Several quotes supporting the value of lifestyle changes after cancer diagnosis: (source Reuters Health via Medscape, 4/12/05)

"Evidence from observational studies and retrospective analyses of randomized trials is now sufficient to support clinical trials of life-style interventions with an anticipated improvement in survival comparable to that seen for many current systemic adjuvant treatments," writes Dr. Rowan T. Chlebowski from Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute, Torrance, California in a related editorial.

"An important follow-up to this study would be to explore how weight loss influences survival," Dr. Kroenke said. "I have been working to develop a study about particular aspects of diet that might help women to maintain weight after a breast cancer diagnosis."

"There is good evidence to suggest that a healthy diet and physical activity, which may help women to maintain healthy weight, may also improve survival after diagnosis," Dr. Kroenke added.

Cooking With Cancer

LINK:"Cooking with Cancer is a program designed specifically for cancer care of those persons who are afflicted with cancer, care givers of the patients, and all of those who work in the healthcare industry. The content is recipes researched and tested on patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.

In 2003, tired of seeing the same full cans of supplements on daily rounds and untouched meal trays, Dr. Luis F. Pineda enrolled in Culinard Institute to combine the art of cooking with the knowledge of medicine. His motivation is the patients past and present he has provided care for through his 26 plus years as an oncologist".
