Patient Nutrition

Nutritional Guide Books Available for You

     The National Cancer Institute defines nutrition as the process in which food is taken in and used by the body for growth, to keep the body healthy, and to replace tissue. Good nutrition is important for good health. Eating the right kinds of foods before, during, and after cancer treatment can help the patient feel better and stay stronger. A healthy diet includes eating and drinking enough of the foods and liquids that have the important nutrients (vitamins, mineralsproteincarbohydrates, fat, and water) the body needs. (www.cancer.gov)

     Healthy eating habits are especially important for cancer patients. Cancer and cancer treatments can affect your ability to take in enough nutrients, so understanding how you may be affected, depending on your condition and how you are treated, will greatly aid you during your care. The guidelines set by the National Cancer Institute and other reputable organizations are great educational sources to help alleviate some of the unpleasant conditions associated with cancer and treatment. For a comprehensive look at nutrition in cancer care, go to the National Cancer Institute website.
