The ideal diet for cancer therapy patients

What is proper diet for cancer patients and food for anti tumor therapy


The ideal diet for cancer therapy patients - Spices and herbs

Basically, the ideal diet is rich in in-season fresh fruit vegetables (from 10 to 15 portions a day for each); in particular, as regards vegetables, the following daily plan should be followed:

1) Bulbs: Allium sativum (garlic), Allium cepa (onion), etc…

2) Florets: Brassica oleracea italica (broccoli), Brassica oleracea botrytis (cauliflower, etc..)

3) Vegetable fruits: Solanum lycopersicum (tomato [only small ones]), Cucurbita pepo (zucchini/courgettes, etc…) …[NOT pumpkin (sugar beets )].

4) Vegetable leaves: Spinacia oleracea (spinach), Lactuca sativa (lettuce), etc…)

5) Vegetable roots: (Daucus carota (carrot), Pastinaca sativa (parsnip), etc…[NOT Beta vulgaris (sugar beets )].

6) cereals (SEE later) [NOT Zea mays (sweet corn, maize) it’s a GMO risk; NOT Oryza sativa (rice) for GMO risk;

7) Tubers: Solanum tuberosum (potatoes), Brassica rapa (turnip), etc…) [NOT Solanum tuberosum for GMO risk ].

8) Vegetable stems: Asparagus officinalis (asparagus), Apium graveolens (celery), etc… [Do NOT eat raw Asparagus officinalis and/or Apium graveolens].

Food combinations (cereals + legumes) for anticancer diet

It is also important not to eat pasta (Triticum durum, vulgare, spelta) or Sweetcorn (Zea mays), or rice (Oryza sativa), or bread together with pulses, because doing so there is an integration of the 9 essential amino-acids (the 8 contained in the cereals + the 8 contained in the pulses), with a nutritional effect similar to the one obtained by eating meat (SEE chapter 1.b: Proteins) ALL the essential amino acids are: Valine, Isoleucin, Leucin, Lysine, Methionine, Histidine, Tryptophane, Phenylalanine, Treonine.

LEGUMES contain a lot of energy, and, potentially, a lot of proteins. They contain a lot of proteins only together with food containing the missing amino acid (usually Methionine).

Note: Hippophae rhamnoides (Olivello spinoso) is rich of Lysine, as LEGUMES. Amaranthus hypochondriacus (amaranth) is rich of Lysine, as LEGUMES Secale cereale (rye, used in Gerson-Therapy) is rich of Lysine, as LEGUMES

The dangers of GM food and diet for cancer therapy

Thus, those that are dangerous for health are only GM legumes, as they have ALL nine essential amino acids, as we already know for alfalfa (745,967), for GM soya, GM peas, (1011, 2006), for GM clover (1066), and GM beans. People must know what happens if they use these as food, because the result is a nutrition full of proteins, and not only of energy. This is particularly important for people who have chronic-degenerative diseases (cancer, diabetes, arthrosis, osteoporosis, cardio-vascular diseases, obesity, etc). The hidden protein intake can nullify nutritional therapies based on avoiding proteins (they are based on totally eliminating MILK, MEAT, EGGS, FISH and YEATS from the diet).

The problem is similar also for GM CEREALS, that were recently introduced in our nutrition. They contain the missing amino acid, usually Lysine. At the moment, there are three GM cereals being produced and sold in the United States and in the rest of the world: SWEETCORN, RICE and WHEAT.

Although many patients are very careful about food labels, at the moment we cannot exclude the following facts, based on failed therapy in some cases where the diet was correct:

1) Rice sold in Europe presumably contains Lysine in good quantities, as opposed to organic rice. It also seems that some rice brands sold in Europe also contain the pesticide toxin Bacillus thuringiensis (SEE below).

2) Some brands of GM sweetcorn have already been officially introduced in Europe, but we don’t know whether they were enriched with all essential amino acids or not, nor how they were modified. It seems that they were modified introducing Bacillus thuringiensis, a pesticide toxic substance.

3) At least one fifth of Italian PASTA is made with wheat coming from abroad, usually from America (“Panorama” magazine, 2004-2005): no-one can exclude that American flower contains ALL 9 ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS. It would be interesting to study the pasta imported from America to check the presence of:

a) ALL 9 ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS, by comparison with certified organic wheat (organic wheat contains little or no Lysine).

b) Transgenic toxins (Bacillus thuringiensis).

c) Transgenic viruses (SEE chap. 8), that are often used to make GM vegetables.

The problem of WHEAT: the author expresses particular concern about wheat (Triticum durum), from which in Italy today we get both pasta and bread: patients suffering from cancer need a lot of energy (at least 2,000 kcal/per day) provided that it comes from food with no Vitamin B 12 and without ALL 9 Essential Amino Acids. That is NO animal product: Pasta, together with rice, is (or was) the most suitable food for this. They have already started growing new varieties of wheat in the USA, of the GM variety, the characteristics are not yet known. However it is feared that they may have been enriched with Lysine as in American potatoes, American maize, and American rice.

For this reason, the author expresses serious doubts on the introduction of cereals, pulses and other genetically modified vegetables (often not even declared as such) onto the market that could contain ALL the ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS (9), thus effectively rendering Cancer no longer curable as described in the present study.

For example, it has been possible to trace from bibliographical data that the potato (previously considered a cure for tumors), is today absolutely counter-indicated, because the synthesis gene of Lysine has been inserted into it (689). This is an essential amino acid that the potato did not have, and a gene obtained from Amaranthus hypocondriacus (amaranth, tumbleweed) which is well known to be rich in this essential amino acid. The very same Lysine (685) has been introduced into a local variety of potato in Israel, since 1992. In 1997, in the United States, human Casein was introduced into a North American variety of potato, thus making it complete with all the essential amino acids (687).

In 1998 Bacillus thuringiensis was transferred to potatoes by means of GMO technology, and these were fed to mice (1589) : the intestinal cells of these mice showed degeneration phenomena and lesions in the microvillus on the surface of the intestinal space; hyperplasia was present in half of the cells and of several nuclei; the thin basal plate of the intestine was damaged in various places; several damaged microvilli appeared with fragments containing endoplasmic reticulum; the Paneth cells had a high degree of activation and contained a high number of secretory granules. [note from the author of this site: the resulting picture reminded one, at least to some extent, of ileitis from rays, or “Baserga syndrome”, well known in the Marshall islands in 1954, where many civilians were exposed to food contaminated by radionuclides of alpha and beta emissions, coming from the fallout of nuclear explosions].

The genetic threat from this experimentation is very little debated with regard to its real problem (689).

If the patient manages not to destroy all of his/her own reserves of proteins in muscles, maintaining an energetic physical program, with long walks and exercise suitable to maintain good muscle tone throughout the patient’s whole active muscular structure, then the organism will begin to look for protein reserves which are not essential, such as fatty tissue and above all, the neo plastic tissues themselves.

But particular attention must also be paid to other transgenic variants (GM) of plants used for food, which, according to the author, can no longer be used in a cure against cancer, because such plants usually come from abroad and furthermore have been prepared in laboratories in American, Canadian or Japanese industries and are therefore suspected of being carriers of transgenic viruses (with a risk of transgenic diseases); of lacking the important vitamins needed to fight tumors and perhaps of being carriers of substances which inhibit apoptosis in diseased cells (SEE below).

It is because of this that the author expresses serious concern about the introduction on the market of cereals, pulses and other genetically modified vegetables (often NOT declared) which could contain ALL the ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS (Valine, Isoleucin, Leucin, Lysine, Methionine, Histidine, Tryptophane, Phenylalanine, Treonine) thus effectively rendering cancer no longer curable using the treatment described in this work, a work which in its ideals links up to the old therapy of Dr. Gerson, extending it to many other curative plants such as Aloe arborescens, for example.

The author of this study thus maintains that if GMO are liberalized, there will be the most serious environmental disaster ever seen, because there will no longer be any possibility of curing cancer with Gerson’s diet, or with other food programs as described in this study, which alone were able to cure between 70% and 90% of patients, provided that there was no Chemo-Therapy (749,750,969).

The importance of oils in diet for cancer therapy

Oils must be produced by cold pressing olives, and must not be refined.

Large use of Italian extra virgin olive oil, and oil of flax seeds (Linum usitatissimum). The latter must never be used for frying, but must be used only raw. Ideally, this is true also for olive oil, because of the vitamins it contains. True extra virgin olive oil is hard to find, because it is often adulterated. For example, it is notorious that, at temperatures below zero degrees Celsius, only true extra virgin olive oil completely freezes, while the adulterated one containing remains usually freezes in little inhomogeneous spheres. Despite this, it is still being sold as “extra virgin oil”.

Cold pressed flax seed oil is very important because of vitamin F, which is not present in extra virgin olive oil. The latter contains vitamin E, which is not present in cold pressed flax seed oil.

To understand the importance of these two oils, further on you can find a short medical explanation about the vital importance of these two vitamins.

Spices, grass used in cooking but also in medicine

The following are useful spices (some of them carry out a specific anti-neoplastic function on an immuno-stimulating and/or apoptotic basis):

The Pulses for anticancer diet

Pulses are allowed:

Medicago sativa (alfalfa, lucerne), Glycine maxima (soya), Cicer arietinum (chick peas), Phaseolus vulgaris (beans), Vicia faba (broad beans), Lens esculenta (lentils), Pisum sativum (peas), Fagopyrum esculentum (buckwheat or black wheat), Ceratonia siliqua (carob), Colutea arborescens (Erba vescicaria), Trigonella foenum graecum (fenugreek), Galega officinalis (galega), Lotus corniculatus (five-finger),
Glycirrhiza glabra (sweet root), Lupinus albus (lupin), Melilotus officinalis (yellow melilot), Trifolium pratense, rubeus (clover), Anthyllis alpestris or vulneraria (kidney-vetch, lady’s-finger).

GM pulses are dangerous (ALL 9 ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS :Valin, Isoleucin, Leucin, Lysin, Methionin, Arginin, Tryphtophan, Phenylalanine, Treonine Hystidine)

NOT use of Glycine maxima (it’s GM);

NOT use of Pisum sativum (GMO risk,1011);

NOT use of Medicago sativa (GMO risk);

NOT use of Phaseolus vulgaris (GMO risk)].

Dried fruit in diet for cancer therapy

Dried fruit is forbidden to cancer patients because it contains a lot of ESSENTIAL AMINOACIDS

Corylus avellana (hazelnuts), Olea europaea (olives); note: particularly rich in DHEA, useful against aging, Pinus pinea (pine nuts), Castanea sativa (sweet chestnuts), Juglans regia (walnuts), Arachis hypogaea (peanuts), Pistacia vera (pistachios); Prunus amygdalus (almonds);

Note: be careful with seeds of bitter almonds (Prunus amygdalus), because they contain a lot of vitamin B17. This makes 2-3 bitter seeds lethal for a child, and 12-15 lethal for an adult weighing,70 kg. On the other side, they are extremely effective on cancer (SEE chapter 7).
