AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, SEEMS LIKE THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.
What cancer cells feed on:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.
To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Live a healthy and happy life. Consult your doctor to more …

    • Don’t add to your pain by believing this idiot. Some cancers cannot be cured, even with the best medicine and the best doctors in the world. Any doctors i have ever met who specialise in treating children and babies have been the most dedicated, unselfish people and the kind of people who would value curing a child way above any amount of money. Sorry you lost your child – I know what that feels like.

    • I just had surgery and I asked the doctor could I wait to have the surgery for one and a half months because my immune system was weak. The surgeon said no and then it appears they removed the wrong part from my body. CT scan was not done thoroughly as the physician ordered and it looks like I am going to need surgery again. I am not going too have the same surgeon and not because I think he did anything wrong but I think I could of waited until the CT scan was done properly. I feel he wanted the money not know but right now. I’m slowly dying and I chemo will never be an option for me. I will pray for you for healing of your lost of your baby.

  7. The Hoax: A Strong Immune System Destroys Cancer

    The Truth: When it comes to cancer and the immune system, it is not a matter of strong or weak as the fictional report contends, but rather an issue of recognition. “The immune system simply does not recognize cancer. In its complexity, the cancer cell has learned to disguise itself to the immune system as a normal, healthy cell. Cells infected with viruses or bacteria send out danger signals setting the immune system in action. But cancer cells do not, explains Elizabeth Jaffee, co-director of cancer immunology and leading expert on cancer and the immune system.” By deciphering the methods cancer cells use to make them invisible to the immune system, Jaffee and team have developed cancer vaccines that have successfully triggered immune reactions against prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, leukemia, and multiple myeloma.

  15. If a person lives in moderation in all areas of life watching what they eat, exercising and taking care of their spiritual and mental health, they put themselves in the category of living well.

  18. There are serious misunderstandings about how the body works here, and much of it is misinformation. Hoping something is true doesn’t necessarily make it true. Western science is the best method we have for determining the truth of a situation with randomized control trials. Anything untested in such a rigorous environment could be chance or placebo. An accumulation of anecdotes does not equal data. Check out Healthcare Triage on youtube for some clear thinking about science and medicine.

  19. Nutrition and lifestyle changes can help with prevention, but a cure (chemo, radiation, and/or surgery) is much more scientific and complex than can be explained in a blog post. People don’t understand these things, and the fear and what we see people suffer through is what makes us want to believe that these much more simplistic things can cure us. (I liken it to belief in a religion; it makes people feel better.) I’m a science and evidence based healthcare professional, but I also believe in incorporating alternative medicine. It’s not one or the other, particularly when trying to practice culturally sensitive based medicine. When you are dealing with something like cancer or heart disease, you HAVE to take a holistic approach. That’s what I read the Hopkins page as saying, but not what I read the blog post as saying. Anyhow…have a Happy New Year.

  21. Quoted from Snopes:
    “Information falsely attributed to Johns Hopkins called, “CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS” describes properties of cancer cells and suggests ways of preventing cancer. Johns Hopkins did not publish the information, which often is an email attachment, nor do we endorse its contents. The email also contains an incorrect spelling of our institution as “John” Hopkins; whereas, the correct spelling is “Johns” Hopkins.

    Another hoax email that has been circulating since 2004 regarding plastic containers, bottles, wrap claiming that heat releases dioxins which cause cancer also was not published by Johns Hopkins.
    The web site of Johns Hopkins’ Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center also notes of the “Cancer Update” e-mail that:
    It has become such a problem that the National Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society, and individual cancer centers like the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center have posted warnings on their Web sites. Emails offering easy remedies for avoiding and curing cancer are the latest Web-influenced trend. To gain credibility, the anonymous authors falsely attribute their work to respected research institutions like Johns Hopkins. This is the case with the so-called “Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins.”

Soy (soy was mentioned as a good thing in this article) paprbens act like estrogen in your body. I try to avoid as much as possible. I take a pill that blocks hormones…. Starving the cancer. I eat all the fruit veggies etc that stop cancer. I still got it. I will only work with my doctor and pharmacist. They know what is best for me and my cancer. They also offer homeopathic and diet along with chemo and radiation. There are a lot of factors. Europeans are more likely to get cancer than Hispanics or blacks. If you had a certain Jewish background that puts you at higher risk for breast and prostrate cancer. (BRACA gene mutations). I pay no attention to articles that tell you how to avoid cancer. I had a false sense of security. According to the internet, and magazine articles I was at very very low risk. How do you explain someone who smokes and drinks everyday for most of their lives and never have cancer, then someone who lives a healthy life and has lung cancer? My advice eat healthy, know your family history and get regular check ups alongside with the ones recommended for certain ages.

As a member of the healthcare community, I recognized the inaccuracies of it and was surprised that such a reputable agency as Johns Hopkins could be behind it. Further investigation found this rebuttal from J.H.: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/kimmel_cancer_center/news_events/featured/cancer_update_email_it_is_a_hoax.html . I don’t know where you obtained this information (and there may be wholesome elements for healthy living imbedded in it), but it is clearly false. If only it was this simple, I certainly could have helped many patients over the years to avoid and defeat cancer.

  38. A few additions/corrections to this info. : (c) acidosis is probably the leading cause of cancer. pH needs to be understood as “voltage.” When voltage is measured in a solution, it is rendered in pH. A healthy cell functions best at minus 22 millivolts (7.2 pH). A damaged cell needs minus 50 millivolts to heal (7.5 pH). Soft drinks (especially the dark ones) have a pH of 2.5 and not only throw the body into acidosis but restrict the amount of oxygen in the blood (16). (12 & 13) Taking a powerful digestive enzyme with cooked or processed food fixes the problems with undigested proteins, fats, sugars, carbs, etc. and, taken on an empty stomach, enhances oxygenation of the blood by a factor of 5 and also breaks down cell shells of virus and bacteria. (e) distilled water is the same molecular configuration as cell water and if treated with mineral enhancers such as Xooma’s X2O, it becomes extremely alkaline and is the most bioavailable source of hydration on the planet. The main key to a strong immune system is a full complement of neurotransmitters. Most people are neurotransmitter depleted because if the body is deficient in even one of the minerals needed to make it, it doesn’t get made. Alcohol, caffeine, unfermented soy and artificial sweeteners ALL block mineral absorption in the body. We need IONIC minerals, which can bypass the digestive system. Best source for these is Marine Phytoplankton. (Taking a mineral supplement without a powerful digestive enzymes is just flushing your money down the toilet). And finally, Hypothyroidism is epidemic, and the standard tests can’t detect it. Fluoride replaces the Iodine in thyroid hormone and renders it useless. To function correctly, our cells need an energy molecule (ATP) as fuel. ATP is manufactured in our mitochondria and the fuel the mitochondria need to produce it is thyroid hormone. Fluoride is almost impossible to filter out of water and it’s in your bottled drinks, soups, the entire food chain. Distillation is the only sure way to get rid of it. Also, root canals produce an extremely toxic carcinogen called thioethers. These nasty little buggers can completely shut down your immune system. Think about it.

Any enzymes taken orally (whether in meat, vegetation, or medication form) are broken down into amino acids by the digestion process (ironically, by other enzymes) and even if they were a part of our body’s defense mechanism (in their original form) they wouldn’t do any good at that point.

  60. Thank you for posting this. I’ve no idea who you are or why you care about people healing from and/or avoiding cancer, but I’m glad that you’ve shared this important information.

    I agree with most of the above (except for the one or two points that I’d never heard about before and will consequently research further). However, although I know I probably seem like a relatively non-credible source, being a random person on the internet, I’ve got a couple of things I’d like to add:

    a) Tea can be herbal and thus free of caffeine. Herbal teas can have great health benefits if used properly; thus, it is ok to drink herbal tea if you’ve got cancer, but not all that great to drink caffeinated tea. Also avoid teas that have “flavour” or even “natural flavour” in them if no one in the store can tell you exactly what that is. Instead, drink tea that’s got very clear ingredients with no added flavours or sweeteners. What doctors say about coffee, red wine, and chocolate being “good in small doses every day” basically means that they don’t want to hurt the feelings of anyone who is an avid coffee drinker/wine drinker/chocolate eater. Just keep in mind that you can get the benefits of any of those things from other foods. Blueberries, for example, are a great source of antioxidants, and are much healthier than chocolate and red wine.

    b) Cottage cheese mixed with flaxseed oil, both of which are organic: this, through personal experience (my mother is a cancer survivor, and one of her friends who had cancer also tried this, and they got the idea from extensive research on natural cancer treatments), I know to reduce tumour size significantly. Both women were scanned by some machine (MRI? CAT? whatever it is doctors use nowadays) for tumours, told they were going to have an appointment for surgery in a couple of months, and sent home to deal with it. After eating cottage cheese mixed with flaxseed oil every day in the intervening time, they were scanned again and told by very surprised doctors that their tumours had become unexpectedly small. My mom also recommends 100% pure cranberry juice, watered down with spring water (no additives of course) if you can’t stomach the sourness.

    c) It is possible to find meat free of hormones and other harmful substances if you care enough to look hard enough to find it. The same goes for milk. I’ve no knowledge of the connection between milk and mucus and cancer cells, but if you want to drink milk and be healthy in general, the stereotypical grocery store brands aren’t going to help you much. Speaking of which, if you live in a place to which it is impossible to get fresh fish, then when you’re looking for fish to buy, look for the kind that has been frozen WITHOUT using sodium phosphate. Also avoid farmed fish and go for “wild” instead. “Atlantic” does not mean that it’s from the Atlantic ocean, it’s just a name for a type of fish.

    d) Genetically modified foods are also probably a good idea to avoid, along with any other man-made thing for which its level of harmfulness/helpfulness is “undetermined”. Same with things that have canola oil or any form of preservatives.

    e) It would be awesome if you could share a link, if it exists, that leads to the information you’ve posted above – this would help with credibility. If there’s no link, consider citing information using an accepted citation style! It’s hard to convince skeptics if you’ve got no sourcing. I know my mom has read tonnes of books on the subject and I can find out the names of some of them if you like, but I don’t have them on hand at the moment.

    f) If you’ve got cancer or know someone who’s got it and are/is having a hard time, try searching up cancer support groups in your community! And if you live “in the middle of nowhere”, there’s probably one online that’s a good fit for you. But beware of any that think that cancer can be “cured” with a pill.

    That being said, best wishes and hugs to whoever is reading this and has been impacted by cancer in some way.

  61. It is irresponsible to imply that cancer can be avoided/sent into remission if someone changes his or her eating habits, or adopts these guidelines to successfully prevent cancer. As valid as it may (or may not) be – the implication is that the cancer sufferer is somehow at fault for succumbing to the disease. It is wrong to blame the victim.

  67. Thank you for this common sense information. With regard to point #15, there is a reason why negative thoughts and attitudes are called “Dark”, while positive, happy thoughts and attitudes are called “Light”. Everything is Energy. Energy is neither created nor destroyed but is transformed by thought and actions upon it. The highest form of energy vibrates at such an intensity that we call it Light or Fire. We are a product of that Fire and Light and we live within a stepped down spectrum of frequencies that encompasses what we call physicality. We use that energy as we engage in a process of learning about this energy called Life as we define ourselves in relation to it. We, in effect, are constantly using that energy to create the framework in which we have chosen to experience that Life. We can choose to live in darkness or we can choose to live in light by how we choose to think and act within that Life.

    Life is about FLOW. A Dead Sea is called Dead because energy in the form of water flows into it while nothing flows out of it. We become as a Dead Sea when we become non-forgiving, judgmental, grasping, clinging, afraid to “let go and let live”. We in effect “dam up” the flow of the life giving energy which is abundant and available to all. We become a little cesspool in an ocean of abundance because of a sense of limitation, lack, deprivation, self pity, anger, etc. That cesspool is a pool of darkness and it breeds death. Cancer is just a manifestation of the stagnant, darkened energy that has turned from life to death.

    We created the stagnant darkness by our wrong thoughts, attitudes, feelings and how we use energy. We can uncreate that darkness by “SEEING” the Light Side of things and by directing that Light into our darkness. Instead of trying to run from pain, turn around and hold a Torch of Love to it. Let the Fire of Love consume that darkness and let it light up the dark corners of our mind. You can also AFFIRM the action of the Light and Fire to speed up the process of consuming that darkness. The Violet spectrum of light has been used in many medical applications. There is a Spiritual Dimension of the Violet Fire that is able to transmute all forms of negativity back into light. This simple little Affirmation helps accomplish that: “I am a being of violet fire, I am the purity God desires”. God is that Light and Fire Energy (Deu 4:24, 1 John 1:5) and his desire for us is Eternal Life, not death.

    Deu 30:19 “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”

Unfortunately, it greatly undermines the credibility of what you are writing. For example on two points you make contradictory statements which both can’t be true. In point “11e” tells someone to refrain from drinking caffeine and yet you advocate green tea. Green tea is a fairly high source of caffeine and is a tea, which by definition, you recommended avoiding. In point “11a” you advise to avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners, yet recommend honey. Honey, while naturally derived (as is sugar by the way), IS pure sugar. Other information that is posted is highly controversial and should be supported with facts. The 11a discussion on salt is completely off-topic as you have not shown how it related to cancer at all. 11b – soy is highly controversial and many studies suggest that it is toxic to the body and should be avoided. 12, where is the source for this? Mammals were designed to eat meat. And chicken and fish are just as difficult to digest and would also, by your definition, become putrid. As stated in the beginning, I am not just trying to be critical – on the contrary – you raise awareness to many important points. I am just asking that you address these issues so that the contradictory advice does not undermine the validity of your recommendations.

Case in point “Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.” Distilled water is just water which has been boiled and the water vapour collected. It leaves all the impurities behind so you just have pure water, it’s like filtering but better. Distilled water is pure H2O and therefore neutral, because for every acidic ion it can make, a basic (alkaline) one is produced too. The oxygenated one is rubbish too. One of the main causes of cancer is cell damage through oxidation, in addition when exercising you use more oxygen, which resultsin the muscles sometimes not getting enough and having to rely on anaerobic respiration (respiration without oxygen). That’s why you get cramp.

    Not just your body also your mind. Cause depressions or bad mood etc are caused by a lack of healthy food and/or a problem with your digestion (anti-biotics like to kill our own bacteria. The good stuff we need to digest properly). When your body cant digest in the right way it starts to store it as fat. Most people with “diet-problems” have digestion-problems!

    The Truth about the “Cancer Update” Email Hoax

    Emails offering easy remedies for avoiding and curing cancer are the latest Web-influenced trend. To gain credibility, the anonymous authors falsely attribute their work to respected research institutions like Johns Hopkins. This is the case with the so-called “Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins.”

    The gist of this viral email is that cancer therapies of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy do not work against the disease and people should instead choose a variety of dietary strategies.

    Traditional therapies, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, work. The evidence is the millions of cancer survivors in the United States today who are alive because of these therapies. We recognize that treatments don’t work in every patient, or sometimes work for awhile and then stop working, and there are some cancers that are more difficult to cure than others. These problems are the focus of ongoing cancer research.

    We’ll go through each statement in the email hoax and provide real responses from Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center experts.

    Statements:

    The Hoax: Everyone Has Cancer Cells
    The Hoax: A Strong Immune System Destroys Cancer
    The Hoax: Cancer is Caused by Nutritional Deficiencies and Supplements Will Correct Them
    The Hoax: Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy Harms Normal Cells. Surgery Causes Cancer to Spread
    The Hoax: Cancers Feed on Certain Foods
    The Hoax: Cancer is a Disease of Mind, Body and Spirit
    The Hoax: Oxygen Kills Cancer Cells

    The Hoax: Everyone Has Cancer Cells

    The Truth: Cancer is a genetic disease resulting from a variety of mutations and alterations either inherited from our parents or, more commonly, acquired over time due to environmental exposures and behaviors, such as smoking and poor diet. These alterations turn off important cell growth regulators allowing cells to continually divide unchecked, explains Luis Diaz, a clinician-scientist in Ludwig Center for Cancer Genetics at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. This type of cell is called a malignant or cancer cell. Among the trillions of cells in the human body, inevitably everyone has some abnormal or atypical cells that possess some of the characteristics of cancer cells, most resolve themselves and never result in cancer, says Diaz.

    There is no single or standard test for cancer. There are ways to screen for certain cancers with tests such as colonoscopy for colon cancer, mammography for breast cancer, PSA for prostate cancer, and the Pap smear for cervical cancer, and these tests can detect cancers in a very early and curable stage. For many cancers, there currently are no screening tests, and they are diagnosed when they begin to cause symptoms.

    Diaz and other Kimmel Cancer Center researchers are working on new tests that detect abnormal DNA shed by cancer cells into blood and body fluids and have the ability to find cancers before they cause any symptoms. Approaches like this could lead to a broad-based screening test for cancer.

    Tests like these also are being used to detect cancer recurrences and malignant cells left behind following surgery, and can find cancers that are not detectable under the microscope or in x-rays.

    Other researchers are studying cancer stem cells. They are stealth cells that make up just a tiny fraction of a tumor. While small in number, investigators believe they may be the cells that drive certain cancers and lead to cancer recurrence. Therapies that target these cells are now being tested in clinical trials.

    A team of our breast cancer researchers has developed a method that could make it possible to detect breast cancer from the DNA contained in a single drop of blood.

    But, while evasive cancer cells are a challenge and the focus of ongoing research, it does not mean, as the email contends, that all patients, even those treated successfully for cancer, have cancers-in-waiting—undetectable but still there. People are treated and completely cured of cancer everyday.

    The Hoax: A Strong Immune System Destroys Cancer

    The Truth: When it comes to cancer and the immune system, it is not a matter of strong or weak as the fictional report contends, but rather an issue of recognition. “The immune system simply does not recognize cancer. In its complexity, the cancer cell has learned to disguise itself to the immune system as a normal, healthy cell. Cells infected with viruses or bacteria send out danger signals setting the immune system in action. But cancer cells do not, explains Elizabeth Jaffee, co-director of cancer immunology and leading expert on cancer and the immune system.” By deciphering the methods cancer cells use to make them invisible to the immune system, Jaffee and team have developed cancer vaccines that have successfully triggered immune reactions against prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, leukemia, and multiple myeloma.

    The Hoax: Cancer is caused by Nutritional Deficiencies and Supplements Will Correct Them

    The Truth: Dietary habits and lifestyle choices, such as smoking, contribute to the development of many human cancers, says Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center director William Nelson. Our experts recommend a balanced diet as a way of reducing cancer risk. In terms of supplements, Nelson points out that while they may help mediate vitamin deficiencies, taking doses above what the body needs provides no added benefit.

    The Hoax: Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy Harms Normal Cells. Surgery Causes Cancer to Spread

    The Truth: Chemotherapy and radiation therapy kills cancer cells with remarkable selectivity, says Nelson. There are some temporary and reversible side effects common to cancer therapies, including hair loss and low blood counts. Limiting and managing these side effects is an integral part of treatment.

    Surgery is the first line of treatment for many types of cancer. It does not cause cancer to spread. Cancers spread to other tissues and organs as a tumor progresses and cancer cells break away from the original tumor and travel through the bloodstream to other body sites.

    Back to top of page

    The Hoax: Cancers Feed on Certain Foods

    The Truth: The premise is that cancer cells feed on certain foods, and if a person refrains from eating these foods, the cancer will die. According to our experts, a poor diet and obesity associated with a poor diet is a risk factor for the development of cancer. However, there is no evidence that certain foods alter the environment of an existing cancer, at the cellular level, and cause it to either die or grow.

    While there is such a thing as tumors that produce mucus, the mucus made by a tumor does not result from drinking milk. And, eating less meat, while a good choice for cancer prevention, does not free up enzymes to attack cancer cells, explains cancer prevention and control expert Elizabeth Platz.

    Moderation is key, says Platz. As part of a balanced diet, sugar, salt, milk, coffee, tea, meat, and chocolate—the foods the “Update” calls into question—are all safe choices, she says. The real concern with many of these, particularly sugar, is that it adds calories to a diet and can lead to obesity, and obesity is a major risk factor for cancer. A balanced nutritious diet, healthy weight, physical activity, and avoiding alcoholic drinks may prevent as many as 1/3 of all cancers. Platz recommends eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables per day and limiting red and processed meats, like hot dogs.

    Several Johns Hopkins experts participated in the World Cancer Research Fund – American Institute for Cancer Research report Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity, and the Prevention of Cancer: A Global Perspective, published in November 2007, which is considered by cancer prevention experts to be an authoritative source of information on diet, physical activity and cancer. Their recommendations for cancer prevention and for good health in general are:

    Be as lean as possible without becoming underweight.
    Be physically active for at least 30 minutes every day.
    Avoid sugary drinks. Limit consumption of energy-dense foods (particularly processed foods high in added sugar, or low in fiber, or high in fat).
    Eat more of a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes such as beans.
    Limit consumption of red meats (such as beef, pork and lamb) and avoid processed meats.
    If consumed at all, limit alcoholic drinks to 2 for men and 1 for women a day.
    Limit consumption of salty foods and foods processed with salt (sodium).
    Don’t use supplements to protect against cancer.
    Our experts recommend that people meet their nutritional needs through their food choices. While vitamin supplements can be helpful in people with nutritional deficiencies, evidence suggests that supplementation above what the body can use provides no added health benefit.

    The Hoax: Cancer is a Disease of Mind, Body, and Spirit

    The Truth: Cancer is a disease caused by genetic alterations. Many times, these alterations occur through our own behaviors—cigarette smoking, a poor and unbalanced diet, virus exposures, and sunburns, says cancer prevention and control expert John Groopman.

    How stress, faith, and other factors influence this is largely unknown. We would like people to be happy, loving, and stress free, simply because it is a nice way to live and can contribute to an overall feeling of well being, says Platz. There is no evidence, however, that a person prevents or causes cancer based on his or her state of mind.

    Still, we understand that a cancer diagnosis can make patients and families feel stressed and anxious, and these are not pleasant feelings. So, we offer extensive patient and family services, including a cancer counseling center, pain and palliative care program, chaplain services and a meditation chapel, an image recovery center, and the Art of Healing art and music program.

    The Hoax: Oxygen Kills Cancer Cells

    The Truth: Platz recommends regular exercise as a part of any healthy lifestyle, but says there is no evidence that breathing deeply or receiving oxygen therapy prevents cancer.

    On its Web site, the American Cancer Society includes the following statement about oxygen therapy, “Available scientific evidence does not support claims that putting oxygen-releasing chemicals into a person’s body is effective in treating cancer. It may even be dangerous. There have been reports of patient deaths from this method.” Read more

A healthy immune system tracks down unhealthy cells and destroys them – if you have a steady supply of glutathione. Immunocal has been proven Patent CA 2142277 anti-cancer therapeutic compositions for prophylaxis or for treatment of cancer. Immunocal is a natural source of the glutathione precursor cysteine for the maintenance of a strong immune system. It is fat-free and contains less than 1% lactose and has a high protein biological value (<110BV) providing all essential amino acids and this natural product is listed in PDR and CPS. This discovery is the result of over 40 years of research at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Many have been able to suppress tumour growth, eliminate carcinogens, mutagens, retard oxidative damage to DNA, prevent wasting disease and ease the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Without glutathione you die! Take a look at the research at http://www.immunotec.com/iamokay..until there is a cure ..there is Immunocal.

If a plant-base diet is best for humans, how come the incidents of cancer are so low within the Inuit populations? Just by the nature of their physical location, eating a diet made up of 80% vegetables is all but impossible. While plant food is a fantastic source of fiber and other vital nutrients, it is not the only (or even best) alternative. Other diets such as Paleo, Blood-Type, and Geno-Type offer much more realistic dietary solutions with the same healing characteristics.

    What they don’t say is how OUR WORLD causes cancer. Plastics, chemically treated materials, gases, carcinogens, radiation, etc. that people are exposed to on a daily basis do not help. The stress we put on ourselves doesn’t help either. Hell, typing this on my PHONE will probably give me cancer! We as a people have conditioned ourselves to live with these conditions, and yet we’re surprised when the overexposure kills us. We may have a chance if we revert back to a more primitive way of life, but even that doesn’t eliminate the stress factor.
    I say, be happy. They are right when they say a positive outlook has a lot to do with it. I’ll just enjoy the ride while I’m on it.🙂

  130. Technically, distilled water is neutral (neutral ph = 7.0). Its ph can become slightly acidic (5.6 to 7.0) as it absorbs carbon dioxide from the air. Adding a small amount of baking SODA (a substance with a ph of 8.0) can help bring the water back to neutral.

    Drinking distilled water is much better for you than drinking water as the process of making it (turning water into steam and letting it cool back into water) removes all of the minerals and poisons.

    Many people do not like the taste of distilled water as it has a ‘flat’ taste.

Long story short, I know plenty of people who have adverse reactions to chicken and are better off eating meat.

  148. Dear Premaseem,

    Normally I do not respond to articles like this, but since it got passed along through my friends circle (FB), I felt the need to at least point out one or 2 (major) errors (assumptions) in the above article.

    “12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.”

    This is a myth and stems from a lack of basic knowledge of the human body. I would like to refer you to the following article which explains it better than I can:

    http://www.gnolls.org/1444/does-meat-rot-in-your-colon-no-what-does-beans-grains-and-vegetables/

    In short: we are build from the get go (call it factory setting) to digest meat and we do that very well…

    “11 d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment…”

    The other one that I have a hard time to accept is the alkaline vs acidic environment our body supposedly needs to be in. It’s neither and both. You see, our body is divided into different zones, each one in a specific Ph state it needs to be in.

    Read / see the following:
    https://chriskresser.com/the-ph-myth-part-1

    I do agree that Chemo, radiation and surgery are *not* the answers. But like with everything, follow the money to understand why these are promoted as the only solution to cancer.

    Also, yes, sugar feeds cancer and should be avoided at all costs, even when you are healthy. (at least try to keep it to a minimum).

    And yes, alot of people are short on essentials minerals, vitamins and (animal) fats, combined with a poisoned environment (stress!) and toxic food, sets them up perfectly for dis ease.

    Closing, I would like to point you to this interesting theory:

    Puts a whole new dimension to the cause of cancer….

    Good luck with your pursuit for healthy living : )

Reason being is because I highly doubt any of this information will help my 7 month old daughter who has Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. Although chemotherapy is not really something we want our baby to endure, I somehow doubt cutting off coffee, tea or chocolate, which shes never had, or switching to soy milk instead of breast milk is going to help her very much. I also doubt changing her diet to grains and nuts will do much either nor will cutting back on meats, being she doesn’t eat meat either. Maybe I’ll try and tell her to have a more positive spirit about developing cancer at 4 months old.. Oh wait, she probably won’t have a clue what a positive spirit is being she’s only 7 months old.

    I’m sure you posted this to try and help people who want a different alternative to traditional methods of curing cancer, but I don’t think people, regardless of age, who have a stage 4 cancer of any kind want to read this, much less a father of a 7 month old baby who has cancer.
