I received chemotherapy and went into remission, but the cancer came back and I endured two surgeries and 13 months of chemotherapy. I asked my oncologist if I ought to change my diet to avoid another recurrence. His answer was perfectly stereotypical: "Eat what you like. It won't make much difference."He was wrong.The extensive research published in the last decade alone proves that what you eat can have a profound effect on your protection against cancer. But my doctor's answer was hardly surprising. It's a little-known fact that nutrition is barely taught in med schools, where the solution to most problems is a drug. And doctors don't trust patients to make lifestyle changes. I recall a conversation with a fellow physician at a conference after I spoke on the importance of a healthy diet in fighting disease. "You may be right, David, but people don't want to change," he said. "They just want to take a pill and forget about it." I don't know whether he's right, but after all the study I've done, I know it isn't true for me.I spent months researching the healing powers of food before I fully grasped my own natural cancer-fighting potential. I met with a variety of researchers, scoured medical databases, and combed scientific publications. I traveled all over the world and consulted experts from nearly every continent.In my quest, I discovered that the list of anticancer foods is actually quite long. Some foods block natural bodily processes such as inflammation that fuels cancer growth. Others force cancer cells to die through a process that specialists call apoptosis. Still other foods assist the body in detoxifying cancer-causing toxins or protecting against free radicals. But most of them attack the disease on a variety of fronts. And they do it every day, three times a day, without provoking any side effects. To avoid the disease, it's essential to take advantage of this natural protection, and nurture it.I've learned that the anticancer diet is the exact opposite of the typical American meal: mostly colorful vegetables and legumes, plus unsaturated fats (olive, canola, or flaxseed oils), garlic, herbs, and spices. Meat and eggs are optional. Through extensive research, I devised a list of the most promising cancer fighters, along with recommendations on how to make the most of their potential. Include at least one, and preferably two, at every meal, to maximize your protection.To date, there is no alternative approach that can cure cancer, and I believe that the best of conventional medicine

I have read some articles that say both beer and wine are good for us but not together of course. :lol: Many articles say two drinks a day of either are good for the body but I personally do not think that any of these studies are to be fully trusted and should just be used as a guide to try to improve our lives, while doing the things that we feel are best to do for ourselves. :551: What the heck would be good about living a little longer, if we did not actually live life to the fullest while we were alive. I say, live and enjoy life and try to eat healthy if you can, but IMO it sure does not pay to stop doing those things that you really enjoy just to gain a few more months or years of an unhappy life. :as-if: Heck, the other day I read about a woman who was over 100 years old and she claimed that she lived that long because she was a virgin, :( heck she may have lived that long anyway and she missed some of the best part of life IMHO. :551: :welcome: :lol:

Dang. I wish I hadn't read this. Now I have to start drinking wine. Man, I'm not gonna have time for anything, drinking wine, bourbon and beer... I mean, I know all are good for me, so I make it a point to drink as much as possible, of each. :lol:

Actually I have my own theory on drinking. I think it is more about the weight of the glass or bottle and how often you have to life it to your mouth. SugarwareZ-007.gif So therefore, a giant iced mug of beer :lol: or a grande bottle of beer, lifted to the mouth often would be the best and shot glasses would be the worst. SugarwareZ-004.gif So drink large quantities, lift them often to you lips and keep your glasses full, and the exercise is good for your heart. 2245_safe.gif Of course I would never suggest that anyone modify their own drinking methods because my theory might have a few flaws in it. :as-if: :lol: :( :welcome:
