Since oxidative stress and chronic inflammation are the key pathologic events for neoplastic transformation of cells [36, 44], the biochemical basis of cancer chemoprevention with dried fruits might be the maintenance of cellular redox balance and attenuation of inflammatory tissue damage. Though reactive oxygen species (ROS) are physiologic by-products of cellular metabolism and are often essential for many biochemical reactions and cell signaling pathways, excessive generation of ROS can cause oxidative damage to cellular macromolecules, such as proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids [44, 45].
