Many cancer survivors say that a loss of control was one of the most difficult aspects of dealing with cancer. Research shows that people who take steps towards goals generally feel better and advance than those who feel they have no control over their situation. Knowledge is critical in understanding and fighting cancer. Choosing the correct food that nourishes your body and boosts your health is the most important gift you can give yourself.
