The Huffington Post Australia talked to Cancer Council NSW spokesperson and nutrition program manager, Clare Hughes.
“It’s important to understand that when a food is classified as a carcinogen, this is an indication of how strong the evidence is of the link between consumption and cancer,” “It is not an indication of how much cancer that food causes or how much of that food would give you cancer.”
Wow! before reading this, I warn you…you are probably eating a lot of this foods!
Cancerous cells feed on:
Sugar is a cancer-feeder. by eliminating the sugar it cuts off one important food supply for cancer. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be honey, but a small amount. Table salt contains chemicals that make it white. A better alternative is sea salt.
Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk, cancer cells begin to die of hunger.
Cancer cells thrive in acidic environments. A meat-based diet is high in acid, it is best to eat fish and some chicken to eat beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially in people with cancer.
A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. The remaining 20% can be from cooked food including beans. The fresh vegetable juice (carrot juice obtained with a pump, strengthens the immune system) 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 and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius.
Avoid coffee, tea and chocolate, which have high caffeine. The green tee (green tea) is an excellent alternative and has properties that fight against cancer. Purified water or outlet filter, the tap water contains high levels of toxic metal. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
The protein in meat is difficult to digest and requires many digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
The walls of the cancer cells are covered with tough protein. Eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body to produce cells that kill cancer cells. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Essiac, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs, etc..).
Be careful of what you eat and avoid major complications.
