Mintaka - I am so glad that you are doing so well. I do not have cancer but my 15 year old granddaughter was recently diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, an aggressive bone cancer. She is undergoing a brutal chemo regime, 5 days of in hospital chemo every 3 weeks for a year. Since I am her grandmother not her parent (she is my son's daughter) I don't get any say in her treatment. I would not suggest to her parents that she doesn't need chemo but I wish I could suggest to them that a low carb diet could be helpful. I have mentioned it but I have to tread very lightly. I wish I could do more. It's frustrating, to say the least.

Oh, Jean that is horrid news. I have never heard of it. Only 15. She has youth and vigor on her side. Her parents are probably beside themselves.

Another great talk on You Tube by Dr. Colin Champ at The IHMC...his second on Cancer and Nutrition. This one is titled:
Cancer Prevention Through Diet - Tangible Takeaways

He starts by reviewing many of studies that drive common dietary cancer advice , e.g. High dietary fat increases breast cancer risk, and how they were wrong. Like the saturated fat studies and Taubes criticism of those epidemiological studies in light of the new AHA advisory, he shows where they went wrong. Trans fats and Omega -6 fats, especially when heated, are a problem; the saturated fats, can be a healthy part of an anti-cancer diet. The end of his talk are the "Tangible Takeways"...what should you eat? What does he eat? And not eat (fasting is a key component in the cancer diet world) For the possibility of cancer prevention?

I'm a big fan of Dr Champ. His first lecture at IHMC, Augmenting Cancer Therapy with Diet: Have We Found a Sweet Spot? and his recent STEM-talk interview are also good. Episode 18, The right Nutrition and Exercise can help treat cancer.
