- The treatment of cancer carries a significant risk for acute and late cardiovascular toxicities.
- Acute toxicities include hypertension, vascular
thrombosis, vasospasm, and myocarditis.
- Late toxicities include atherosclerosis, valvular
heart disease, and conduction system disease.
- Following a plant-based diet, engaging in regular
aerobic exercise, smoking cessation, and other lifestyle modifications in cancer survivors can mitigate the cardiovascular toxicities.
