NUTRITION

Now is the time to start eating better. From shopping lists to meal plans, we offer information that will help you transform nutrition into medicine.

Now is the Time to Eat Well

If ever a reason to start eating better, cancer is it. Eighty percent of cancer survivors make self-described major shifts in their diet as part of their recovery plan.

The most common shifts? Consuming whole foods (less processed); foods low in fat, salt and sugar; foods including “color” (fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains); and adequate amounts of pure water.

From grocery lists to meal plans to what to clean out of the kitchen, we offer information that helps patients eat with awareness – and turn nutrition into medicine.

    September 5, 2017

    At Cancer Recovery Foundation International, we view food as part of a total treatment plan. As Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said, “Let food be thy medicine and thy medicine thy food.”

    Many cancer patients and survivors take nutrition very seriously. In fact, 8 out of 10 survivors make significant changes in their diets and nutritional practices.

    We believe proper nutrition is an integral part of your healing process. Research has shown that people who eat more natural diets – focused on fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains – suffer far less from obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

Surviving Cancer Takes A Village

Cancer Recovery Foundation counts on generous individuals to support its programs to help patients survive cancer. However, individual donations are insufficient to meet people’s need for support. To close this gap, we are forging partnerships with businesses that wish to fulfill a social mission.
