Fighting Cancer by the Plateful

No single food can prevent cancer, but the right combination of foods may help make a difference. At mealtimes, strike a balance of at least two-thirds plant-based foods and no more than one-third animal protein. This "New American Plate" is an important cancer fighting tool, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research. Check out better and worse choices for your plate.


Fighting Cancer With Colour Fruits and vegetables are rich in cancer-fighting nutrients -- and the more color, the more nutrients they contain. These foods can help lower your risk in a second way, too, when they help you reach and maintain a healthy body weight. Carrying extra pounds increases the risk for multiple cancers, including colon, esophagus, and kidney cancers. Eat a variety of vegetables, especially dark green, red, and orange vegetables.

5 New Year's Resolution Ideas for Cancer Patients

Many of us associate Christmas with seeing family and friends, parties and lots of eating and drinking. It is a time of celebration. But when you have cancer, you might tire more easily. Your cancer or treatment may mean that you have trouble joining in with all the festive eating and drinking.

Eating and drinking

Many people who have cancer have few or no problems with eating. But some do. These can include loss of appetite, feeling sick, constipation or changes in taste. At Christmas or other events you might have added pressure from friends and family who want you to eat something when you might not want to.

There are a few things you can do to deal with eating problems. Even if you can’t eat as much as normal, you can still join in.Talk to your doctor or nurse before Christmas or other occasion if you have a specific problem. For example, if you feel sick you might need to make sure you have enough anti sickness medicines for the whole holiday.
