Terminology Clarification

I'm studying diet, not oncology. I want to understand the relationship between phytochemicals and their effect on cancer...among other things.

Could anyone talk to me about the differences between MCF-7 breast cancer cells, cyclin Dl and bcl-2, and quinone reductase NQO1?

It seems to me from reading this article:

that I can not focus on food combinations for breast cancer without knowing a bit more about what type of breast cancer someone has.

I've looked into each type of cancer I'm asking about, but I am looking for more basic answers.

Any help is appreciated.
