When a dear friend of ours was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer several years ago, she was told by her cancer doctor (I am loosely quoting here), "I don't really care what you eat; just make sure you don't lose any weight. If it takes Twinkies to do that, it's fine." I am not making this up. When I suggested a couple of WHOLE FOOD NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS, she balked. Her doctor had told her that under no circumstances was she to take any sort of Nutritional Supplement --- it might "react" with the chemo. I have seen this same scenario play out dozens of times over the years --- including Friday, when a patient told me of a recently deceased spouse who spent the last five years of her life and 2 million dollars in misery, without any sort of nutritional guidance whatsoever. ZERO. That, my friends, is criminal.
It does not bother me that people treat cancer with conventional methods. I get it --- sometimes drastic situations call for drastic measures. What is troubling is that far too many people use oncologists who believe that treating cancer is SOLELY A MEDICAL ENDEAVOR (chemo / radiation). How much better could the results be for their patients if physicians understood some of the foundational principles of health and disease (HERE)? This is especially important in light of new information about using the same diet for cancer that is being used to treat neurological conditions, including epilepsy ---- the KETOGENIC DIET. But then again, once you realize that SUGAR FEEDS CANCER, it only makes sense.
