TopMedTalk in Collaboration with MacMillan Cancer Support in the UK developed this podcast series to support patients during their cancer journey amidst the COVID 19 crisis.
We know food gives us energy "but it also provides so much more". This podcast looks at the raw materials you'll need, when facing a cancer diagnosis, to get a better outcome; the vitamins, minerals and proteins, as well as the energy sources you're best using.
What is a balanced diet when you have cancer? "We're talking about eating well to stay well [...] we're not really looking for people to lose weight"; it's often important for people to try to maintain their weight during a cancer diagnosis, should you track your weight throughout your cancer journey?
Recorded at the height of the COVID 19 crisis this podcast also reflects upon how this information is applied in the context of a global pandemic. What foods can we store which also contain the vital building blocks of our body's natural defenses?
Presented by Nick Margerrison with his guest Clare Shaw, consultant Dietician at The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust.
