Cancer Diet: Eat to Defeat the Disease

The cancer diet is as vital to curing and preventing further spreading of cancer cells as the treatment itself.

A correct diet prevents the progress made by your cancer treatments from being undone. Cancer cells need sustenance like any other; the wrong kind of foods will strengthen them and encourage their survival, or their return once you are in remission.

Ways to Starve Out Cancer Cells

  1. Avoid foods that feed the cancerous cells, such as sugar, flour, meat, and grains
  2. Eat plenty of immune boosting foods to provide non-cancerous cells the nutrients they need
  3. Use the cancer diet to boost the immune system and kill off cancer cells
  4. Treat the cancer with just the cancer diet
Choosing the right cancer diet can help you fight the illness

It is a fact that many people diagnosed with cancer have successfully helped themselves to fight off the disease with the cancer diet. However, each person is different.

Most cancer patients do need extensive medical treatments, like chemotherapy and radiation, on top of a good cancer diet.

Exercise is also vital. No matter how bad you feel during treatment, exercise improves your body's chances against cancer.

Understanding The Basics

Except for extremely weak patients that need proteins provided by meat, meat is strictly forbidden for cancer patients.

There are several reasons for this.

  • Pancreatic enzymes. Pancreatic enzymes are pre-programmed to first digest meat and then remove the protein layer covering cancer cells, making them “visible” to the immune system which then kills them off. If the process was reversed and the layer was removed first, then meat might be a good cancer fighter.
  • Animal proteins are believed to feed cancer cells. This has not been verified, however it is a fact that proteins from meat are consistent contributing factors to the development of cancer. When cooked, meat creates 'mutagens' which are carcinogens. See this article for more info.
  • Acidic foods. Meats have a high acidity level – another reason why meat is forbidden. Sugar, flour, pop (even diet pop) and many other foods literally feed cancerous cells because of high acidity levels.

Juices Are Easier to Absorb

Fruit and vegetables form an important part of your cancer diet

Juiced fruits and vegetables are more digestible, which means more of the actual nutrients can be absorbed by the body. Once a fruit or vegetable is juiced, you can consume much more.

It takes many fruits to make a glass of juice, which is easy to drink up in a few minutes. Eating four or five raw fruits in a few minutes is much more difficult.

The thing to keep in mind is that many cancer fighting fruits contain the most nutrients in the skin and seeds.

When juicing fruits such as purple gapes, the seeds and skin may not liquify in a blender, so you may be tempted to throw them out.

This is where the majority of nutrients lie. Instead of throwing them out, turn them into a mush with a food processor or hand grinder.

Vegetable Cocktail Recipe for the Cancer Diet

  • 1 to 2 quarts of carrot juice
  • 2 red beets including the beet tops
  • cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower
  • turmeric and cayenne pepper may also be added

Special note: Red beets can turn urine red, so if you consume a large amount of beet juice, don't be alarmed when your urine turns red.

Fruit Cocktail

Unlike carrot juice, which is limited to 1-2 quarts per day, fruit juice doesn't have any limits.

The fruits you should mainly use include purple grapes with seeds and skins, raspberries (red and black), strawberries, raw pineapples, blueberries, and any other fruit dark blue or purple in color.

The diet allows a limited amount of super-fruit juices, such as goli, mangosteen, wolfberry and noni. But no more than 5 or 6 ounces per day, because they release toxins in the body and put a great burden on the liver.

Glucose is another issue to be aware of. Carrots are high in glucose, which is eagerly consumed by cancer cells. When the glucose is absorbed, so are the cancer-killing nutrients, which means that the cancer cell is being weakened.

Mixing non-fruit and vegetable foods high in glucose with your vegetable or fruit cocktails provides the cancer cell with too many nutrients, and defeats your cancer-fighting efforts. In other words, avoid any food that is not a known cancer killer.

Cooking Kills Enzymes

Cooking kills 100 percent of the enzymes found in a food. This is good for meat products, but the cancer diet depends on fruit and vegetable enzymes to kill the cancer cells. Certain foods should be consumed raw on the cancer diet.

Of course, there are exceptions to the rule. For example, broccoli needs to be steamed in order to release vital nutrients, and some vegetables, such as green beans and peas, should be cooked for safety reasons.
