- Question from shawksie: How is nutrition during or after cancer therapy different from good nutrition in general? I'm confused.
- Answers - Ronda Gates, M.S., R.Ph. It isn't. When we are eager to be well, we heighten our interest in good nutrition.
- Marisa Weiss, M.D. It's a wake-up call.
- Ronda Gates, M.S., R.Ph. All studies about preventing cancer come back to the simple rule of eating more vitamin and mineral enriched foods; what are called "nutrient dense" foods.
- Marisa Weiss, M.D. And my point is that good nutrition is also tied very closely to weight control. And weight control has been shown to be important for breast cancer prevention.
- Ronda Gates, M.S., R.Ph. Don't forget exercise. The two are partners.
