One of the first things that most people ask when the subject of cancer prevention or treatment comes up is diet.  There is alot in the news today about organic foods and additives, including genetically engineered foods. The American Cancer Society has some good information on this subject and I have included it here.  While research is ongoing, there is no real evidence to date to support that organic foods are better nutritionally. You may find your answers as well as other interesting information in the following American Cancer Society publication.
