The format of the book allows you to reference the nutritional concerns of a particular diagnosis quickly so you can develop a proactive plan for intervention.
Chapters detail nutritional issues in cancer prevention, complementary and alternative medicine, hospice and palliative care, and more. Cancer sites covered include breast, colorectal, esophageal and gastric, head and neck, lung, pancreatic, prostate, and many more.
