Like the old saying, we ARE what we eat. We have to actually go back to the "caveman diet" in order to get healthy again. Our modern day diets are literally killing us. With the fast food generation and the processing of foods we by in stores, our bodies cannot take the artificial ingredients that it is forced fed. Cancer rates are rising and one of the biggest reasons is what we eat and drink.

Uncooked foods are the original nutrient source given to mankind. When cooking, curing, processing, refining, and adding chemicals to preserve and color food was introduced, the cancer rates and chronic degenerative illnesses rose accordingly.

Anyone with cancer must avoid nearly all animal meat (e.g. no cooked meat, fat, eggs, milk, etc.) and all refined sugars and starches. Don't worry—you won't starve not eating these foods.
There is plenty of protein, fat, and carbohydrates in predominately fresh raw fruits and vegetables with their juices, seeds, nuts, legumes, sprouts, and spices to help you feel well and heal.

Very compelling scientific evidence that meat and sugars contribute to cancer is the work of T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D. and his colleagues in The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, and Long-Term Health. In reference to breast, prostate, and colon cancer—which represents 40% of all newly diagnosed cancers—their research revealed that high dairy and meat consumption, low dietary fiber, and highly refined carbohydrate intake each significantly promoted cancer as mentioned earlier in this report.

5 Reasons to Eat Raw Foods

1. Raw foods supply their own digestive enzymes allowing your body greater capacity to focus on energy production, cell health, elimination of metabolic byproducts, and nerve and hormone function.

2. Micronutrients are in optimal proportions and quantities in uncooked whole foods. Micronutrients are vitamins, minerals, enzymes, anti-oxidants, and healthy (essential) oils. These
give your cells the ability to absorb nutrients, convert glucose into glycogen or energy, excrete toxins, regulate muscle action, and fire up the nervous system.

3. Raw foods maintain an optimal alkaline environment out in the tissues where the cancer is. Acid tissue is where cancer is most promoted.

4. Raw foods are abundant in plant fibers such as cellulose (lignin, pectin, gum), mucilage and bran. These serve to increase peristalsis in the gut, which increases the efficiency of digestion and lowers meat putrefication, oil spoilage, and carbohydrate fermentation. This also has the effect of
regulating glucose absorption, chelating minerals (putting them into the correct electrical state for absorption), and aids in vitamins B and K synthesis.

5. Raw foods also contain natural antimicrobials, plant hormones, and cancer-fighting phytochemicals. Some of the cancer-fighting plant chemicals were discussed earlier.

I have been taking a lot of supplements since I was diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer. Have always been taking vitamin C and multivitamins, but after much research, I have been taking vitamin D, E, A along with omega 3 fish oil, cat's claw, paw paw, New Chapter's Prostate 5LX, Zyflamend, L-Lysine, selenium, zinc, turmeric, Kyolic Garlic capsules, and others. From what I had read, these are substances that help fight cancer the natural way, instead of going through the barbaric orthodox medical procedures of surgery, radiation and chemo.

However, I have also learned that the best source of these ingredients is from eating fruits and vegetables. The problem is that most people don't have the source to get these healthy foods or, even if they do, be able to consume enough to get the proper amount of the ingredients into their systems.

With that said, there is a lot to be said about changing one's eating habits to include much more fruit and vegetables. While I have talked about the "Caveman Diet" there's another one, not quite so harsh, the Mediterranean Diet. I have heard a lot about that one and here's an article about it from the Natural News...

Mediterranean diet protects against stomach cancer

A study conducted by the Catalan Institute for Oncology in Barcelona has concluded that eating a "Mediterranean" diet significantly reduces the risk of developing stomach cancer. Published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the study focused specifically on gastric cancer which is the second most common cause of cancer death in the world.

Dr. Carlos Gonzalez and his colleagues evaluated a European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study of over 485,000 people from ten European countries. In the study, participants were evaluated based on how closely their diets aligned with the traditional Mediterranean diet. Such a diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and fish, as opposed to the Western diet which is rich in meat and dairy products.

What they found was that those whose diets most closely matched the traditional Mediterranean diet were 33 percent less likely to develop stomach cancer than those who fell on the opposite end of the diet spectrum. Developed on an 18-point scale, the study revealed that for each point gained on the Mediterranean diet spectrum, a person's risk of developing stomach cancer drops by 5 percent.

Since stomach cancer is extremely deadly, claiming the lives of over 75 percent of people who have it in just five years, researchers are aiming to pinpoint the ideal dietary composition for preventing its onset. According to them, the Mediterranean diet is an excellent start in helping to stave off stomach cancer.

Similar studies have found other benefits that can be derived from eating a Mediterranean diet, including reducing inflammation, preventing heart disease, and preventing obesity and diabetes.

A 2009 study published in Cancer Prevention Research found that a compound in broccoli called isothiocyanate sulforaphane (SF) works to prevent gastritis, ulcers, and ultimately stomach cancer. Conducted using broccoli sprouts, the study revealed that SF increases the activity of certain enzymes that protect the stomach from oxidative damage, effectively guarding it from developing disease.

Broccoli, as well as Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, and Chinese "bok choy" also contains indole-3-carbinols (I3Cs) which is another powerful anti-cancer molecule. Not only do these compounds prevent precancerous cells from turning into malignant tumors, they effectively detoxify the body and help to maintain alkalinity. I3Cs are also capable of killing existing cancer cells and stopping tumors from growing.

Other anti-cancer foods include garlic, onions, turmeric, ginger, pomegranates, citrus fruits, berries, and cacao, just to name a few.

Once again I say, we are what we eat. The Western diet is full of unhealthy fats, chemicals, dairy products and red meats. And that is even before we touch the fast and junk foods that we have become addicted on.

10 Foods to Prevent Cancer

Written by Amy Bell
Eat-Drink Better

Published on February 21st, 2009

Every year more than 500,000 people die from cancer in the United States alone.

Many researchers and cancer specialists believe that up to 60% of those deaths can be prevented if Americans adopt healthier lifestyles.

According to Rachael Stolzenberg-Solomon, a researcher at the National Cancer Institute,

“The easiest and least expensive way to reduce your risk for cancer is just by eating a healthy diet.”

Here is an overview of ten important cancer fighting foods to include in your diet on a regular basis:

1. Garlic – Garlic contains a number of compounds that can protect against cancer, especially that of the skin, colon, and lungs.

2. Dark Leafy Greens – Dark greens are rich sources of antioxidants called carotenoids. These scavenge dangerous free radicals from the body before they can promote cancer growth.

3. Grapes – Grapes (and red wine) contain the chemical resveratrol, which is a very potent antioxidant that can prevent cell damage before it begins.

4. Green Tea – The flavonoids in green tea have been shown to slow or prevent the development of several types of cancer including colon, liver, breast, and prostate.

5. Tomatoes – The compound lycopene, (which is most easily absorbed from cooked tomatoes) has been shown to prevent prostate cancer, as well as cancer of the breast, lung, and stomach.

6. Blueberries – Of all the berries, blueberries are the richest in cancer fighting compounds. They are beneficial in the prevention of all types of cancer.

7. Flaxseeds – Flax contains lignans, which can have an antioxidant effect and block or suppress cancerous changes. The omega-3 fatty acids can also help protect against colon cancer.

8. Mushrooms – Many mushrooms contain compounds that can help the body fight cancer and build the immune system as well.

9. Cruciferous Vegetables – Vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts contain strong antioxidants that may help decrease cancer risk.

10. Whole Grains – Whole grains contain a variety of anti-cancer compounds including antioxidants, fiber, and phytoestrogens. These can help decrease the risk of developing most types of cancer.

Remember, along with a healthy diet, a physically active lifestyle is important for cancer prevention as well.
