Cancer is a leading cause of death world-wide. Treatment of cancer is more difficult if cancer cells are metastasized to distant parts of the body. Current available treatment options are not sufficient to save lives, therefore alternative innovative strategies are required to prevent or treat the disease. Chemoprevention of cancer seems to be the best strategy or approach to protect from this disease and increase the span of healthy life in human beings. The approach may include regular intake of phytochemicals, dietary or non-dietary, which are non-toxic in nature but have potent anti-carcinogenic properties.
