War On Cancer podcast: episode 4

Does sugar feed cancer and should you “eat whatever you want” during and after cancer treatment? In War On Cancer podcast: episode 4 the app co-founders, Fabian and Sebastian, speak with Melissa Mogor – Public Health Advisor at World Cancer Research Fund UK and debunks diet and nutrition myths. Ultimately answering the questions Fabian and his loved ones had when he was diagnosed with leukemia, soon the be 5 years ago. 

You need to have enough energy to get through the treatment as the body is not functioning as it is used to. The nutrients your body is taking in (during treatment) is a fraction of what it usually took in, before cancer. If you are eating five oranges you might get the nutrients from half an orange and that is why we encourage everyone to eat as much as they can.” – Melissa Mogor, Public Health Advisor at WCRF

World Cancer Research Fund is a UK-based International not-for-profit association and a leading authority on cancer prevention research related to diet, weight and physical activity and in the latest War On Cancer podcast episode 4, the War On Cancer app co-founders Fabian and Sebastian engage in a conversation with Melissa Mogor, with the goal to figure out what to eat/what not to eat when going through cancer.
