Advice on Diet for Cancer Survivors

  • avoid all animal proteins, they trigger cancer cell activity (esp. the milk protein: casein)
  • organic diet
  • plant based diet
  • no microwaving, esp. in plastics!!!
  • fish oil (molecularly distilled)
  • mixed carotenoids (vs. beta-carotene) from food or supplements
  • medicinal mushrooms (the common white button and portabella mushrooms will not hurt but won't help)
  • low temp saunas for detoxification
