Where to find guidance on nutrition?


Question from Risa: What qualifications should I look for in someone who will give me nutritional guidance or proven information on vitamins and supplements? It doesn't seem to be an interest of some oncologists.
Answers - Gary Deng Many cancer centers now have a component of integrative medicine. They offer specific advice on nutrition and diet and lifestyle changes that are helpful to breast cancer patients. I suggest you contact a program like this that is close and convenient to you as a starting point.

On Wednesday, July 18, 2007, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Vitamins and Herbal Supplements. Gary Deng, M.D., Ph.D. and moderator Beth Baughman DuPree, M.D., F.A.C.S. answered your questions about how to safely and sensibly incorporate vitamins and supplements into your diet.
