Cancer is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide and the second leading cause of death globally. According to WHO, the number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next 2 decades. Around one third of deaths from cancer are due to the 5 leading behavioral and dietary risks: high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity, tobacco use and alcohol use.
Generally, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are aggressive treatment methods that not only kill cancer cells, but also damage the healthy tissues of cancer patients, leading to various adverse and toxic reactions. Cancer patients usually have unique nutrition needs; a healthy eating plan can ensure them regain the strength and improve overall wellbeing.
Diet, especially TCM diet plays always an important role for the treatment and prevention of cancer in China. It must be true that a personal diet in Europe could also contribute a great deal for the supporting cancer treatment and prevention of cancer.
The seminar includes the following contents:
