Prostate cancer nutrition videos now available
Sunday, September 9, 2018
Three new videos on nutrition and prostate cancer by Dr. Rachel Murphy and colleagues are now available online.
The short videos—which are each under 8 minutes long—address separating diet myths from facts, healthy eating guidelines for men with prostate cancer, and tips to help men with prostate cancer stay on track with their dietary goals.
The purpose of the videos is to improve uptake and reach of nutrition evidence as part of supportive care for prostate cancer patients across BC. Prostate cancer treatment can have many negative side effects, and nutrition can help prevent or lesson the impact of these side effects.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian men, and it is the third leading cause of death from cancer in men in Canada.
The production of the videos was funded by a grant Dr. Murphy and colleagues received from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research in Fall 2017.
