Do you need some reading for the weekend? Perhaps something else to mull over while you do laundry? Over the past few days I’ve gotten completely lost in cancertutor.com. I found it on a Google search after our friend Joy, who is battling breast cancer now, was talking the other night about how much diet affects/causes cancer.
The site’s purpose seems to claim many alternative cures to cancer, AIDS and other diseases for which I can make no claims. They seem legit but it’s a tough call to make a leap of faith on the kind of processes they are suggesting. Many are quick to label it quackery. On the other hand, I think all of us could agree there are natural solutions for our bodies’ health issues.
A small part of the site which I’ve been fascinated with though are the articles on how to Prevent Cancer and The Cancer Diet, which isn’t required for me but I think includes some interesting facts about how food and cancer are related. Most of the the stuff we know…lots of fruits, veggies (heavy on the green ones, including grass), nuts, beans and little to no meat are best. But there are many other nuggets (no McDonald’s pun intended) that I’ve found like how bad peanuts are for you. As I’ve heard before, sugar feeds cancer cells. Food like margarine, french fries and aspartame cause cancer.
I don’t know what to think of the site but I do know at minimum it was a good reminder to eat a healthy diet which I have STUNK at the last few months. Ugh! Why is it so hard? Why can’t blackberries taste like a banana split?? And many apologies for posting this on Super Bowl weekend! How about a side of guilt with those wings?
I’m very curious if anyone is familiar with any of these treatments or is pretty smart about a cancer prevention diet. Would love any information, stories and particularly any healthy recipes you have!
