Life After Treatment: Emotional Impact

Many people expect life to return to normal after cancer treatment has ended. But instead, they are blindsided by feelings of stress, depression and fear of recurrence.

Join us tomorrow as we explore the emotional fallout of recovery. Dr. Wendy Harpham, cancer survivor and author of “After Cancer: A Guide to Your New Life,” will share her advice for dealing with post-treatment emotions.

And, as always, you'll get a chance to ask the experts your questions.

Dietary Factors

Phytochemicals. Some data suggests that diets rich in fresh fruits and vegetables may be protective against lung cancer in both smokers and non-smokers. Some studies have reported protection from specific food chemicals (phytochemicals), such as the following:

Isothiocyanates. These chemicals are found in the cruciferous vegetables (e.g., broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts). These may help block the effects of carcinogens in smoke, suppress tumor growth, and inhibit growth-promoting steroid hormones.

Flavonoids. Major sources are apples, grapefruit, onions, red wine, and tea. In one study on flavonoids, apple eaters had the lowest cancer risk, 68% less than those who ate fruit infrequently. In another, those who ate relatively more onions, apples, and white grapefruit had less than half the lung cancer risk as people who ate relatively small amounts of these foods. Flavonoids are also found in soybeans, berries, broccoli, carrots, citrus fruits, eggplant, peppers, squash, and tomatoes. Specific flavonoids in dark chocolate may be protective against lung cancer (but not other cancers).

Lycopene. Lycopene is found in tomatoes, which have been associated with a lower risk for lung cancer. Cooking the tomatoes appears to increase the potency of lycopene.

Cryptoxanthin. Some studies suggest that eating foods rich in cryptoxanthin, a yellow-orange pigment, reduces the risk for lung cancer. Foods with high amounts of cryptoxanthin include pumpkin, corn, papaya, red bell peppers, tangerines, oranges, and peaches. More research is needed in this area, however.

Isoflavones. Isoflavones, found in soy beans and flax seed, behave like estrogen in some ways and not in others. Some evidence suggests the genistein in soy may have properties that are protective against lung cancer.
