Further, the application of flavonoid in the anti-cancer drug is expected to be one of the major factors driving the market the growing demand for convenience food products has increased the use. Flavonoids are a large group of phytonutrients or plant chemicals found in fruits, vegetables, herbs, and plants it is estimated that there are over 6,000 types of flavonoids they are known for the benefits they provide including their anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic and anti-carcinogenic properties they. In the present review, attempts have been made to discuss the current trends of research and development on flavonoids, working mechanisms of flavonoids, flavonoid functions and applications, prediction of flavonoids as potential drugs in preventing chronic diseases and future research directions. Cancer screening overview screening tests research diagnosis and staging symptoms diagnosis staging oligosaccharides, flavonoids, and selenium, all of which may be beneficial to health nonrandomized study indicate that the application of garlic extracts to some skin tumors may be beneficial.
Flavonoids inhibit the action of certain hormones such as estrogen, and enable to prevent hormone based malignancies such as breast cancer, prostate cancer and others increasing aging population coupled with rising demand of cancer fighting product is expected to support the growth of flavonoids market in the near future. All polyphenols, including flavonoids, offer numerous health benefits besides being potent antioxidants, some polyphenols have other biological activities that can prevent certain diseases for example, pomegranate juice showed the ability to slow down the growth of prostate and lung cancers and improve vascular health. The purpose of this review is to give an overview of current research on flavonoids to further elucidate their potential in cancer prevention and therapy, thereby focusing on their distinct epigenetic activities.
Flavonoids have been demonstrated to inhibit carcinogenesis in vitro and substantial evidence indicates that they can also do so in vivo 59–61 they may inhibit carcinogenesis by affecting the molecular events in the initiation, promotion, and progression stages. Flavonoid rich foods help in reducing the risk of various diseases such as heart, cancer and other chronic diseases owing to high content of antioxidant which prevents body from free radical damage occurring from the exposure of certain chemicals, pollution and smoking. Flavonoids have been reported to induce apoptosis process by activating and modulating cellular signaling pathways resulting in death of pre-cancerous and maligne cells, which terminates cancer development or progression. If this is true, flavonoids might play a role in the prevention of cancer that is worthy of further investigation clinical effects an overview of the hypothetical links between the working mechanisms and clinical effects of flavonoids is given in figure 2.
Dietary flavonoid intake and risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma flavonoids are compounds found in a variety of foods, including blueberries, plums, apples, cherries, oranges, strawberries, spinach, dark chocolate, nuts, red wine, soy products and tea.

The surveillance, epidemiology, and end results (seer) program of the national cancer institute (nci) is an authoritative source of information on cancer incidence and survival in the united states.
Abstract cancer is a major public health concern in both developed and developing countries several plant-derived anti-cancer agents including taxol, vinblastine, vincristine, the campothecin derivatives, topotecan, irinotecan and etoposide are in clinical use all over the world. Cancer is a major public health concern in both developed and developing countries several plant-derived anti-cancer agents including taxol, vinblastine, vincristine, the campothecin derivatives, topotecan, irinotecan and etoposide are in clinical use all over the world. Application of flavonoid as an anti-cancer drug is expected to be the major factor driving growth in these countries, over the forecast period rising demand for convenience food products has increased utilization of flavonoids in functional food. Flavonoids may have potential for killing cancer cells - a study from university of illinois showed that celery, artichokes, and herbs, especially mexican oregano, contain flavonoids that killed.
Clinical studies investigating the relationship between flavonoid consumption and cancer prevention/development are conflicting for most types of cancer, probably because most studies are retrospective in design and use a small sample size biochemistry and applications crc press. Abstract tea and its main bioactive ingredients, the flavonoids, have been associated with human cancer for several decades in this article, an overview is provided of observational epidemiological studies of lung cancer incidence in relation to intake of green tea, black tea, flavonols/flavones, and catechins. 1 introduction cancer, a multifactorial heterogeneous disease, is a leading cause of mortality worldwide (jemal et al, 2011)the toxicity associated with the current chemotherapeutics has raised the demand for the development of new anti-cancer agents.
Flavonoids prevent cancer cell growth, cure stomach ulcers and have anti-microbial properties, thus, preventing infections further, the application of flavonoid in the anti-cancer drug is expected to be one of the major factors driving the market. Flavonoids are phytonutrients in plant-based food products that often contribute to the color of the foods they provide antioxidant activity which may play a significant role in cardiovascular health and may help to prevent against diseases such as cancer caused by free-radical damage. Flavonoids, as aglycones or conjugate metabolites, may confer health benefits related to cancer, inflammatory disease, cardiovascular disease, neurological disorders, metabolic syndrome, obesity and osteoporosis.
