Many cancer patients experience weight loss and may have to wait several weeks before being able to see a dietician for help and advice. However a new website has now been launched to help them with their diet and nutrition. The site contains easy to prepare recipes and also advises on the best high calorie and protein rich foods for patients to eat. The site also contains a forum where patients can interact and share tips and advice with others. There is also a team of healthcare professionals available who will answer any questions on nutrition. The idea is that the site will help cancer patients to get the best diet and nutrition possible during their illness. To find out more, click on the link shown below:-
Meanwhile a cancer expert from the World Cancer Research Fund has advised that salt should be banned from the dinner table in a bid to improve the nation’s health and that we should stick with just the pepper instead. Experts argue that because salt is already added to our food by manufacturers, adding extra salt is just making things worse. Salt has been linked to stomach cancer and excessive use can cause high blood pressure and increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. The recommended daily intake is 6g of salt a day but the majority of Britons digest much more than that. Instead of using salt, why not use alternative flavourings such as lemon or lime juice, herbs, spices, peppers or onions. Your heart and health will thank you for it.
