Eating well is important for everyone, but it is essential if you have cancer. Good nutrition can boost your immune system and reduce your risk of infection as you undergo treatment. In fact, several nutrients may actually slow the growth of some types of cancer. Getting the nutrients you need also will help your body heal after the stress of therapy. Eating a balanced, healthy diet and being physically active will give you a solid foundation for a long, healthy life as a cancer survivor.

This book is an invaluable resource for anyone who has experienced cancer, is undergoing treatment, or is interested in making positive changes in the way they eat.
