Kailey Proctor MPH, RDN, CSO joins the Nutrition and Wellness for Myeloma Chapter to answer the commonly asked question of which organic products matter when it comes to getting the best nutrition for myeloma patients and caregivers. What do we need to know about pesticides and chemicals when it comes to farming? What foods should we focus on buying organic- and which ones are a marketing ploy? Answers to these question can bring peace of mind. We can't wait to learn with you!
Type your questions in the chat and we will answer them!
