Nutrition and Cancer

Ellen Kampman, Fränzel van Duijnhoven, Dieuwertje Kok, WageningenX

Discover the latest insights on the role of diet, nutrition and lifestyle in the prevention, occurrence and progression of cancer.

Is cancer partly preventable through a healthy diet? Cancer has overtaken cardiovascular disease (CVD) as the leading cause of death in many parts of the world. It causes one in eight deaths worldwide. Global trends show that the majority of all cancer deaths occur in the low- and middle-income countries. Yet, cancer can be partly prevented and many of these deaths can be avoided.

Can cancer risk be reduced through a healthy diet or lifestyle? Many studies have been conducted on the role of nutrition and physical activity in cancer prevention. This has resulted in recommendations for cancer prevention. Far less research is conducted on nutrition and cancer progression, but the evidence is increasing that a healthy diet may also play a beneficial role for cancer survivors. Join this course and learn more about the role of nutrition in the occurrence and progression of cancer. You will learn how nutrition is involved in cancer occurrence, treatment, and progression. And you will discover what the evidence-base is for dietary guidelines.

This course focuses on a wide range of dietary exposures (including vegetables, meat, dietary supplements, alcohol) and lifestyle factors (including body composition and physical activity) in relation to the occurrence and progression of the most common types of cancer, such as large bowel , breast, prostate, and lung cancer.

This course is  especially valuable for professionals (in training) from various fields related to nutrition or cancer (e.g. nutritionists, epidemiologists, health policy makers, physicians, caregivers, nutrition educators, biologists, food scientists).  

Dieticians and physicians often get questions from cancer patients about what they can do themselves to help their recovery process. This course is part of the Professional Certificate Program Nutrition and Disease. You will gain a  solid scientific basis to better weigh and interpret all the information available on nutrition and cancer.

This course, is part of the Nutrition and Disease Professional Certificate Program of Wageningen University & Research. Did you already complete Nutrition, Heart Disease and Diabetes? That is the other course in this Professional Certificate Program.
