Also discussed are the cancer-preventive effects of vitamins, lipids, carotenoids, flavonoids, and other components of diet. The findings presented here will be invaluable to all who are interested in diet and cancer prevention, and especially to biochemists, pharmacologists, food scientists, and nutritionists.An increase in 8OH-Gua and its repair activity in the livers of ethanol-fed rats was observed only after feeding the autoclaved diet, not with the normal diet.
