Diet and nutrition play critical roles throughout the cancer continuum. Diet and dietary components can contribute to an increased or decreased risk of cancer development. Diet is also a central component during antineoplastic treatment that may be altered by treatment, and can have a profound influence on health and treatment outcomes. In survivorship, individuals may be motivated to seek information about diet to improve their overall health, and for many survivors, a healthy diet should be a priority. However, there are a number of challenges in conducting and interpreting diet–cancer relationships related to methodological limitations, the heterogeneity of studies, and the need for replication of findings.
This Special Issue of Nutrients, “Nutrition and Cancer: From Prevention to Survivorship”, aims to inform our knowledge of diet–cancer relationships and welcomes the submission of manuscripts examining the impact of diet and dietary components throughout the cancer continuum. Topics of interest include but are not limited to those described above. Manuscripts that use new technologies and approaches such as the use of biomarkers of dietary exposure and the consideration of dietary patterns are of particular interest. Epidemiological, interventional, and systematic reviews, and meta-analyses, are welcomed.
