Nutritional information can be confusing and sometimes seemingly contradictory. 

UC San Diego Health offers nutrition counseling to help you understand dietary habits that may help reduce your risk of certain cancers, improve your well-being during treatment and possibly reduce your risk of recurrence. Our clinical dietitians stay up to date on the most current nutrition research and information so we can help you make the best nutritional choices.
