Good nutrition is part of a healthy lifestyle, along with exercise, weight management, not smoking, and reducing stress. Research suggests that these healthy lifestyle practices play a part in disease prevention, including the prevention of some types of cancer.
Good nutrition also plays a critical role during cancer treatment and needs to be an important part of your overall treatment plan. The foods you eat have an impact on your health on a daily basis, from increasing your energy level to supporting your immune system. Eating a healthy, minimally processed, plant-based diet not only benefits your overall health, but can also help you manage symptoms during treatment and promote survivorship.
It's important to work with a nutritionist who specializes in cancer. At Dana-Farber, our nutritionists are trained to work with cancer patients at all stages, from prevention through treatment, and ongoing survivorship. Whatever your situation, and wherever you are in your cancer journey, we will help you develop a plan to maximize all of the benefits and good nutrition you can get from food.
