Abstract

Cancer encompasses a highly heterogeneous group of diseases. It has been thought that transition from promotion to progression in carcinogenesis may be driven primarily by epigenetic abnormalities. Diet is known to play crucial roles in cancer etiology and has an important role in epigenetics. Current knowledge in the interrelationship among cancer, nutrition and epigenetics is reviewed.
