Abstract: Chronic degenerative diseases, including cancer, are becoming more frequent. Colorectal cancer is one of the world´s most prevalent forms of cancer. This disease can be caused by genetic factors but also by modifiable factors such as lifestyle and diet. Strategies to reduce the incidence and mortality have focused on the use of chemopreventive agents such as phytochemicals present in foods.
