Cancers thrive in a polluted internal environment, and if you remove that environment you will prevent it from proliferating. Here are 5 foods and drinks you should absolutely avoid if you are fighting cancer:
Sugar is a cancer-feeder. Cutting out sugar removes an important food supply to cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame which is equally harmful. Try modest amounts of Manuka honey or molasses instead. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Natural sea salt is a better alternative. Try Jersey Sea Salt.
Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus so substitute it with unsweetened soya or almond milk and starve the cancer cells.
Acid: Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat deep-water fish and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Commercially reared meat also contains antibiotics, growth hormone and parasites, which are all harmful to cancer sufferers.
Alkaline: A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and certain fruit helps create an internal alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance the growth of healthy cells. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
Caffeine: Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which are high in caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
A Brief Word About Selenium: It is estimated that over 80% of us are deficient in this cancer-fighting mineral. Research has demonstrated dramatic reductions in many cancers including breast, prostate, lung and colon when supplemental selenium is taken. Chemical forms (selenomethionine and sodium selenite) do not perform at the same level as foodstate Selenium
