Statistics show that every third inhabitant of the Czech Republic falls ill with cancer during their lifetime and every fourth inhabitant dies of it. The increasing number of reported oncological diseases is linked with a number of factors. Population aging contributes to this since age is the main risk factor of malignancy, especially due to the accumulation of risk factors. Overweight and obesity together with polluted environment and higher occurrence of physical and chemical carcinogens such as dioxins in the air or agrochemicals which are found both in agricultural products and sources of drinking water are also significant risk factors.
In the last few decades oncology has seen a significant improvement in diagnostics. Therapeutic progress, which enables early detection of cancer and the availability of of better treatment, gives the patients a chance to live a longer, better life. Furthermore, oncological diseases are viewed as the condition of the whole body which requires strengthening the habits of a healthy lifestyle. Diet, apart from sufficient amount of sleep and healthy exercise, is a very important factor. In fact, a well-chosen diet can help patients better tolerate cancer treatment and it also appears to help maintain remission.
