Diet and Cancer: What Dont We Know and When Didnt We Know it?Dileep G. Bal, M.D., Chief Cancer Control Branch Department of Health Services


This presentation represents the opinions of Dileep G. Bal, M.D. and not the California Department of Health Services, in any way whatsoever. The opinions of either can change without further notice.

Objectives TodayPresent the American Cancer Society Nutrition and Physical Activity Guidelines for Cancer Prevention Discuss the science base behind the recommendations Present current trends and statistics

On any given day in the United States...815 billion calories are consumed (200 billion more than needed) 47 million hot dogs 4 million pounds of bacon 60 million pounds of red meat 170 million eggs

On any given day in the United States...3 million gallons of ice cream 10 million pounds of candy 16 million gallons of beer and ale 1.5 million gallons of hard liquor (enough to make 26 million people drunk!)

Genetic Susceptibility(Common Polymorphisms)

Purpose of the Nutrition and Physical Activity GuidelinesTo review current scientific data on diet and cancers To translate this into clear, defensible recommendations for the general public To promote changes in environments that support healthful eating and physical activity habits To reduce cancer risk

Which year?


In England, four and a half times as many people die now from cancer as half a century ago. Probably no single factor is more important in determining the outbreak of cancer in the predisposed than high feeding. Many indications point to the gluttonous consumption of meat as likely to be especially harmful.

Which year?


Statistics show that the consumption of meat has reached the amazing total of 131 pounds per head per year, which is more than double what it was half a century ago. No doubt other factors co-operate, among these I should be inclined to name deficient exercise and deficiency in fresh vegetable food.

Society RecommendationsIndividual ChoicesEat a variety of foods, with an emphasis on plant sources. Adopt a physically active lifestyle. Maintain a healthful weight throughout life. If you drink alcoholic beverages, limit consumption.

Society Recommendations Community ActionPublic, private, and community organizations should work to create social and physical environments that support the adoption and maintenance of healthful nutrition and physical activity behaviors

Society Recommendations Community ActionIncrease access to healthful foods in schools, worksites, and communities. Provide safe, enjoyable, and accessible environments for physical activity in schools, and for transportation and recreation in communities.

Society Recommendations Individual ChoicesEat a variety of healthful foods, with an emphasis on plant sources.Eat 5 or more servings of a variety of vegetables and fruit each day. Choose whole grains in preference to processed (refined) grains and sugars. Limit consumption of red meats, especially those high in fat and processed. Choose foods that help maintain a healthful weight.

Eat five or more servings of a variety of vegetables and fruits each dayInclude vegetables or fruits in every meal and for snacks. Limit french fries, snack chips, and other fried vegetable products. Choose 100% juice if you drink fruit or vegetable juices.

Relative Risk What it meansRR = Relative Risk = Risk Ratio Risk among exposed/Risk among non-exposed Null association, RR = 1.00 RR of 1.5 means exposed group has 50% greater risk of disease than non-exposed; RR of 0.60 means 40% lower risk

Choose whole grains in preference to processed (refined) grains and sugars.Include grain products such as breads, cereals rice, pasta, or beans in every meal. Eat other foods from plant sources several times each day. Limit consumption of refined carbohydrates, including pastries, sweetened cereals, soft drinks, and sugars.

Limit consumption of red meats, especially those high in fat and processedChoose fish, poultry, or beans as an alternative to beef, pork, and lamb When you eat meat, select lean cuts and smaller portions Prepare meat by baking, broiling, poaching, rather than by frying or charbroiling
