Optimal function of the digestive system is required to ensure that food is properly broken down and absorbed. A consistent supply of essential micronutrients is critical for this function. The gut microbiome, host immune system, and dietary exposures to micronutrients and phytonutrients influence the systems and biological processes that can shift us toward resilient health or dysfunction and disease. Understanding this interplay may help guide cancer susceptibility, prevention and treatment strategies.
