Approximately 156,000 people died in 2010 in the UK from various types of cancer (Cancer research 2012). Screening and treatments now mean that many more people survive than did in the past.
Advice to those being treated for various types of cancer on nutrition can be of vital importance to both enhancing the outcome of treatments plus feelings of well being.
Unfortunately about 40% of those with cancer have been found to suffer from protein energy malnutrition
Such malnutrition can markedly affect the outcome not to mention feelings of well being for the sufferer. Indeed patient demise can be severely exacerbated due to malnutrition.
This is a paper from me on the subject which is in Nutrition and Food Science
