I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”

Fats as Part of Your Anticancer Diet

The big bad guy in the fat world is one you have probably heard of: partially-hydrogenated oils, otherwise known as trans fats. Trans fats raise your bad cholesterol and lower your good cholesterol. While the FDA has banned their use, you will still find these partially hydrogenated oils on ingredient lists. These are oils you should avoid completely if possible.

Here is a chart you might find helpful that shows you fats you might want to limit, fats that are better options, and fats that need more research to know whether or not they should be part of your Anticancer diet.

Including fat as a healthy part of a balanced diet is important. Just remember to…

  • Limit processed foods, since these usually include trans fats and inflammatory omega-6 fats
  • Limit fats from animal products
  • Emphasize those fats high in omega 3s such as olive oil, avocado oil, and nuts and seeds
