Healthy Foods for Cancer Patients

Brothy soups and vegetables are two of the foods that are beneficial to cancer patients.


A nutritious diet during cancer treatment includes a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and protein, and very few fatty, fried or sugary foods. While no foods are really off-limits during treatment (when you're in nausea's grip, whatever you can keep down is fair game, right?), some foods are better choices than others.

These are foods that may work with you as you manage your treatments, whether it's chemo, radiation or surgery.

Important: Some studies show that the antioxidant effects of some foods could interfere with some chemotherapy treatments, so be sure to always consult a physician before adding any supplements to your diet.
