Nutrition and Physical Activity in Aging, Obesity, and Cancer presents a series of short reviews probing the connections of physical and nutritional factors with health and disease. The work presented here gives special attention to the deleterious effects of metabolic dysregulation and obesity as potential mechanisms that amplify the development and proliferation of cancer. Notable inclusions in this volume are papers examining the molecular basis of inflammatory bowel disease, chemoresistance in ovarian cancer, and skin cancer; the interaction of obesity and inflammation in cancer risk; and proteomic signaling in the regulation of skeletal muscular health and metabolism.
