Making Sense of Nutrition and Supplements in Cancer
Nutrition is an area in which individuals with cancer often have many concerns. These concerns include the role of nutrition in potentially causing or preventing cancer. Media presents conflicting nutritional messages leaving patients confused about what advice to take. However, recent research has identified foods and/or supplements that may be important in the prevention of cancers as well as the reduction of recurrence. Dr. Duvall discusses the foundations of healthy diets that aid in making someone's body as cancer unfriendly as possible so that individuals can make informed choices in light of changing recommendations. Beyond diet, choosing appropriate supplements and complementary therapies can be overwhelming as well. Dr. Hardy guides those interested in complementary approaches and nutritional supplements to choose those supplements that are most likely help maintain health or reduce disease risk. The goal of this lecture is to help patients, their family members and others interested in preventing cancer to be as well educated as possible in making sound lifestyle choices.
Insights Into Cancer lectures are held in the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Auditorium, B Level, Room B130, 757 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90095.
