At the N.C. Cancer Hospital, patients tell us that they receive well-meaning but often conflicting advice from friends, family, acquaintances and internet sites about nutrition during cancer treatment and beyond. When combined with the side-effects of cancer treatment, this advice can provoke a great deal of anxiety at an already stressful time.

Here are some of the common questions patients have about cancer and nutrition.

Does sugar feed cancer?

Should I drink alkaline water and eat alkaline foods?

Should I eat only organic?

What foods boost the immune system?
