Nutrition, Toxicity, and Cancer provides practical guidance on methodology for formulating diets and designing nutritional studies in animals and humans, in addition to valuable information on how nutrition influences specific biological processes such as biotransformation of foreign and endogenously produced compounds. The book also presents sample diets and advice on the layout of metabolic suites. Other topics discussed include the complex interactions between nutrition and carcinogenic processes, teratogenesis and mutagenesis. Toxicologists, cancer researchers, nutritionists, and biochemists should consider Nutrition, Toxicity, and Cancer to be an invaluable reference resource that provides up-to-date reviews on the effect of diet on mammalian and microbial metabolic processes in the body.
