For which cancers should Semolina be avoided [Video]

🌟 Read More:https://addon.life/2022/03/16/reduce-semolina-intake-for-these-cancer-types/Semolina like other plant based foods have health benefits and is included in the diet of cancer patients and those with genetic risk of cancer. But, the intake of Semolina may need to be reduced for some cancers and cancer treatments. A belief but a myth is that everything plant based can only benefit and do no harm. That is true if the food intake is in moderation. For example, grapefruit with certain medications is not recommended. Also spinach with some blood thinning medications can cause adverse interactions and hence intake should be reduced. For cancer, nutrition which includes food and supplements are important decisions which need to be made. Hence the frequently asked question related to cancer is β€œWhat Food Should I Eat and What Should I Avoid?”.Benefits of foods like Semolina can be scientifically explained for cancer patients with BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia taking Vincristine treatment. But reduce intake of Semolina for Cervical Adenocarcinoma and Bleomycin treatment .Similarly, the benefits of eating Semolina can be scientifically explained for healthy individuals who are at genetic risk of cancer due to mutation of the gene MITF. But reduce intake of Semolina when at genetic risk of cancer due to mutation of gene PDGFRA.The takeaway being – for cancer individual conditions can influence if food like Semolina is recommended or not. As conditions like ongoing treatments and supplements change the nutrition plan must be personalized again. Which cancer, current treatments and supplements, age, gender, weight, height, lifestyle and genetic conditions are decision factors for your nutrition.https://addon.life/onboarding/☝ Create Personalized Nutrition Plan for Cancer 🌟 Here is an example of nutrition planning https://addon.life/sample-report/βœ… Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/addonForCancer/βœ… Twitter: https://twitter.com/addonForCancer/βœ… Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/addonForCancer/βœ… Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/addonforcancer/βœ‰ Email: nutritionist@addon.life | Β© Copyright 2021, addon.life.
