Diet Modifications Found to Benefit Breast Cancer Patients

Nutrition education may help prevent breast cancer re-occurrence
Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

Researchers from Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil undertook a study to evaluate the effect on cancer patients of reduced consumption of red and processed meat, and increased consumption of fruit and vegetables.

The researchers found that patients in the intervention group showed significant reductions in red and processed meat, consuming 50% less than peers in the comparison group. Comparison group patients also had two-times greater body weight increase during the study. Both red and processed meat consumption and body weight increases have been linked with increased oxidative stress, which has been shown to affect increased cancer recurrence. Fruit and vegetable intake was also increased among the intervention group and likely helped those patients limit BMI, unlike the comparison group, which had three times higher BMI over the course of the study.

"Although the sample size was small and data were collected at different times, this study provides evidence that women undergoing breast cancer treatment might benefit from immediate, individualized and detailed nutrition monitoring," lead author Cecilia C. Schiavon, MsC, concluded.

Dietary Guidelines for Cancer Prevention

Dietary Guidelines for Cancer Prevention | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it

Six dietary guidelines – more aggressive than previous cancer prevention advice.

Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

Doctors from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine have recommended guidelines for cancer prevention, and published their findings in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.

It is encouraging to see doctors beginning to accept, adopt and recommend what many natural therapists have been advocating for such a long time.

Their cancer-prevention guidelines emphasize a plant-based food diet, which builds meals around fruits, vegetables and legumes. Their six dietary recommendations to reduce the risk of several types of cancer are as follows:

1. Limit or avoid dairy products to reduce the risk of prostate cancer

2. Limit or avoid alcohol to reduce the risk of cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, colon, rectum, and breast

3. Avoid red and processed meats to reduce the risk of cancers of the colon and rectum

4. Avoid grilled, fried, and broiled meats to reduce the risk of cancers of the colon, rectum, breast, prostate, kidney, and pancreas

5. Consume soy products to reduce risk of breast cancer and to reduce the risk of recurrence and mortality for women previously treated for breast cancer

6. Emphasize fruits and vegetables to reduce risk of several common forms of cancer


There is considerable research to support these findings and recommendations. However the consumption of soy products is somewhat controversial, in that there is conflicting research about the benefits or dangers of soy products. What is commonly accepted is the benefits of fermented soy products.

Lady with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer Given Only 6-Weeks to Live Cures Her Own Cancer Naturally.

Lady with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer Given Only 6-Weeks to Live Cures Her Own Cancer Naturally. | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it

Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

A compelling interview with Felicity Corbin-Wheeler, a pancreatic cancer survivor and a former British Red Cross nurse. She was diagnosed in 2003 with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and given only 6-weeks to live. Now 12-years later she remains cancer-free.

Previously in 1989 her daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgins lymphoma and died within 2-years of that diagnosis at age 20, after following all of the conventional recommended chemotherapy and radiation therapies. Her 14 year-old son was also diagnosed with cancer of the appendix which was successfully removed.

Due to her children’s plight with cancer and her observation of her daughter’s pain and suffering as a result of her unsuccessful conventional treatments, she decided to become more familiar with other ways of dealing with cancer than the conventional medical approaches.

Fortunately for her, when diagnosed with incurable pancreatic cancer, she turned to what she had learned about other natural treatments and began a program of treating herself. This included Vitamin B17 Laetrile, DMSO, Vitamin C, Pancreatic Enzymes, and a change of diet and lifestyle in keeping with the Gerson Therapy.

Listen to the interview about her amazing story.

With so many people today turning away from conventional medical therapies for cancer and managing to cure themselves using natural and holistic methods, it is becoming increasingly difficult for medical science to proclaim with any authority that the only way to treat cancer is with chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. In fact the more one hears the praise of these conventional methods, the more those methods begin to lose credibility in the face of the reality of these cancer survivors who have chosen other ways to cure themselves.

Prostate Cancer Shown to Improve through Diet and Lifestyle Changes.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2008 Jun 17;105(24):8369-74. doi: 10.1073/pnas.0803080105. Epub 2008 Jun 16. Research Support, N.I.H., Extramural; Research Support, Non-U.S. Gov't; Research Support, U.S. Gov't, Non-P.H.S.
Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

It is often reported by medical ‘experts’ that diet and lifestyle does not have any effect on curing disease, stating that no studies have shown such benefit. Well studies have been done that do indicate diet and lifestyle changes modify genetic expression which directly and favorably influences disease cure.

A study was done study to examine changes in prostate gene expression in men with low-risk prostate cancer who declined immediate surgery, hormonal therapy, or radiation and participated in an intensive nutrition and lifestyle intervention while undergoing careful surveillance for tumor progression. Their gene expression profiles were obtained prior to the study and again 3-months into the study. Analysis detected 48 up-regulated genes and 453 down-regulated genes as a result of the nutrition and lifestyle intervention.

What the researchers observed was that the activity of disease-preventing genes had increased while a number of disease-promoting genes, including those involved in prostate cancer and breast cancer, had shut down.

Woman with Stage 4 Breast Cancer Cures Herself Through Changes in Diet and Nutrition

Woman with Stage 4 Breast Cancer Cures Herself Through Changes in Diet and Nutrition | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it
Dr. Ruth Heidrich healed stage 4 breast cancer with nutrition in 1982. Since then, she's won 6 Ironmans, and 67 marathons. And she's 80!
Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

The concept of healthy food choices is given lip service by the medical establishment, which does not really believe or promote diet or nutrition as a way of treating disease or remaining disease-free.

Cancer in particular is one disease that medical science asserts must only be addressed therapeutically through chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Those same professionals whose knee-jerk reaction tends to immediately reject the concept of beneficial effects of nutrition on cancer, are likely have no training in this field.

Yet there are an abundance of studies in nutritional science that have been around for quite a long time which clearly indicate that nutrition has the ability to prevent and to cure many diseases, including cancer. The work of T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional biochemist who specializes in the effect of nutrition on long-term health, published in his books “The China Study” and “Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition” is an excellent introduction to the available evidence.

There is also a plethora of anecdotal evidence supporting nutrition in the prevention and treatment of chronic disease such as cancer and many others. In this interview Dr. Ruth Heidrich, a vibrant 80 year-old cancer survivor will explain to you why she chose only nutrition to overcome her stage 4 breast cancer that had spread to her bones and lungs. She also explains how she became completely cancer-free as a result of her new nutritional approach, and has remained that way for decades.

I recommend everyone with an interest in cancer, or who has family of friends with cancer, to watch this interview. Obviously there may be no acceptable scientific analysis of the biochemistry of how Dr. Ruth Heidrich cured her own stage 4 breast cancer with nutrition. However it is an undeniable truth (and an inconvenient truth for the medical establishment) that is being seen across thousands of people today who have chosen nutrition to overcome their own cancer, instead of succumbing to the chemotherapy and radiation approach.

Please watch the interview with an open mind and bear in mind that here is a lady that against all odds decided on her own logical approach to healing her body. A logical approach that is available to all of us.

Bowel Cancer in UK Men Increased 25%

Bowel Cancer in UK Men Increased 25% | Cancer - Advances, Knowledge, Integrative & Holistic Treatments | Scoop.it
Male bowel cancer rates have increased by more than a quarter in 35 years - but the figure is much less for women, a Cancer Research study suggests. (#Male #bowel #cancer on the increase, says Cancer Research.
Graham Player Ph.D.'s insight:

The results of a UK study highlighted an increase of bowel cancer in men of 25% over the past 35 years. In contrast, bowel cancer in women over the same period increased by only 6%.

 

Perhaps obesity, diets high in red and processed meat, low fiber diets, and lack of exercise could be the culprits.
