What Makes Cancer Grow

Every person has cancer cells in their 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 that 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 detectable size.

When the person’s immune system is strong, the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.     When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing the diet to plant based will strengthen the immune system.

Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract, etc., and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidney, heart and lungs, and so on.  Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars, and damages healthy cells, tissues, and organs.    Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However, prolonged use of chemo and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemo and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications. 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 different sites.  

 Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.  Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from 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. Some whole food supplements build up the immune system to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other synthetic supplements add additional acidity to the body. Vitamin E is known to cause apoptosis, or cell death of healthy cells.

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


Stop Cancer Cells From Growing:

An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding them with the foods they need to multiply.

Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and are harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey, Stevia, or Agave nectar, but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. A better alternative is sea salt or Fort Braggs Amino Acids.

Milk causes the body to produce mucus and makes us acidic, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus and acid. By cutting off milk, and substituting with unsweetened rice or almond milk cancer cells are being starved. Dr. Brian Clement says the number one cause of cancer is "Dairy". Read "The China Study" to further understand.

Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, to people with or without cancer.

Avoid any kind of coffee and caffeinated tea that have caffeine and high acidity. Green tea is a better alternative if you need caffeine or try alkalizing Teeccino. Water: best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

A diet made of fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a fruit help put the body into an alkaline environment. 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 including 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).


"There is not a single population in the world with a high meat intake, that does not have a high rate of colon cancer" (“Diet For a New America” by John Robbins pg 253)
