In recent years, both dietary and cancer treatment approaches that target deregulated tumor metabolism are beginning to be considered for preclinic and clinical applications. Nutrition regimen is also extremely important in determining cancer treatment strategies. This review also suggestes that nutrition can affect and potentially enhance the immune response against cancer. In this review, I try to illustrate how dietary therapies differ in their effect on metabolism. It is important to provide preventive medicine and patient-specific diet in order to control tumor development and prevent the spread of cancer. Microbiota-regulating diets, have been demonstrated to lower the risk of developing some cancers and reduce the mortality associated with them. Finally, supplements, such as omega-3 and antioxidant, are discussed as potential approaches that could benefit healthy dietary and lifestyle habits to protect the immune system against cancer and especially against chemotherapeutic agents.
