Nutrition during chemo

Can anyone suggest a good book on nutrition during chemo? I have heard that certain nutrients can often play an adjunctive role to more aggressive forms of treatment by increasing tumor response and decreasing toxicity. Anybody got any info.

    Many people on this site will recommend the book "Beating Cancer with Nutrition" by Patrick Quillin. Another good one that I have read is "Nature's Cancer-Fighting Foods" by Verne Varona.

    I love Quillin's book too and recommend it all the time. Another good book for COLON health (not necessarily cancer) is The Maker's Diet by Dr. Jordan Rubin. He healed his intestinal disease so his book is chock full of really really good colon health info.

    A Cancer Battle Plan by Anne Frahm is another good book about healing cancer (but not about during chemo per se).

    Hope this helps.
