Cancer.Net and the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service have collaborated on an infographic of food safety tips for people with cancer. This infographic is an excellent way to help your patients understand which foods are safe to eat, which foods to avoid, safe internal temperatures of meats, symptoms of food poisoning, and questions to ask the doctor. Direct your patients to www.Cancer.Net/blog to view this new infographic as well as additional resources on food safety. ■
