Nutrition for people with cancer
There are many places to get recommendations. But from our view, patient/survivors/advocates the most important thing you can do is eat organically-grown foods (without pesticides or minimal use).
There’s a wonderful website maintained by the Environmental Working Group www.ewg.org that offers detailed lists of Most Sprayed foods and Least Sprayed foods. This allows people who cannot manage 100% organic, to make educated choices as to what to buy.
Most supermarkets these days carry organic produce. Shop that section as much as possible because sadly our bodies store chemicals and this contributes to ill health including cancer.
The most healthful foods are prepared from fresh fruits and vegetables. Some folks favor raw, some lightly cooked, but don’t boil them until they cry for mercy as was done in the older times.
If you can, steam some veggies, roast some others, and have some servings at lunch and dinner. Fruit can be at breakfast and as a lovely end of meal. There are some theories that you shouldn’t mix fruit and veggies, but you decide what is best for yourself. We believe ORGANIC is always best.
