Unhealthy diets are a major cause of cancer. Extensive scientific research implicates three components of diet as being particularly important in the etiology of various cancers: dietary fat, fruits and vegetables, and fiber. The evidence linking these components to the incidence of numerous cancers warrants physicians making strong dietary recommendations to reduce their patients' risk of developing cancer.
