Nutrition and Prostate Cancer

Presentation by Greta Macaire, RD on Answer Cancer Foundation

Diet, exercise and stress, three very powerful components to manage prostate that are within our own control. Studies in the past 10 years have provided significant empirical support for the role of diet and nutrition.

UCSF, its clinicians and researchers have been in the forefront of this effort. As well as personally consulting with thousands of prostate  cancer patients and their caregivers, Greta Macaire, the senior resident dietitian at UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center, has presented monthly on nutrition and PCa for more than 10 years.

Her presentation will address:

  • Balanced diet and nutrition for living with prostate cancer
  • Weight management during treatment
  • Diet and nutrition changes when in treatment
  • Healthy eating and recipes
  • Nausea and appetite problems
