Just finished reading a very interesting article called, 'Cancer nutrition tips' that suggests ways for chemotherapy patients to eat healthy and battle the effects of nausea often associated with chemotherapy. http://linkbee.com/nutrition101 These tips are very common sense and could help anyone. Do you have any common sense nutrition tips that you'd like to share?

This is an very interesting and useful article. I will pass it on to my friend's who have relatives battling cancer at the moment. Well, I will say I don't really have much tips. However, the below are just "common tips" which not all practice: - Eat 2 servings of fruits and vegetables everyday. - Try to cut down on high sugar, high fats, high salt or deep fried items. These are not good for us.

A lot of people ignore and do not include the vegetables and fruits in their diet. It is especially so with the younger generation. As for the passing of the articles, that's no problem. I do hope that I can help them too with this article. I do hope that the rest who read this discussion could do the same.

Those are great ideas & I think my mom used them or tried to use alot of them (I lost he to cancer in June 2007). My common sense tip is when I feel that I'm starting to get sick, I double my fruit & vege intake & try to add garlic to every meal coz as we know, garlic can scare everything & everyone away :p

I read that cancer is rare in India. A study was done to find out why. The study found that it is the curry spice. Specifically, tumeric, which is in curry. I would suggest cooking with curry if you like the taste or taking a tumeric supplement as prevention.
