Cancer is one of the leading causes of death all over the world. The number of cancer cases is expected to increase up to 24 million by 2035. Several studies were performed in the last years in order to explore and analyze associations between diet and risk of cancer. The use of nutraceuticals, food contamination with mycotoxins, honey properties as well as lifestyle recommendations are the main topics highlighted in this mini review. The risk of cancer is depending on degree of exposure to contaminated food, availability of nutrients (ex. nutraceuticals) to the body, dietary pattern and lifestyle as well as food behavior.
