Whether you have cancer, or are supporting a loved one with cancer, you have probably thought about nutrition. If you ask most oncologists about nutrition, they will say that it doesn’t matter what cancer patients eat. Some will even say, “eat what you want!” Unfortunately, this is bad advice.

We have significant research showing that what we eat matters a lot, whether we are treating cancer or trying to prevent it. Scientific studies recommend a whole food, plant-based diet. This means focusing on vegetables, fruits, beans, and grains, while limiting animal protein sources such as beef, meat, fish, and dairy. Your food should be as organic and unprocessed as possible. Such an approach focuses on the cleanest, healthiest foods on the planet, full of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

I highly encourage you to adopt these nutritional strategies. As an added bonus, you will also reduce your risk of developing other chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s as well.

If you would like more information on the topic of cancer nutrition, as well as many other aspects of cancer treatment and prevention, please check out my bestselling book, Cancer Secrets. It is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle versions.
