It’s official. According to the studies linked below, an organic diet results in fewer cancer diagnosis and/or a high quality diet helps cancer survivors live longer. Yes, organic foods, on average, do cost more. Life is all about priorities. Because I am a long-term cancer survivor, I’ve made organic, high quality foods a high prioritiy.

If you’ve never been diagnosed with cancer and you’re wondering if eating organic will reduce your risk of ever recieving a diagnosis of cancer, the answer is YES.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer recently and you are wondering if your diet makes a difference in your survival, the answer is YES.

A diagnosis of cancer is going to bring a host of questions. Answers to the questons below are not going to be addressed by your oncologistist unless you ask him or her. If you are not comfortable advocating for yourself, you can bring your primary caregiver along with you.

  1. Should I get a second opinion?
  2. Should I see a specialist for my type of cancer?
  3. Should I prehabilitate before my cancer therapy?
  4. What is integrative cancer therapy?
  5. What is complementary cancer therapy?
  6. What questions should I ask my oncologist?

Your nutrition, before, during and after your conventional therapies is only one of several issues for you to consider. I am a long-term cancer survivor. I can answer your questions with evidence-based information.
