method to prevent cancers. The possible cancer preventive methods in nutrition will be demonstrated for the students during the lectures.
