DESCRIPTION: Do the anti-cancer effects of phytates in a petri dish translate out into clinical studies on cancer prevention and treatment?

I talked about the role of fiber versus phytate in colon cancer in my video Phytates for the Prevention of Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-the-treatment-of-cancer), the first in this 3-part video series. See also my last video Phytates for Rehabilitating Cancer Cells (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-rehabilitating-cancer-cells).

I covered the potential bone protecting properties of phytates in my video Phytates for the Prevention of Osteoporosis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-the-prevention-of-osteoporosis/).

More on preventing tumor invasion and metastasis in:
• Prostate Cancer Survival: The A/V Ratio (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/prostate-cancer-survival-the-av-ratio/)
• Amla Versus Cancer Cell Invasion (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/amla-versus-cancer-cell-invasion/)
• Lung Cancer Metastases and Broccoli (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/lung-cancer-metastases-and-broccoli/)

Other foods that can help stop the progression of precancerous lesions (like the adenomatous polyps) are profiled in Strawberries versus Esophageal Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/strawberries-versus-esophageal-cancer/) and Black Raspberries versus Oral Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/black-raspberries-versus-oral-cancer/).

There's a substance in mushrooms that's also another "essential" nutrient candidate. See Ergothioneine: A New Vitamin? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/ergothioneine-a-new-vitamin/).

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-the-treatment-of-cancer/ and he'll try to answer it!
