Not CLL related, but given we usually reconsider our diet when we receive a cancer diagnosis, I thought many would be interested in what Rebecca Charlotte Reynolds, Lecturer in Nutrition, UNSW Australia has written: 'Light or “lite”, 99% fat-free, reduced fat, low fat, less fat, reduced calorie, low calorie, lean, extra lean – are products with these labels always healthier?'
Interesting discussions in the comments section too. I liked this by Sue Ieraci: 'There is so much pseudoscience in diet. Meanwhile, the processed food companies that convinced us to eat sweetened low-fat products are now selling us coconut fat and fancy sugars and salts.
In the background, the nutrition profession advises that we mainly eat fresh, whole foods and minimise processed foods, fats and sugars. It’s still sound advice.'
