Another interesting point about gluten/refined wheat etc is that Ray Francis also says it's a definite no-no in his book cited above - pp 76 and 130-135. So yes, I'm pretty sure there's something in this, and a connexion with a predisposition to developing cancer is virtually proved.

@ happydays - By happy coincidence, this arrived in my Inbox today. Hope you find it of interest:

Eat More Of These 9 Anti-Cancer Foods

My grandmother always said: "Once you get older, you'll know what I'm talking about now... You have more aches and pains and your health becomes more of a worry."

She was right. Now that I am older, I do worry more about my health... and one of the things that is often on my mind is cancer, especially since we've had a few cancer diagnoses in our family — ranging from breast to colon cancer...

The truth is, with our modern lifestyles, people are under a lot more stress and we are all exposed to multiple carcinogenic agents on a daily basis. It's no wonder that cancer rates are soaring.

This is why taking preventative action to steer clear of this terrifying disease, is so important... and it doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg in supplements.

Here's a list of everyday cancer-fighting foods that should be in your kitchen at all times:

1. Antioxidant-rich berries

Flavonoids are well-known to be crucial in the prevention of cancer. As powerful antioxidants, flavonoids can be more potent than traditional antioxidants like vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, selenium and zinc.

Snacking on flavonoid-rich berries daily, rather than nutrition-less sweets, is a great and tasty way to get optimal cancer protection. These berries include currants, cherries, cranberries, hawthorn berries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries.

2. Turmeric

"If I had only one single herb to depend upon for all possible health and dietary needs, I would without much hesitation choose Turmeric." That's a pretty strong endorsement for a humble herb and it comes from Dr. David Frawley, Founder of the American Institute for Vedic Studies.

Turmeric contains the phytonutrient, curcumin, which has been found to be anti-inflammatory and cancer-inhibiting. For instance, a 2007 study that combined curcumin with chemotherapy to treat bowel cancer cells, showed that the combined treatment killed more cancer cells than the chemotherapy alone. Another study in mice showed that curcumin helped to stop the spread of breast cancer cells.

Most studies on turmeric as a powerful cancer-preventative show promising results, but much more human clinical trials need to be conducted before curcumin will be recognised by the mainstream as a potential cancer treatment.

3. Cruciferous vegetables

These vegetables include cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, cress, horseradish, kohlrabi, mustard, radish and turnip. They are beneficial because they contain the phytonutrient, glucosinolates, which has been found to detoxify certain carcinogens and help lower cancer risk, especially colon cancer.

4. Garlic

Garlic contains about 200 biologically active compounds, such as sulphur containing amino-acids, glutathione and cysteine, that have powerful protective functions against cancer formation, growth and metastasis. For the best effect, garlic should be eaten freshly chopped and raw. But if the smell and taste of raw garlic is really intolerable, it could be lightly stir-fried with vegetables, or boiled in soups.

5. Mushrooms

Mushrooms aren't only tasty to eat, those like reishi (Ganoderma), shiitake and maitake, which the Chinese and Japanese have been using for thousands of years to boost immunity, have been shown to have powerful cancer-protective properties.

6. Yoghurt

Various species of probiotics (eg. Bifidobacterium lactis) present in yoghurt have been found to improve immunity and detoxify many carcinogens, including hormones, meat carcinogens and environmental toxins.

7. Spinach

Long reputed for increasing power and energy (remember
Popeye?), spinach is also an anti-cancer food because it is rich in chlorophyll and carotene. Besides protecting you from cancer, it is also rich in iron, folic acid, vitamins and minerals, as well as the antioxidant coenzyme-Q10, which has heart-protective and anti-ageing properties.

If there's only one green vegetable to be eaten, then it certainly is spinach.

8. Fibre-rich foods

Fibre in plant foods is important not only for healthy bowels, it is also important for preventing colorectal cancer. Fibre facilitates the movement of food through the digestive tract, so there is less time for any carcinogens in one's food to be absorbed, and less carcinogens are produced by the "rotting" food in the gut as it passes through.

Whole grains (e.g. unpolished rice), beans, seeds, lentils and vegetables make rich sources of fibre, so be sure to include them in your daily meals.

9. Bee propolis

Propolis is a substance produced by bees to protect themselves and their hives against bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Rich in bioflavonoids, vitamins and amino acids, it has been found to have immune-boosting and anti-cancer properties.

Gr8 list dear Loquat.. but please bear in mind that when you have a disease, that disease is in you. You cannot get something out by putting something in. Fasting is the ONLY intervention that really helps your body to get OUT whatever is causing the disease.

True enough Doc., but I view this dietary advice as largely prophylactic during feeding rather than as a cure after the event. If I'm not mistaken, I think that was the primary intent of the author.

As for the efficacy of fasting in almost all cases, you are pushing on an open door. I couldn't agree more.

Thank you so, so much. All of you. I am rather overwhelmed with researching everything at the moment. I go back to see the specialist next Wednesday and shall update afterwards. I am awaiting the books being delivered from Amazon, including vegan ones. So far I have decided to utilise fasting (funnily enough!)and intense heat treatment. I am following a fasting pattern of three separate days per week which includes both nights and extends to around 4.00pm the following afternoon ie fasting for around 44 hours, 3 times per week. Currently researching Firzone far infrared home dome sauna which appears to be best used twice a week for 30 mins.
Ock - rebounding sounds great fun but unfortunately a neck injury prevents me venturing in that direction. Elizabeth -Thank you for sharing about your husband. His result has been truly great. Unfortunately the sub type I have is currently incurable but is very slow progressing. I am looking into the gluten situation but tend not to eat it anyway because it puts weight on me! I do agree with you that gluten is unhealthy. Happy fasting everyone. x

Quite a stiff program you impose upon yourself Happy! I do admire your resolve. Hopefully you'll get this into remission without medicine but please note that the entire approach may also make you a lot more sensitive for the effects of medicine so if your doctor recommends something after examining you, well, then it may work in much lower dosages or exert a more powerful effect.

Looking forward to sharing your journey.

@ happydays - Incurable you say? Well, if that's true, then you have nothing to lose by trying any of the recommended alternatives. And potentially everything to gain.

Thanks for the links and comments dear Loquat. Jus bear in mind any Internet address ending on ".com" is ".commercial". I try to source most information from ".edu". ".educational". My experience is that many academics finds their gratification in acknowledgement rather than material wealth.

In general.

Caveats & warnings duly noted - that's why I raised the ?'n about his motives. The criticisms you make (and many more besides) have been made elsewhere. But even if we assume the worse about him, that doesn't necessarily negate the validity of what he has to say. For example, this mini-series is offered for on-line viewing foc.

He may well also use it as an opportunity to promote his book, but again, there is no compulsion on the viewer to make any purchases. I certainly won't be buying. BTW, I checked this guy's 'credentials' with cancertutor.com, (which I believe is generally reliable & trustworthy) and Webster Kerr vouches for him. That's good enough for me to give him the benefit of the doubt, initially at least.

As for .edu being the sole repository of all truth, well, that's another subject in itself. I can give you chapter & verse that proves how much so-called 'science' has been subverted by 'financial incentives'.

I actually agree fully with you dear Loquat... we need to explore all and retain what we find to be good.

Cancertutor.com is once again a commercial site without any objective academic backing of course.

I never tried to insinuate that .edu is "the sole repository of all truth".. only that it is filtered a bit better than .com. For us lazy and/or busy people it reduces meaningfully the amount of filtering we have to do. An academic is typically more interested in making a name for him/herself, than making a lot of money. I know surgeons for example who became professors at a small fraction of the salary they earned in practice. Also I know academics who are just not corruptible.

Sure nothing is infallible. But for now it is at least one basic filter.

Agreed.

Yes, cancer tutor is a .com. In fact it's supported solely by voluntary contributions, which typically amount to $20-22k pa - barely enough to pay a single salary. Kerr himself does not sell any of the products described in his site.

As far as I know, he is not a shareholder in any of the companies, clinics, organizations, etc that do, has no other stake or interest in them, and receives no commission from them. He is predominantly a freelance volunteer who simply wants to get the truth 'out there'. Beyond that, I fully concur with what you say.

Thanks for your comments again, which are much appreciated.

I think I understand where you are coming from dear Loquat... "to get the truth out there". That is what every academic wants to achieve, including likely every professor of medicine in both capitalist and communist countries. But the site is full of "conspiracy theory" claiming that some companies are able to hide the truth from all these academics plus governments but not from their site... i would love to see some objectively evaluated results from their approaches.

The Good Book says "investigate all things and retain what is good" or something like that. Thus indeed we need to look at this also, but never, never ever, at the exclusion of anything else.

Well, actually I believe we are agreed in this principle. Thanks for raising a very intellectually stimulating issue.

Regrettably, quite possibly never in your lifetime or mine. We've had this discussion before, but nevertheless I say again - natural cures cannot be legally patented, so there's simply no interest in them by any pharmaceutical company worth its bottom line, for the simple reason that there is no money to speak of to be made from them. The types of 'objective' studies on which you insist (and which barely exist anymore even in mainstream medicine) cost millions.

Who is gonna spend that kinda money to validate alternative cures? Certainly not big pharma, who have nothing to gain thereby, and everything to lose. The doctors who administer alternative cures? They would love to, if they had the money, and were not working under the damocles sword of state intervention or legal action by the likes of FDA agents, etc.

No, this is an impasse that is almost next to impossible to surmount, and it will remain thus until the clamor rising from the 'alternative community' reaches a critical mass that can no longer be ignored by the media, govt. agencies, etc etc. Having said all that, the evidence is there for anyone willing to put in the leg work. For example, I can personally put you in touch with several mainstream docs who achieve unheard-off cure rates using alternative therapies.

But as you admitted yourself, that is too big an ask for busy/overstretched etc doctors who struggle just to make it thru their daily workload. Who has the time, or inclination, for that matter? Regardless of which, always a pleasure to debate these matters with you.

Yes loq, they use the word incurable but it can grumble away in the background for many, many years and is easily treatable when it flares up. Mine is in spontaneous remission which the doctors say is atypical. I feel the nodes went down because I fasted for two days in a row in prep for a surgical node removal (which did not happen - core biopsy instead). I will see what they say on Wednesday. Thank you for the link. I am about to watch the trailer now. I am overwhelmed with books to read at the moment!
Doctor - I am sure you don't remember me but I have been a site member for many years . I was a binge eater and fixed this by following your fasting protocol in "Health Won". I lost 113 pounds. I have been following a pattern of 2 extended (40ish hours) fasts per week to prevent weight gain so it has been a simple matter to extend this to 3 days. I sometimes wonder if the cancer was caused by all the junk food I ate?
Happy fasting everyone!

Hello Happydays...nice to see you. May I ask how you were diagnosed? Was it a blood test or biopsy? I have a friend who is going through something similar. No diagnosis but swollen lymph nodes. They told her it is possible she has lymphoma. She has been following Doug Kaufman's diet since last October and they have gone down. Also may I ask what your treatment has been since August to say it is now in remission??? Thank you.

Hello Elizabeth - my diagnosis came 2 weeks after the biopsy which was performed 2 days before I was discharged from hospital. As far as I know lymphoma cannot be diagnosed from bloods only. There are dozens of types. I supposedly find out (if the latest tests succeed!) on Wednesday, the exact sub type. Complete diagnosis seems to take around 6 weeks. A few of them remain dormant for long periods of time, sometimes years, and then become symptomatic again. Symptoms normally do not go away unless treatment ie chemo, radiation etc, is given. Mine went away completely with no treatment. Because it is low grade, the subtype I have is impossible to cure at the current time. Many of the more aggressive lymphomas can be completely cured by treatment. I do think that diet and fasting will help me prevent this progressing to a more aggressive type or deciding to take up residence in some vital organ :whistle: At the moment I am very well.
I do hope your friend is fine. Being on a healthy diet will definitely make a difference in any event.
