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.
experts hardly agree on anything. Here are a just a few of their
disagreements: some diets recommend salt,
Gerson Therapy, recommend a salt-free high potassium diet. Chicken (skinless)
can be found on some cancer diets, except at the
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.

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.
