Certain plant foods are high in furanocoumarins. Test tube and animal studies suggest that furanocoumarins may help prevent cancer. It is difficult to determine in humans if furanocoumarins do prevent cancer because there isn't an objective way to tell who has eaten these compounds. This study will develop a urine test to determine if an individual ate foods that contain furanocoumarins.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.
