I havent checked this out but it is in many other natural health sites,  and most make sense...


Lots of Good Info

Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do
not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a
few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients tha t there are no
more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the
tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not
reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will
be destroyed and prevented from ! ! multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutrit ional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet
and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells
and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,
gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver,
kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and
damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often
reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and
radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much to! ! xic burden from chemotherapy and
radiation the immune system i s either compromised or destroyed,
hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and
become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause
cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells
by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one
important f ood supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like
NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame and it is
harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or
molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical
added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's
aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mu! ! cus, especially in the
gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off
milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are
being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-bas ed diet
is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather
than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth
hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people
with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains,
seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline
environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans.
Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed
and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and
enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for
building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most
vegetables inclu! ! ding bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or
3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees
F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.
Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting
properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to
avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water
is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines
become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining
from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein
walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy
the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,
Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the
body's own kill! ! er cells to destroy cancer cells Other supplements
like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell
death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted,
or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive
and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful
and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving
spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.
Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to
the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to
destroy cancer cells.



1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in f! ! reezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

J ohns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This
in formation is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center
as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't
freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases
dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness
Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain
this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are
for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the
microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to
foods that contain fat. He said th at the combination of fat, high
heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into
the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as
Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get
the same results, only with! ! out the dioxin. So such things as TV
dinners, inst ant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the
container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you
don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered
glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of
the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to
paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as
dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As
the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually
melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food
with a paper towel instead.
