Research has shown that at least 60% of all cancers are diet-related. Following a healthy and well-balanced diet including adequate amounts of cancer-fighting, immune-enhancing and inflammation-reducing foods is essential to reduce the risk of developing cancer. The risk can also be reduced by avoiding harmful and contributing foods, products and cooking methods.

Maintaining healthy body weight is also considered essential to prevent the development of many cancers. Obesity is a major contributing factor to the development of cancer of the oesophagus, uterus, endometrium (lining of the uterus), prostate, pancreas, colon and rectum, kidney, thyroid, gall bladder as well as post-menopausal breast cancer.

Furthermore, the nutritional status of clients with existing cancer is most often compromised by the cancer disease itself as well as cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

Our dietitians are equipped to support clients not only to adjust their diets and lifestyle in an attempt to reduce the risk of developing cancer but also to ensure an optimal nutritional status for clients with existing cancer while undergoing cancer therapy as well as once they are in remission.
