Your Diet Can Help You Avoid Cancer


Cutting, burning and poisoning (surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy) do nothing to prevent cancer, nor can they reverse the underlying mechanisms that triggered or promoted its growth in the first place. Moreover, cancer will likely return somewhere else in the body if conventional methods are your only treatment strategy.

In his book Questioning Chemotherapy, leading author and consultant on cancer treatment Ralph Moss, Ph.D., explains chemotherapy to be an effective treatment option in only 2 percent to 4 percent of cancers: Hodgkin’s disease, acute lymphocytic leukemia, testicular cancer and choriocarcinoma.

That’s why prevention is key, especially when it comes to cancer. It’s easier to prevent an illness than it is to cure one.

If your diet is lacking essential nutrients, you’re creating the perfect environment for cancer to grow in your body. Numerous studies report a link between poor nutrition and the incidence of various forms of cancer.

Every food you eat is either healthy or in some way encourages cancer development. Unless you can only absorb nutrients through an IV, your diet in fighting cancer is as important as all other natural cancer therapies combined.

Here’s a list of unhealthy foods that encourage cancer:

  • Trans fatty acids: found in margarine, French fries, greasy foods with a long shelf life, processed foods, aspartame (used in diet sodas, NutraSweet®, Equal®, etc.), MSG and polyunsaturated oils (such as corn oil and canola oil).
  • Foods that feed cancer cells and/or microbes in the cancer cells and body: refined sugar, refined flour, soda pop, etc.
  • Foods that cause a low level immune hypersensitivity, reducing your ability to fight cancer: beef, turkey, chicken, lamb, pork and sea-bottom dwellers.

If you want to stay or get well, build your diet around fresh salads, vegetables, juiced grasses and sprouts for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eat plenty of raw whole foods, unrefined complex carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats from vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains (careful with breads), nuts and seeds.

The following is a list of “super foods” with the most scientific evidence of cancer-fighting properties:

  • Asparagus
  • Almonds
  • Beets
  • Berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries)
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Chlorella and spirulina (blue-green algae)
  • Citrus fruit juices (oranges, lemons and limes)
  • Green tea
  • Garlic
  • Grapes (purple)
  • Lentils (beans and peas)
  • Oats
  • Omega-3 oils (preferably from flaxseed oil)
  • Onions
  • Peppers
  • Pineapples
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Spinach and other leafy lettuces
  • Sprouts (wheat grass, barley grass and other sprouted grains)
  • Tomatoes
  • Walnuts
  • Wild salmon
  • Yogurt (farm-fresh plain)

    Left off this list is lemon. Freeze a compete lemon,
    then shave it totally on all your food. Lemon is reputed to be 30,000 times the
    power of chemotherapy.

    Before you submit to chemotherapy, require your oncologist to tell you whether
    he would prescribe it for himself or his family.]

    I asked my oncologist what she’d tell her sister if she had my cancer (melanoma and parotid at the same time!) about getting treatment. She said she’d tell her to do it. I chose not to. Instead I changed my diet to what you’ve described (I do eat small portions of local grown, hormone free meats). It’s been almost 6 years and the doctors still don’t see how I survived without “treatment”.

      Good deal! Congratulations!

    The evidence is everywhere, but stubborn, stupid people refuse to believe it and stay in denial…THEN they wonder why they got sick.

    I’ve heard of cancer thriving on refined sugar. Removing that from one’s diet might be an idea. Another is since cancer thrives on sugar, one who has cancer could take bicarbonate of soda with maple syrup to kill the cancer. Bicarbonate of soda is alkaline and since cancer thrives in acidic environments the soda eliminates the cells. Where the maple syrup comes in is cancer readily absorbs the mixture infusing the Bicarbonate of soda with the maple syrup.

      I heard a man lecture on this protocol a couple of years ago. He was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, doctors couldn’t find the cancer after he was on a macrobiotic diet with the bicarbonate/syrup regimen for 10 days. He maintained the diet and has been cancer free for over 5 years.
