- Abby S. Block, Barbara Grant, Kathryn Hamilton, Cynthia Thomson
Part one explains the essential role of good nutrition for cancer patients. Part two provides clear information about nutrition to maximize the benefits of treatment. Part three focuses on Survivorship and staying well after treatment. This soup-to-nuts guide offers everything one needs to know, with special sections on: the potential effects of supplements, vitamins, minerals, and herbs; coping with digestion- and eating-related side effects of treatment; so-called 'special' diets, including those promoted as cures for cancer; extensive resources, references, index; plus, first-hand suggestions from real people who've undergone cancer treatment.
Note: this science-based guide to sound nutrition provides guidance to both patient and caregiver. It is also the perfect companion to the American Cancer Society's new cookbook, "What to Eat During Cancer Treatment".
