Nutrition for Cancer Patients
Carolyn Katzin, M.S., C.N.S., discusses nutrition for patients with cancer. Good nutrition is essential for patients both during and after treatment. In this new era of precision medicine and its sister science of precision nutrition, the “one size fits all” type of diet recommendations ideally should be tailored for each cancer patient. She presents some general concepts along with some simple tools that help identify which types of foods and dietary supplements would be most helpful for cancer patients based on the patient’s current health status and family history.
