Cancer Survival is Spelled “LMNOP.”
Dr. Richard Frank—
Surviving cancer requires knowledge and hope, making good choices, lots of effort and sometimes, a lucky break (or two). In Chapter 8 of my book, I tried to encapsulate these many aspects into the helpful mnemonic LMNOP.
L is for Less fat in one's diet (especially saturated-fats and trans-fats)
M is for More fruits and vegetables
N is for No smoking
O is for Organize your life
P is for Physical exercise
The O is so important that it was recently published in Coping for Cancer. Please check it out!
