Eating habits have major influence on life of humans. In this paper I'm discussing nutrition influence on human health, specifically cancer growth. Number of researches has shown that plant nutrition has antimutagenic an anti-oxygenig effect. Not all nutritions in plants are good and healthy. For example, some flavonoids including quercetin have mutagenic effect, but it has not been proven yet what effect it has on humans in vivo. Cancer growth includes mutations on numerous pathways, where some show minimal effect in cell. Antimutages work on at least one of those pathways, but effecting only one of them is not nearly enough to prevent cancer growth. That is why we cannot expect discovery of some ''magical ingredient'' in food which can stop cancer. It has to be combination of nutritions that can prevent cancer growth.
