Show Notes

Nutrition is top of mind in any discussion related to cancer, but it can feel overwhelming trying to wade through the information and misinformation that's out there! 

My guest this week is Tamar Rothenberg, MS, RDN, a registered dietitian who specializes in recovery after breast and ovarian cancer in her private practice in Los Angeles. She has a Certificate of Training in Vegetarian Nutrition; and co-led the clinical study, Coping with Cancer in the Kitchen, published in Nutrients. She is the author of a new book, Cancer Diet for the Newly Diagnosed (Rockridge Press, March 2022).

In our chat, we cover some of the most common questions Tamar sees in practice, including two hot-button topics - soy and sugar.
