At Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers, our dietary approach is guided by several core concepts of Full Spectrum Nutrition and the Garden Food Plan®, such as:
- Sticking as close to Mother Nature as possible
- Focusing on foods that are clean, wholesome, and organic
- Maintaining a nutrient-rich, balanced diet that nourishes our overall wellbeing
Simultaneously, we recognize that every body is different, and therefore, the journey to wellness must be personalized. Cancer treatment is not one-size-fits-all, and neither is cancer nutrition. For some patients, that means incorporating fish into an anti-cancer diet could be immensely beneficial. A source of lean protein, essential vitamins, and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fish can play a significant role in supporting health and cancer prevention when chosen and prepared correctly.
How to Select Healthy, High-Quality Fish
When it comes to selecting the best fish for anti-cancer benefits, there are a few crucial factors to consider:
- Ensure your fish is sourced sustainably, as these options tend to have fewer environmental contaminants.
- Opt for wild-caught fish when possible, as they typically have a more favorable nutritional profile compared to farmed fish.
- Ensure the fish you choose is low in mercury, as higher levels can pose health risks.
This is why snapper is a great option for the anti-cancer diet, as it’s not only delicious but also contains lower mercury levels!
