Cancer touches everybody’s life in one way or another. But most of us know very little about how the disease works or why we treat it the way we do. The link between cancer and diet is just as mysterious as the disease itself. Much research has pointed toward certain foods and nutrients that may help prevent—or, conversely, contribute to—certain types of cancer.
Good nutrition is especially important if you have cancer, because both the illness and its treatment can affect your appetite. Cancer and cancer treatments can also affect your body’s ability to tolerate certain foods and use nutrients. Cancer patients need to maintain a healthy body weight and eat nutritious foods.
Sometimes the side effects of surgery, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy may cause a person to eat less and lose weight. Nutrition therapy is used to help cancer patients keep a healthy body weight, maintain strength, keep body tissue healthy, and decrease side effects both during and after treatment.
Nutrition therapy guide can help you and your loved ones learn about your nutrition needs and cope with treatment side effects that may affect how well you can eat.
