Nutrition is important but you won’t likely get the advice you deserve.
A healthy diet and lifestyle could prevent half of all cancer deaths and close to half of all cancer diagnoses. (JAMA Oncology, 2016) Yet, there is a significant gap in access to reliable nutrition information for anyone who is cancer concerned. For example, researchers found that, on average, just one outpatient dietitian is responsible for serving more than 2,300 cancer patients at any one time. (J Oncology, 2019)
But that isn’t ideal, is it?
Seekers of nutrition advice often turn to the wrong sources.
In a recent study, breast cancer survivors who were recruited for the CARE Survey (JAND, Feb 2021), reported using the following sources for nutrition advice:
Are you among millions of cancer patients and survivors that bypass professional advice in favor of generalized advice from a layperson?
We get it. Financial strains, lack of time, and easy access to free information on the Internet seems like a reasonable approach.
But this kind of advice is unlikely to address your overall health needs. You don’t want more confusion and stress and you certainly don’t want to worsen your outcome!

Do you need to give up something that you really love?
Do you need to lose weight?
Younger women who carry a few extra pounds may be protected from breast cancer, but overweight postmenopausal women have an increased risk for a breast cancer diagnosis or recurrence. (JAMA Oncol, Nov 2018)
Should you give up coffee?
Drinking several cups of coffee a day may decrease the risk of estrogen receptor negative breast cancer and protect women with BRCA1 and BRCA 2 gene mutations (PLoS One, Jan 2013) but those at risk for bladder cancer who want protection need to limit their coffee intake. (Epidemiology, Sep 2018)
Is drinking juice bad for you?
Drinking sugary drinks (including 100% fruit juice) is associated with a general increased risk of cancer, but the link is more pronounced in premenopausal breast cancer. Sugary drinks don’t appear to be associated with lung cancer. (BMJ, Jul 2019)
How much alcohol is allowed?
Alcohol use has been linked with a higher risk of many cancers . When it comes to cancers of the colon and rectum, the risk is generally stronger in men than in women. (Cancers, Feb 2018)
Do you need to stay away from red meat forever?
Intake of beef, lamb and pork is not linked to melanoma risk (J Am Acad Dermatol, Aug 2018) but the evidence suggests a link between red meat and pancreatic cancer risk in men, but not women. (Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol, Apr 2017)
Do you need to avoid all dairy?
Most studies suggest that consuming dairy products is linked to a lower risk of colorectal cancers, while the majority of studies suggest that high dairy consumption may increase the risk of prostate cancer and may stimulate prostate cancer growth. (Front Nutr, May 2019)
