Nutrition Tips for Cancer Patients

Walk with music in your heart. If you can't sing, listen to the birds, and the wind, and even the cars on the highway. Music is everywhere, we just have to listen for it.

Good food is everywhere, we just have to seek it out.

The cause is a huge part of the cure - Poor dietary choices can be turned around and modified, even when we are out in society. It is never too late to make healthy choices, no matter how you decide to treat the cancer.
