Breast cancer diagnosis and treatment overthrow patients’ lifestyle and eating behavior, generating an overall sense of lack of control and confusion. Thus, answering patients’ omnipresent question “What can I eat?” with the general “You can eat anything.” can incent extreme eating behaviors, usually separating patients in two groups:
“Breast Cancer ain’t Pink” is an oncology nutrition guide for breast cancer patients who want to understand how to feed themselves during treatment to counteract side effects and support treatment effectiveness, and a healthy eating and lifestyle guide for family members and friends of the patient who want to prevent this diagnosis.
This book – written by nutritionist-dietitian Diana Artene, doctor in oncological nutrition, based on the direct clinical experience with over 1000 breast cancer patients during the PhD in oncology conducted at the “Alexandru Trestioreanu” Oncology Institute in Bucharest, under the aegis of the Faculty of Medicine “Carol Davila” – tries to shed light on the chaotic information available online or given folklore from one patient to another.
From the fact that veganism, bio foods, dietary supplements with vitamin C or other antioxidants, alkaline water or red beet juice do not improve the prognosis, the fact that based on current scientific evidence the ketogenic diet is contraindicated to any cancer patient due to increased tumor aggression and of the risk of proliferation, metastasis and relapse – read and understand how extreme nutritional attitudes worsen the prognosis, transforming curable cancers into incurable cancers.
Breast cancer can be cured by proper surgical and oncological treatment, and you can contribute to your own healing by nourishing yourself!
