Nutrition and Physical Activity in Aging, Obesity,and Cancer / Edition 1

Recently, much attention has been focused on aging and obesity andthe pivotal roles these conditions play in the development ofchronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and cancer. Several preclinical and clinical studies have revealed associationsbetween aging and obesity and altered celluarenvironments––including genetic changes andinflammation–in the pathogenesis of many chronic disorders.Conventional methods for the treatment of cancer, includingsurgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, result in limited successin certain cases and demonstrate additional modalities arerequired. In contrast to conventional treatments, some recentstrategies are shifting to cancer prevention and treatment throughphysical exercise and better nutrition to control tumorprogression, and to improve prognosis and rehabilitation in somecancer patients.

This Annals volume presents a series of short reviewsthat focus on recent advances in, and future directions for,physical and nutritional bio-modulation and prevention of aging,obesity, and cancer, and suggest clinical care guidelines for thegeneral population and for cancer patients and survivors who needproper physical exercise and optimal nutrition.
