Eating Well With Cervical Cancer/ A-1 Home Care Whittier

Did you know that January is cervical cancer awareness month?

A-1 Home Care is dedicated to providing healthful tips for our elderly clients with cervical cancer. Today, we're focusing our efforts on diet. According to experts, seniors and adults with any type of cancer should avoid consuming nitrates in their food. Nitrates are natural substances found in the air, surface water, ground water, soil, and plants. Food manufacturers also use nitrates are also to give processed and cured meat a deep red color.  

Vegetables and fruits contain large quantities of antioxidants, and nitrate consumption becomes a lesser concern when elders are consuming mostly plant based diets.
