How food impacts cancer

JOHNS HOPKINS, A POPULAR PHILANTROPIST FROM BALTIMORE AND WHOSE BEQUESTS HAVE FOUNDED MANY MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS, WAS AN ADVOCATE OF CHEMOTHERAPY. ATER YEARS OF TELLING CANCER PATIENTS THAT CHEMO IS THE ONLY MEANS THAT COULD PURGE CANCER, HOPKINS IS FINALLY BEGINNING TO TELL YOU THERE’S ANOTHER WAY.

Cancer and Nutrition Facts:

  1. Each individual has cancer cells in the body. However, until these cancer cells will multiply to a few billion cells, they cannot be clinically detected. After a treatment, when healthcare practitioners say, “there are no more cancer cells in the body,” what they mean is that the cancer cells have reduced in number to the point that the tests cannot detect them anymore.
  2. Cancer cells take place between six to more than ten times in a person’s lifetime.
  3. When an individual’s immune system is strong, the cancer cells are destroyed and thwarted from increasing and forming tumours.
  4. Multiple nutritional deficiencies can cause the cancer cells to multiply.
  5. Shifting to a healthier diet that includes supplements will boost the immune system.
  6. Chemotherapy, although it is a widely used treatment for cancer, can post greater risk to human health. While it kills cancer cells, it also destroys healthy cells, affecting the gastro-intestinal tract and the bone marrow. Furthermore, it can also cause damages to internal organs like kidneys, liver, heart, and lungs among many others.
  7. Like chemotherapy, radiation also destroys cancer cells; however, it burns and damages tissues, organs and healthy cells in the process.
  8. It is true that the initial treatment using radiation and chemotherapy usually reduces tumour size. But, extensive use of both cannot destroy the tumour completely.
  9. Both radiation and chemotherapy produce toxins which compromise or destroy the immune system. As a result, cancer patients often succumb to different kinds of infections and complications.
  10. Both radiation and chemotherapy can facilitate mutation of cancer cells, making them resistant to the treatment. Surgery on the other hand allows the cancer cells to metastasize.
  11. There are foods that feed the growth of cancer cells and the way to prevent them from growing in number is to STARVE them. Cancer cells thrive with:
    • Sugar – a known cancer-feeder. Reducing or cutting off sugar from the diet also cuts off a significant food supply of cancer cells. Substituting sugar with known sweeteners like Spoonful, Equal, or NutraSweet is equally harmful as these are made with Aspartame. For a healthy substitute, use molasses or Manuka honey. Take note to use these sparingly. When it comes to salt, the regular table salt we use has chemicals added to it to make it white. Substitute it with sea salt or Bragg’s aminos
    • Milk – this causes the body to manufacture mucus, particularly in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer is fuelled by mucus. By removing milk in the diet or substituting it with unsweetened soy milk, the cancer cells will starve.
    • Meat – this produces acid, which is needed by cancer cells to thrive. Substitute meat with chicken and fish. Beef is a healthier choice over pork. Furthermore, non-organic meat contains growth hormones, parasites and livestock antibiotics that are harmful, particularly to cancer patients.
    • Creating an alkaline environment for the body is essential in keeping cancer cells from increasing. A diet with 80% fresh vegetables, juice, whole grains, nuts, seeds and a little amount of fruits put the body in alkaline mode. The remaining 20% can be taken from cooked food including legumes and beans. Fresh vegetable juices are preferable because they provide live enzymes that the body can easily absorbed down to cellular levels, nourishing and enhancing the growth of healthy cells.
    • To maximize the benefits of live enzymes, drink fresh vegetable juice that includes bean sprouts, couple by eating raw veggies at least 2 times a day. Cooking vegetables at 104 degrees F or 40 degrees C can destroy enzymes; thus juicing them or eating them raw is more beneficial.
    • Avoid consuming caffeinated products like chocolate, tea, and coffee. Green tea is a healthier alternative because it has properties that fight off cancer. Nonetheless, water remains to be the safest liquid to take aside from healthy juices. For water, choose to drink filtered or purified one to avoid ingesting heavy metals and toxins that are usually present in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, so better avoid it, too.
  12. One of the important nutrition facts to remember is that meat protein is hard to digest, which often requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Any undigested meat remains in the intestines and will become putrified, leading to added toxic build-up.
  13. The walls of cancer cells are covered by a sturdy protein; thus decreasing meat intake empowers more enzymes to destroy the cancer cells’ protein walls, killing the cancer cells in the process.
  14. Supplements like Flor-ssence, IP6, Essiac, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and EFA’s build-up the immune system, enabling the body’s natural killer cells to annihilate cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E can cause apoptosis – involuntary death of cells, which is a normal process taking place inside the body to dispose damaged, unnecessary and unwanted cells.
  15. Cancer is not only a disease of the body, but also of the mind and spirit. A positive spirit helps any cancer fighter to become a survivor. Negative feelings like anger, bitterness and unforgiving only subject the body to stressful and acidic surroundings. Choose to love and forgive; learn to unwind and enjoy life.
  16. Cancer cells hate oxygenated environment and exercising helps in getting more oxygen; thus doing it daily, even just a simple breathing exercise, already helps in warding off cancer.
