The food consumed during cancer treatment is especially important. Eating well can help patients feel better, keep up their strength and energy, maintain appropriate weight and the body's store of nutrients, tolerate treatment-related side effects, decrease risk of infection, and heal and recover quickly. Part one explains the essential role of good nutrition for cancer patients. Part two provides clear information about nutrition to maximize the benefits of treatment. Part three focuses on Survivorship and staying well after treatment. This soup-to-nuts guide offers everything one needs to know, with special sections on: the potential effects of supplements, vitamins, minerals, and herbs; coping with digestion- and eating-related side effects of treatment; so-called 'special' diets, including those promoted as cures for cancer; extensive resources, references, index; plus, first-hand suggestions from real people who've undergone cancer treatment. Note: this science-based guide to sound nutrition provides guidance to both patient and caregiver. It is also the perfect companion to the American Cancer Society's new cookbook, ""What to Eat During Cancer Treatment"".
