It has been recognized that food components, particularly of plant origin, have the potential to protect against cancer and heart disease, and these topics have received wide media attention. This volume discusses the mechanisms and current thinking of how nutritional status influences the way we respond to chemical insults and its role in the aetiology of disease. It takes a mechanistic approach to how dietary factors are related to toxicology and chemical carcinogenesis.
