While the benefits of modern cancer treatments are becoming ever more evident, many cancer patients continue to be at risk for developing physiological and psychological treatment effects that may lead to premature morbidity and death. Nutrition is one important aspect that needs to be considered throughout the clinical spectrum of patient care and management. Malnutrition and its related symptoms are both frequent and deleterious consequences of treatment in cancer patients. Targeted nutritional interventions offer a new avenue for the prevention or management of malnutrition, cognitive impairment, obesity, osteoporosis, and other symptoms of critical significance.Despite the importance of nutrition in ameliorating the symptoms of cancer treatment, publications providing up-to-date information on novel nutritional approaches and strategies are lacking. This book is intended to fill the void by describing in detail the nutritional strategies that may be employed to alleviate a wide variety of cancer treatment effects. The guidance provided will help to improve the survival and quality of life of cancer patients, and has the potential to dramatically affect how evidence-based clinical practice is established and improved over the coming decade. The author is a distinguished expert in the field who has more than 25 years of experience in oncology nutrition and has been involved in establishing and implementing a Clinical Nutrition Oncology Program.
