A Healthy Lifestyle is Essential For Battling Cancer

By Eric C. Sharer, MPH, RD, CSO, CDN Butternut squash

It has been estimated by the World Cancer Research Fund that one-quarter to one-third of the cancers that occur in the United States are due to poor nutrition, physical inactivity, and excess weight. This research supports the Stram Center's belief that embracing a healthy lifestyle is essential for anyone whose life is unfortunately touched with cancer. A healthy lifestyle can be defined by diet, exercise, stress management, and sleep.

Follow the recommendations and recipes below to optimize your health for cancer prevention, treatment, and survival.

1. Minimize pro-inflammatory foods

2. Boost your immune system

3. Promote a stable blood sugar

4. Balance your hormonal risk

5. Maximize the nutrient density of your diet: antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals- kale salad

6. Embrace all aspects of a healthy lifestyle

7. Pick your battles

Plant-based foods are rich in protective compounds including antioxidants/phytochemicals, which help boost the immune system and fight off cancer. Plant based foods are also rich in dietary fiber, which helps keep the bowels healthy, as well as help to grab onto and pull out excess hormones, cholesterol, drug metabolites, toxins, etc. Antioxidants, phytochemicals, and dietary fibers are a huge part of protecting against and fighting cancer in the body. These compounds are only found in plants, which mean the animal based foods are lacking in these protective compounds. Make dietary changes at your pace, but always work towards including as many plant based foods as possible to optimize your health for cancer prevention, treatment, and survival. See the following blog post for a tasty fall friendly anti-cancer recipe.
