Webinar on eating well after cancer
This webinar for health professionals looks at how to return to a "normal" diet after cancer
After cancer, some people may feel anxious about food and eating – especially if they've had to follow special diets during treatment.
In addition, specific cancer treatments can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, so some people may benefit from adopting “heart healthy” diets following cancer treatment.
And there is also emerging research that following a healthy diet may reduce the risk of cancer recurrence.
This webinar explores the various aspects of eating well after cancer.
