Eating healthy, not a cure-all for cancer

I came across an article today regarding healthy lifestyle choices that cure and/or prevent cancer. The implied notion that cancer is primarily caused by environmental factors really irks me the wrong way. There are too many folks out there who toss around claims as if they’re selling a product to consumers. Obviously some lifestyle choices can really cause cancer, e.g. using tobacco products. However, in my case, my oncologist stated that origin remains unproven, but my cancer was likely tied to genetics. Eating twigs and berries would not have prevented it, nor would it have served as a suitable treatment in lieu of surgery and chemotherapy.

Whoa fluids

There is something ridiculous about being hooked up to six IV bags at once. I’m glad to be getting out of here in an hour or so, but I still feel pretty darn tired. Bruno is an excellent co-pilot when it comes to napping on the couch. I plan to take him up on the offer as soon as I get home.

My sister is bringing me Luisa’s pizza (of NH fame) to my house tonight. Truly the best part of chemo is being encouraged to eat well- I get to eat all of the foods I skipped while dieting for the last couple years. Delicious!
