Bioactive molecules are obtained from living organisms and have variety of properties including anticancer, ant proliferative, anti-Parkinson, anti-Alzheimer etc. Out of these, cancer has emerged as an epidemic especially in the developing and third world countries. The cancer has been described as an uncontrolled cell growth leading to formation of carcinoma, nodes, lumps or hyperplasia conditions. The causative agents for this mutated cell conditions have been defined as “Risk Groups /factors” which may lead to cancer. Till date the traditional radiation therapy alone or coupled with chemotherapy has been practised as sole treatment of this disease. However, the survival rate of treated patients has been found to be very low. The present study describes role of various bioactive molecules in control of cancer. An effort has been made to ensemble the large data of bioactive compounds of microbial, plant, animal, food / herb / spices origin for their anticancer activity in minimum space possible in the present review.
