Cancer results due to an imbalance between regulation of cell proliferation and apoptosis. As per the latest data released by World Health Organization (WHO), a large part of global population cannot access proper anticancer therapy, and this imposes a burden of approximately US$ 1.16 trillion on global economy. Relevant studies were identified through electronic searches of Pubmed, Medline, Scopus, Google scholar. In this review, we found that there is extensive range of dietary items whose components can influence either cell proliferation rate or cell death rate or both. Exclusion and avoidance of several dietary items/habits are linked with reduced risk of several types of cancer. In addition, many dietary items have been proven beneficial for minimizing the risk of various cancers and slow down their progression. More extensive clinical studies are required for establishing quantitative facts about dose-response relationship.
