Question from Rosalinda: During the holidays my office gets so many food gifts delivered! I have chocolate, cake, cookies, etc. all around me five days a week. I'm a 2-year breast cancer survivor—is it true that sugar feeds breast cancer? How can I stay in control?
Answers - Jennifer Sabol, M.D., F.A.C.S. It's an old wives' tale that sugar feeds breast cancer.
Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. Make sure when you're surrounded by food that does not have good cancer-fighting activities to have some of your own good food with you. I always have nuts and fresh or dried fruit with me at my desk or in my briefcase. That is another food option that you can participate in when others are eating.
