  1. 1. PRESENTED BY Mr. T. HARIBABU DEPT OF PHARMACOLOGY ABMRCP
  2. 2. WHAT IS CANCER ?
  3. 3. Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body.
  4. 4. ● Cancer is a major public health problem in many parts of the world. There are over 100 different types of cancer, affecting various parts of the body. Oxidative stress is an important contributor in cancer. If oxidative damage is left unrepaired, it can lead to mutations and changes in biology, which can lead to neoplasia (unregulated accumulation of cells). Increased consumption of fruits and vegetables has been recommended to reduce the incidence of cancer. Fruits and vegetables are good sources of antioxidants and phytochemicals that mitigate the damaging effect of oxidative stress.
  5. 5. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for 20% of all deaths .In the year 2008, approximately 2.7 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed and 7.6 million deaths were reported due to cancer worldwide. There are many etiological factors in the development of cancer. Among these, inappropriate new cases of diet, physical inactivity, and obesity have been implicated in approximately 30%–35% of cancer cases. Diets that contain little vegetables, fruits, and whole grains and relatively more of processed. foods and red meat have been linked with a number of cancers.
