Spring is in the air and nothing says spring like a ripe, juicy watermelon. Eating Well Through Cancer author, Holly Clegg, shared her go-to spring salad recipe with us. Complete with fresh tomatoes, basil, and watermelon, this salad is light, simple, and packed with antioxidants. Water accounts for over 90% of watermelon’s weight, but this fruit is rich in potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C. It’s also an incredible source of lycopene, an antioxidant known to help reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Holly Clegg’s Easy Watermelon Tomato Salad Makes 10 (1/2-cup) servings Ingredients: 4 cups scooped out watermelon balls[...]

Because there is no established standard-of-care for soft-tissue sarcoma aftercare, Posch and colleagues conducted a study with the hypothesis that “the rate is much more informative than the[...]
