"The microbes living in your food can affect your risk of cancer. While some
help your body fight cancer, others help tumors evolve and grow.

Gut microbes can influence your cancer risk by changing how your cells behave.
Many cancer-protective microbes support normal, cooperative behavior of cells.
Meanwhile, cancer-inducing microbes undermine cellular cooperation and increase
your risk of cancer in the process.

We are evolutionary biologists who study how cooperation and conflict occur
inside the human body, including the ways cancer can evolve to exploit the
body. Our systematic review examines how diet and the microbiome affect the
ways the cells in your body interact with each other and either increase or
decrease your risk of cancer."
