Sheila Dillon's take on cancer and nutrition.

There is an interesting story by Radio 4’s Food Programme presenter Sheila Dillon on the BBC website  and in the Good Food magazine. She has had treatment for cancer as has her sister so they are well qualified to comment. I must say I was surprised to see such an article in anything associated with the BBC which is a bastion of protection of the establishment. The following is a quote from the article.

‘"It is now accepted by almost everyone in the scientific world that diet is one of the major causes of cancer. But there’s hardly a doctor in the UK who will tell you that there is also good evidence that what you eat after diagnosis also matters, despite hundreds of studies indicating that when you’ve got cancer, you should pay attention to what you eat.’"

You will find a video at the link here with a summary of Sheila’s comments on this subject.

There is no doubt in my mind that what we eat is critical in both our ability to prevent cancer and also vitally important if we are undergoing treatment - whatever treatment. The message clearly from Sheila Dillon'’s article is don’t wait for your doctor to advise on your nutrition, take personal responsibility.
