Health Tip: Eat Wisely During Cancer Treatment

By on February 11, 2016

People being treated for cancer often have a weakened immune system, making them more vulnerable to infection. This makes food safety particularly critical.

The foodsafety.gov website suggests:

  • When you prepare food, frequently wash your hands and keep kitchen surfaces clean.
  • Keep raw meat and poultry separate from ready-to-eat foods.
  • Make sure foods are completely cooked to the appropriate internal temperature.
  • Within two hours of cooking, refrigerate any leftovers, particularly meat or poultry.
