Furthermore, the cells of the immune system may not adequately penetrate to the internal tumor microenvironment, resulting in slower immune-mediated tumor elimination. However, it is possible that the immune system may be more effective in controlling tumor growth rate rather than tumor regression [10]. Recently, it has been found that N. Rezaei et al. 4 nutrition also plays a crucial role in protection against human cancer, and normal levels of zinc are required for protection against the detrimental effects of various immunosuppressive cytokines [16].

6 % per year among women. 3 % per year); however, American Indians/Alaska natives were an exception, and the rate remained unchanged in this population [1]. Cancer survival significantly impacts patients’ quality of life. Five-year mortality rates depend on several factors; survival is worse among males over 30 years of age, and the survival gets worse for patients over 45 years old in both males and females. NonHispanic whites have the best survival rate and African-Americans have the worst survival with survival differences as great as 20 % at 5 years after cancer diagnosis [5].
