Fight Cancer With Food
The right nutrition may be a cure for cancer






This advice is information only.
We cannot create a menu specifically for you, but your doctor and nutritionist can. Please note that if someone designs a diet specifically for you without a thorough assessment of your own particular blood chemistry, you are engaging in quackery. A thorough assessment of one’s body chemistry is the only way to design a specific meal plan.

The experts hardly agree on anything. Here are a just a few of their disagreements: some diets recommend salt, whereas some, like the Gerson Therapy, recommend a salt-free high potassium diet. Chicken (skinless) can be found on some cancer diets, except at the Livingston Foundation Medical Center; the book, The Conquest of Cancer, dedicates an entire chapter to the carcinogenic aspects of chicken: "Chicken: Cancer in Every Pot." They admit that free range or organic chickens are better, but still should be avoided. Most diets call for a strictly vegetarian approach, but Gerson cooks the bulk of his vegetables, while most others call for live foods, and then there is Dr Nicholas J Gonzalez out of New York whose diets are prepared on an individual basis with some calling for fatty red meats depending on the patient's metabolism and biochemistry.

Good nutritional advice is at the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education in Pennsylvania. They have put together a cancer battle plan from the best of all nutritional advice and we will give it to you here.

Here are general guidelines, followed on the next few pages by in-depth information of a diet to fight cancer.

The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education puts it simply: a low fat diet lowers "bad" estrogen levels in women, and heavily refined, highly heated, over-processed, artificial, and chemically adulterated foods should be eliminated. In other words, you should consume organic, unprocessed or minimally processed foods. However, there is a problem here in that the Mediterranean diet is high in fat and breast cancer rates are lower there. So it is not just fat, but the types of fats we are interested in.

Olive oil contains essential acids as does flax oil.

Diets low in fat can kill a cancer patient.


Cancer cures and advice Index















Protomorphogens (PMGs) are the tiniest specks of life made specifically by your body for each kind of tissue and are necessary for the control factors involved in disease. The theory is that when an organ develops cancer, the PMG "blueprint" is altered. Cell reproduction goes uncontrolled. PMGs that promote cells to stop this crazy out-of-control growth need to work with fats. In early studies, it was shown that taking PMGs orally (the specific organ PMGs for a specific cancer) initiated a healing of that organ. Any dietary therapy must contain PMGs and eliminate sugars (or to be more specific, all processed foods).

Also keep in mind the condition of the animal the fat of which you are about to consume. Butter from an organically raised cow is much better for you than butter from conventionally raised cows.

Most medical scientists believe that healthy people get cancerous cells occurring all of the time, but because the people are healthy, their systems quickly get rid of the trouble without developing any tumors at all.

It is better to get your vitamins from the food you eat than from a bottle. We’ve been told this for years. However, this is true only if you eat organic whole foods. In our food, you might get more beta carotene from a pill than from a carrot, but you will probably get more benefit from the carrot because all of the ingredients act in synergy.

Having said this, you will probably want to use supplements because the amount of food you would have to eat to get all your supplements will probably not fit in your stomach. Though we must caution you against taking any supplements that have not been specifically prescribed for you by your health care professional.
