    Does nutrition contribute to cancer susceptibility?

    The answer is almost certainly. However, the mechanisms and critical nutrients are not clearly identified. To date, there is no anti-cancer diet that has been shown to clearly reduce the risk of cancer. Presumably, minimizing environmental exposures to tobacco smoke, lawn treatment chemicals, and feeding fresh vegetables is the best thing to do as we currently understand it.
