An Ayurvedic Approach to Breast Cancer
The American Cancer Society recently recognized the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and formal guidelines to cancer survivors.

However, while these guidelines give detailed advice for diet and exercise, they don't give clear direction for taking vitamins and supplements. With up to 80% of cancer survivors taking nutritional supplements regularly, are they just shooting in the dark?

Dr. Christine Horner, leading experts on breast cancer prevention, says there are essential supplements and vitamins that should be incorporated in anyone's cancer-prevention diet. She fills in the information gaps when it comes to dietary supplements and highlights the important guidelines recently issued by the American Cancer Society.
