Increasing numbers of people use dietary vegetables, medicinal herbs, and plant extracts to prevent or treat cancer. Their availability as "over the counter" supplements has contributed to an explosion in the use of herbal extracts and related compounds for health enhancement.

Research professionals, academics, hospital-based dietitians, nutritionists, oncology physicians, cancer researchers, marketers and food and drug officials are just a few of the key people who need this book.
