The Mediterranean diet and nutritional genomics are explored in relation to cancer in women. While genetics and lifestyle factors contribute to cancer risk, studies show that adhering to the Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, whole grains, fish, and olive oil, is associated with a lower risk of cancer. This diet’s protective effects are attributed to its antioxidants, fiber content, and avoidance of red and processed meat. Nutritional genomics investigates the interaction between nutrients and genes, including genetic variations that affect individual responses to diet. Research has identified genetic variations associated with increased breast and colorectal cancer risks in relation to low folate and vitamin D intake. Combining the Mediterranean diet with nutritional genomics may offer a promising approach to prevent and treat cancer in women. However, further research is needed to fully comprehend the underlying mechanisms and develop personalized dietary recommendations.
