Research has shown that certain dietary patterns have a major effect in helping cancer survivors to live longer, healthier lives. Numerous studies have shown that a diet built from plant foods offers the most cancer-fighting protection of any diet plan. Reviews by the American Institute of Cancer Research showed that as much as 40 percent of cancer risk may be related to diet.

There is a textbook for this class; The Cancer Survivor's Guide. You may purchase a copy online or simply download a FREE copy here:
The Cancer Survivor's Guide will give you important insights into what researchers have proven: Food Choices can help prevent cancer and, when cancer has been diagnosed, nutrition can improve survival. These links between diet and cancer are nothing short of dramatic. And now you can learn how certain dietary patterns help people diagnosed with cancer live longer, healthier lives. Includes more than 130 recipes.
