CANCER CARE

Cancer is a multidimensional disease that involves abnormal cell growth with the potential to spread to other parts of the body. Cancer treatments typically cause adverse effects that are more upsetting to patients (hairloss, nausea). While fighting against cancer cells, it alters the body’s ability to break down macronutrients into usable forms, leading to loss of muscle and fat. Appetite and nutritional requirements vary due to a variety of factors from emotional stress to cancer treatment.
