Food Safety for Cancer Patients
As a cancer patient, your dietary plan should include fruits and vegetables, pulses, beans, whole grains, lean meat and low-fat dairy to improve your body’s strength and immune system. If your dietary plan meets all these requirements, focus should then shift towards ensuring that the food safety standards meet all the recommended guidelines as well. The proper preparation and storage of cancer-fighting foods varies based on the type of cancer that you have, your treatment and the ability of your immune system to fight off disease-causing bacteria and viruses present in food. Here are a few important food safety steps, which, implemented correctly, will allow your body to stay protected from food-borne illnesses and help you fight the battle against cancer.
