While this sort of approach is interesting, and I am all in favour of adding to our knowledge base, it seems clear to me that the most powerful approach to fighting cancer is to boost the immune system.
Since being diagnosed terminal cancer almost 5 years ago (my battle with melanoma started a bit over 6 years ago – though I have been having small cancers removed for 30 years), and sent home “palliative care only”, I have done quite a bit of investigation and testing on myself.
My regime of a heaped teaspoon of Vitamin C (pure L ascorbic acid) dissolved in a glass of water twice daily (as close to 12 hours apart as possible), and a vegan diet; has worked for me, and for the two other people who have actually tried it and stuck to it, that I know personally.
I have varied things, had tumours come up, had them surgically removed (4 times) and made them go away just with diet (5 times). 3 years and 9 months since the last tumour (since I last lowered the Vit C intake).
I have no shadow of reasonable doubt remaining that the greatest cause of cancer is our move away from a fresh plant based diet. The evidence seems strong that for most people if calories from animal products exceed 10% of total calorie intake, the risk of cancer rises substantially – plateauing at 30%.
The modern epidemic of cancer seems more about corporate interest in profit from long shelf life foods than it is about anything else.
We’d all be a lot healthier eating fresh plants and removing refined sugars – and it isn’t easy.
I was a carnivore for 55 years (meat 3 meals a day, with snacks of beef jerky and salami), and a chocoholic. Going cold turkey off sugar and animal products was one of the hardest things I have ever done – and it worked.
So yes – interesting research, and if you have cancer I strongly advise boosting your immune system with the Vit C and plant based food regime.
