How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

My husband is about 30 lbs underweight and cannot put any back on. He has his second injection of sandostatin this week....but, meanwhile...any suggestions? We consume the carbs sparingly because simple sugars feed cancer cells...I know this type is different, but, still nervous. Of course, its the carbs that help put weight on...does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks so much Robin

a few things he is doing to keep his nutrient energy levels up....for years we have used a couple of powdered whole food supplements...Barleygrass, Beets and Carrots. Along withsome other high power supplements he feels pretty good. I was keeping him off all sugars....yeah, right...I give up. He is eating like he always did, burgers, fries...ect...bad, bad boy! But, he has not read any of the carcinoid info and I think that has helped with attitude and overall feeling good. This stuff is so strange....

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
