This writer sees cancer prevention as the most effective of all anti- cancer strategies, especially those strategies which target cell growth, differentiation, and apoptosis. Phyto-prevention—the use of natural derived compounds often called phytochemicals, along with a multi-faceted molecular targeting approach—in particular, shows great promise. It is important to note, however, that drawing clear lines between natural medicines and remedies, on the one hand, and ‘drugs’ or pharmaceutical products, on the other, can often be wrought with confusion, since many drugs are derived from the natural components of plants. Nevertheless, most natural components of plants are seen as less aggressive forms of therapeutic intervention than chemicals.

The principle phytochemicals that have been identified as most useful for cancer prevention strategies are organosulfurs, phenols, glucosinolates, saponin. Closely related to phytochemical strategies are those strategies that include the use of micronutrients such as NSAIDs and Vitamings A, C, D, E, folate, calcium and selenium are considered—all of which are often referred to as “chemopreventive.” Perhaps the greatest level of success at fighting cancer through nutrition is found in the battle against colon-rectal cancer (CRC), as we now know that almost 50% of CRCs can be prevented by proper nutrition.
