Good nutrition is important for cancer patients. Eating the right kinds of foods before, during, and after cancer treatment can help the patient feel better and stay stronger. Nutrition therapy is used to help cancer patients keep a healthy body weight, maintain strength, keep body tissue healthy, and decrease side effects both during and after treatment. Recently, a ketogenic diet has received attention for its successes in reducing tumor size. This will be a major focus of linking nutrition and cancer.
