Macrobiotics and Cancer

We now recognise that the incidence of cancer is on the rise globally. Governments and the medical community worldwide is devoting considerable resources to developing more innovative and less debilitating treatments for cancer. One corollary of this focus is the increasing attention being paid to the macrobiotic approach to eating and the many studies on the link between diet and cancer. The studies review the effects on a range of cancers and are being conducted by some of the most well known research centres in the world, such MD Anderson Cancer Centre.
