AVOIDING CANCER: NOT GETTING IT, HAVING EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR IT, AND NOT HAVING IT RECUR

CAUTION FOR SUPPLEMENTS DURING CANCER CHEMOTHERAPY

Added Aug, 2012 - Many chemotherapies were discovered in Aug, 2012, to actually promote the formation of cancer rather than reducing cancer. All the more reason to rely on nutrition and vitamin C treatment to cure or prevent cancer.

Written in July, 2012, after a physician and friends asked me to research what can be done if one has had cancer.

1) Roc's anticancer soup - I like Ramen noodles as the base in the winter. In the summer I pick vegetables right from the garden. Be sure to include cruciferous vegetable - broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, take your pick. Add as much turmeric and cayenne as you can manage well. There's a quick and easy lunch or dinner. Apparently canned soup may have a slight problem, because of materials that may leech from the can.

2) The No Fours Diet - Eating anything from four legged animals causes a constant state of inflammation in your body, great for promoting cancer. Here's the evidence why. The China Study is a fabulous book that I use in my nutrition class. It is about a major nutritional study in China that showed how meat promotes cancer. Processed meats are particularly hazardous. Germany has the highest consumption of processed meats in the world, and the highest rate of stomach cancer. I believe New Zealand has the highest rate of meat consumption overall, and the highest cancer rate.

3)A 2010 Nature publication lists dietary modifications to prevent cancer - To answer a physician's inquiry, I investigated nutraceutical hedgehog inhibitors. Hedgehog is a gene involved in cancer, and pharmaceuticals used to treat cancer connected with hedgehog pathway mutations are very expensive, so he was curious about nutraceutical alternatives. Here's what I found: Science and Nature are the two top science journals, and I read and mention Science often. But I found this 2010 Nature article with recommendations for dietary habits that I already follow to prevent or slow cancer in your body: a) soy (for isoflavones),
b) curcumin (turmeric) (I eat a lot of vegetable soup and add this and cayenne to the soup),
c) green tea (5 cups has been shown better than 3, but even one daily is good - I brew 4 every morning and try to drink it during the day),
d) resveratrol (I take a supplement of this each morning),
e) cruciferous veggies ( I have frozen broccoli and brussel sprouts that I add to that veggie soup, or eat them directly getting at least a serving daily)
f) lycopene (lots of cooked tomatoes - pizza and spaghetti)
g) vitamin D (I take a 2,000IU tablet daily)
h) I do not take selenium because it has been shown to increase the risk of cancer in supplement form - too much is hazardous
i) The article does not mention capsaisin, found in cayenne, that is also very promising in cancer prevention. As mentioned in b), I put it in soup whenever I get soup, several times a week at least.
j. Lipoic acid - I take the supplement Juvenon to obtain this. It helps chemotherapeutic treatments penetrate dense tumors more effectively (see cancer refs).

4) Cancer and vitamin C - Here are key references to papers demonstrating how intravenous vitamin C dramatically improves the effectiveness of chemotherapies for all forms of cancer tested. The treatment involves getting 10g of vitamin C intravenously. As the references show, thousands of people annually are currently getting such treatments. Unfortunately, most current medical dogma, such as the Mayo Clinic, does not recognize that after Linus Pauling showed the effectiveness of vitamin C for cancer, independent trials used only oral vitamin C, which is not effective at raising serum levels high enough to kill cancer cells, as explained in the PNAS publication of the mechanism by which C kills cancer cells without harming normal cells. I am a colleague to the top NIH expert/physician on cancer and intravenous vitamin C therapy, if you need someone to speak with your physician. Help finding doctors administering intravenous vitamin C.
