I, on the other hand, always strove to be healthy...a largely plant based organic diet, avoided processed meat, lots of exercise, never overweight, minimal alcohol use...yet I am the one who ended up with cancer.. not my overweight, sedentary, beer drinking, salami eating family members. So I would say a small serving of salami now and then (in the setting of a healthy diet and lifestyle overall) is fine.
Could you please share this link with us.mpbser wrote:Then I don't understand why the NCAN guidelines recommend a plant based diet.
Maybe there are no specific studies on reoccurrence, but is quite likely that reoccurrence follows the same rules as primary cancer, and then it is reccommended to avoid meat and especially processed meat. Maybe once you have had cancer your odds are more dependent on other factors, but still it is worth to eat a plant based diet also because of sustainability.

My onc, Dr. B, is a huge advocate of exercise, especially walking.
