Nutrition is an important basic need in cancer treatment. Several studies have shown that for example with a mediterranean food style (like in Italy, south of France, Greece or Spain) the frequency of cancer is significantly reduced.
By a health orientated nutrition the resources of the body to fight against cancer can be supported. Therapeutic nutrition means not only providing the body with enough energy, it also means that all nutrients are important for a good function of the immune system and the organs. This is best guaranteed by a broad variety of foods following a mediterranean food style, freshly prepared fruit and vegetable juices.
Strict diets for cancer patients have not shown advantages.
