What To Eat When You Have Cancer


“Diet is a major contributor in 35% of all cancers” says Dr. Richard Doll in his book, Causes of Cancer. This, by the way, is even higher than smoking, which weighs in at 30%. Let us see how your diet can help you heal from cancer.

If diet is that important … and if you already have been diagnosed with cancer, this information might feel like it has come a bit too late. But wait. Diet is just as important for the treatment and recovery from cancer.

Good nutrition for cancer

Good nutrition is a common sense idea for recovering from any major illness. However what nutrition is considered good for cancer? Which nutrients should you be getting regularly?

There is a lot of information out there about this. So much, in fact, that it has the risk of leaving people more confused than ever. Simple, practical and research-backed information is needed. And here it is. Through a series of articles, Cancer Awakens attempts to give you all the information you need. And no more.

Lets get started.

Include Citrus fruits in your diet

The family of oranges, lemons and limes is super-rich in Vitamin C, which has anti-oxidant properties that help your body to detoxify, creating a better internal environment for healing.

How do anti-oxidants work?

Our cells, during their routine metabolism produce ‘free radicals’. Sounds dangerous? They are. They can damage DNA. Anti-oxidants mop up these free radicals.
