It is well established that chemotherapy has very harsh side effects, one of which can be nausea, accompanied by lack of appetite and bad taste in the mouth.  But it is also important for a patient undergoing chemotherapy to stay as healthy as possible, which means not skimping on the calories and making sure that they get their vitamins.
