This entry is part 8 of 21 in the series That Cancer Conversation


When thinking about cancer treatment, our first thoughts may be about surgery or chemotherapy. 

But what about what we eat? 

In this episode, we hear from Dr Clare Shaw, a lead cancer dietician and therapy researcher who has written multiple books with the Royal Marsden Hospital, including The Cancer Cookbook. And Professor Karen Vousden, co-founder of Faeth Therapeutics, a company looking at how diets could help beat cancer. 

From taste changes to the keto diet, we sit down with our knowledgeable guests to help us scratch the surface of the vast world of diet and cancer. And help us navigate through the question ‘Could food improve cancer treatment?’
