Dietary Restriction reduces the side effects of chemotherapy and improves its efficacy in Breast Cancer Patients 

Dietary Restriction can reduce side effects of chemotherapy and can make treatment more effective as it protects normal cells from toxic effects of chemotherapy while sensitizing cancer cells to the treatment. Normal cells deprived of nutrients enter into a dormant stage which is triggered by genetic cues. This allows them to resist high levels of stress. Since cancer cells don’t respond to these genetic cues, they attempt to keep growing and dividing, becoming more susceptible to treatment.
