#9: Eat To Beat Cancer with Dr Ailsa Lumsden

24 Oct 2018

I invite fellow doctor and friend Dr Ailsa Lumsden - a training oncologist in London - onto the podcast. I met Ailsa a couple of years ago at a lifestyle medicine conference and since then we’ve become really good friends.

On this episode, we discuss

  • What is Cancer?
  • The evidence on how lifestyle factors can help prevent and manage cancers of various types.
  • An insight into the duty of a cancer doctor and the importance of maintaining a patient centered approach
  • The importance of normalising the conversation around cancer and treatment options
  • Sugar and cancer
  • Who’s fault is cancer
  • The link with Obesity
  • The biochemical effects of vegetables, fruits and nuts on cancer
  • Exercise and cancer, during and after treatment

GUEST: Dr Ailsa Lumsden

Since qualifying with a medical degree with honors in 2005 Ailsa has been working as a doctor in the NHS. Over the last 13 years her training has focused on managing cancer (medical oncology). In 2016 she was awarded a PhD in molecular biology for her thesis on prostate cancer and microRNAs at Imperial College London. Her own journey managing her chronic illness has made her very a passionate advocate of exercise, nutrition and the role that a healthy lifestyle can play in treating disease. Active on social media - she promotes healthy living as a way to prevent cancer and also demonstrate the realities of juggling life as a cancer doctor and a mother of young children
