Organic, organic, organic. That is the mantra that you will hear. However, there are two aspects to nutrition. One is

General Dietary Advice for Cancer patients
The Penny Brohn Cancer Center in the UK provides some excellent general advice on diet.

Johanna Budwig Diet
I include this diet because it has a long track record and is relatively simple to apply. Information can be found at the Healing Cancer Naturally website.

The Gerson Diet
One of the most well-known cancer diets.

Macrobiotic Diet
I include this diet because of its popularity in the Arab world (as promoted by Miriam Nour) – generally it is considered a cancer prevention diet rather than a cancer therapy diet. There have been some variations introduced to the diet since its inception. I have provided a few links which explain the diet and one link that shows the problems with the strict application of the original Kushi diet, especially in already debilitated cancer patients.
