Vegans, who cut out all kinds of animal products including dairy products are distinct from vegetarians , who just avoid meat and fish. The more I research, the more I am persuaded that a vegan diet may be the way to beat cancer.
Cancer of the Author of “Your Life in Your Hands”
The cancer of Jane Plant, the author of “Your Life in Your Hands” who was cured by eliminating all dairy products from her diet was not HER2+, which is my type, but Estrogen +.
Also, I found a comment from a patient who tried the same non-dairy diet for 6 months, but could not stop her cancer progressing on the forum page of HER2Support.org. However, it was unknown if she was only on a non-dairy diet, or a vegan, as well as what type her cancer was.
Doctors who recommend Vegan Diet
On the other hand, I noticed that there were quite a few specialists who recommended the vegan diet to prevent not only cancer but also diabetes , heart disease, or hypertension.
A report from Boston Tufts University this April compared DNA methylation, which is “an important regulator of gene transcription”, between high consumers of vegetable and fruits and ordinary western style food consumers, and it concluded that the high consumers of vegetable and fruits may protect their DNA from abnormal disruptions that are observed in cancer.
A Boy with Brain Cancer Is On a Vegan Diet
News on October 14th told a story of a three year old boy whose brain cancer came back after numerous aggressive treatments. He will be on vegan diet to prevent his cancer growing and if the diet can not stop the cancer, he will receive radiation therapy, but his chance to survive will be only 30% and he may become blind, according to the article. If the vegan diet works, it would save the boy’s life and a great hope for many.
Former President Clinton On Vegan Diet
Mr. Clinton, who had a heart attack and had a major surgery several years ago, is now on vegan diet recommended by his doctor. He, who lost a lot of weight , said he was doing well, in his interview.
Vegan Diet Lacks Vitamin B12
Vegan diet is extremely strict because it excludes even honey, bread if it is made of eggs or milk, or stock from chicken, fish, etc. Therefore this diet doesn’t provide vitamin B12, which is essential for blood cells, the immune system, and DNA. You have to have animal products for Vitamin B12 unless you supplement somehow.
Well, maybe I can’t go that far unless my life is really at stake, but I was pretty much convinced that making planted food as the main food, and cutting out animal food is crucial to fight against cancer and I’m going to try it as much as possible.
