Find out more about nutrition and cancer

In addition to genetic causes, many environmental factors can increase the risk of developing a cancer. These include diet that can play an important role in preventing cancer, during cancer treatment and after cancer.

There are many recommendations on diet and cancer, often very divergent and sometimes without any supporting studies. To shed some light on the subject, we invite you to consult our Frequently Asked Questions section below. Note that this information does not replace the individual advice that must be given by a dietitian or doctor specialising in nutrition. For any questions of a personal nature please contact the Jules Bordet Institute's Dietetics and Nutrition Support Department.
