Diet in cancer is a highly emotive area and one of great confusion. Has my diet caused my cancer? Will I recover if I give up dairy products? Is it worth spending money on supplements? This book is a practical nutritional guide for those diagnosed with cancer, those undergoing treatment, and those whose treatment is over. It tackles the problems associated with nutrition and cancer, such as lack of appetite, nausea and dehydration. It suggests ways to keep up your strength and energy, particularly when you don't feel like eating. Other topics include how to avoid infection and help the healing process; monitoring your food intake and weight; and planning an eating plan that's right for you. Includes recipes.
Jane Freeman is nutritionist at the London Oncology Clinic, Harley Street.
