Cancer-Fighting Recipe Roundup

Eating a diet rich in a variety of fruits and vegetables every day, while limiting processed and high-fat foods is a good way to avoid an increased chance of developing cancer. It is recommended to skip red meat as part of an anti-cancer diet and replace that with fish, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids.

If you have unfortunately already been diagnosed with cancer, it is important to eat well during treatment to help your body stay strong, rebuild tissue damaged by treatment, deal with side effects and fight off infections. Oftentimes during treatment, a patient’s mouth can become very dry and sore. Softer foods, like applesauce or mashed potatoes, can help you combat this problem.
