William Li: Can we eat to starve cancer? | Video on TED.com - 2 views

  •  
    Anti-angiogenic foodstuffs. Fascinating! Combine that with low glycemic index/load diet to minimise your chances for getting cancer (and many other diseases). More and more evidence indicate that we could probably cure cancer with proper diet and other lifestyle changes.

    A multicountry ecologic study of risk and risk reduction factors for prostate cancer mortality.
    Grant WB.
    Eur Urol. 2004 Mar;45(3):271-9.
    PMID: 15036670

    CONCLUSIONS: These results are consistent with insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), being an important risk factor for prostate cancer, with alcohol and calcium being less important risk factors, and with allium family vegetables, and, to a lesser extent, vitamin D being important risk reduction factors. These results should provide guidance for additional studies on dietary and environmental links to prostate cancer.

Exercise, Eating Plant-Based Diet Could Be Key To Cancer Prevention, Medical Experts Sa... - 0 views

  •  
    But, she said, the institute has identified three steps people could take to dramatically affect the chances of developing cancer:

    - Eat a mostly plant-based diet.
    - Maintain a healthy weight.
    - Exercise regularly.

    "The data is pretty clear that we can make a significant drop in the cancer rate with these three changes," Collins said. "We can prevent about one-third of cancers with these changes. And if you add tobacco prevention, which reduces about 30 percent of cancers, over half of today's cancers could be prevented."

Carbohydrate restriction may slow prostate tumor growth - eurekalert.org - 0 views

  •  
    DURHAM, N.C. -- Restricting carbohydrates, regardless of weight loss, appears to slow the growth of prostate tumors, according to an animal study being published this week by researchers in the Duke Prostate Center.

    "Previous work here and elsewhere has shown that a diet light in carbohydrates could slow tumor growth, but the animals in those studies also lost weight, and because we know that weight loss can restrict the amount of energy feeding tumors, we weren't able to tell just how big an impact the pure carbohydrate restriction was having, until now," said Stephen Freedland, M.D., a urologist in the Duke Prostate Center and lead investigator on this study.

    The researchers believe that insulin and insulin-like growth factor contribute to the growth and proliferation of prostate cancer, and that a diet devoid of carbohydrates lowers serum insulin levels in the bodies of the mice, thereby slowing tumor growth, Freedland said.

Watercress latest super food to fight cancer - Telegraph - 0 views

  •  
    Watercress was declared the latest super food yesterday for being packed with a higher than usual amount of nutrients found in vegetables.
    Research has shown that eating a packet of raw watercress a day, or a bowl full, for eight weeks increased the ability of cells to resist damage to their DNA, helping to protect against the cell changes that lead to cancer.

Sham vs. Wham: The Health Insider: Flax in Diet Found to Prevent or Reduce Tumors - 0 views

  •  
    There is new research out this morning from South Dakota State University which offers evidence that including flax in the diet may help prevent colorectal tumors or keep tumors from growing as quickly when they do form. Professor C. Dwivedi, head of SDSU's Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, directed the study.

    The study was conducted in mice that develop spontaneous intestinal tumors. This strain of mouse is often used as a model by cancer researchers due to this mutation.

  •  
    It is well known that eating green vegetables, beans, nuts, cereals and fruits prevents cancer, now it is found that beans and wheat bran contains an enzyme inhibitor Inositol // pentakisphosphate which is found to have anti-cancer effects by blocking the action of enzyme Phosphoinositide 3 kinase.

'Eat More Beans' to Stop Cancer - BBC NEWS | Health - 0 views

  •  
    Dr Marco Falasca and colleagues have discovered that a natural compound, called inositol pentakisphosphate, which is found in most legumes as well as in wheat bran and nuts, blocks the activity of the enzyme.

    When they tested its action in mice with ovarian and lung cancer they found it not only blocked tumour growth but also enhanced the effect of other cancer-killing drug

New data on link between cancer and nutrition discussed at European symposium - 0 views

  •  
    European experts in cancer and nutrition are meeting in Zurich, Switzerland late this month to discuss cutting-edge research in one of the most important and fiercely debated topics in cancer prevention: the link between diet and cancer.

    There is growing evidence that many cancers may be prevented through healthy lifestyle, including a nutritionally balanced diet. In addition, nutritional problems can also have a negative impact on cancer management and the lives of patients.

    Other presentations will include new data on topics such as:

    Childhood nutrition and later breast cancer risk
    The anti-tumour effects of green tea
    Malnutrition and patient distress in cancer
    Possible anti-tumour effects of soy extracts in mice
    Estrogens in beef and cancer risk

Cancer survivor credits healthful diet - denverpost.com - 0 views

  •  
    "Cancer lies dormant in all of us," he wrote in his new book, "Anticancer: A New Way of Life" (Viking, $25.95). "But our bodies are also equipped with a number of mechanisms that detect and keep such (defective) cells in check." Cancer rears its ugly head when things get out of balance, Servan-Schreiber said in an interview. And that can happen if the bad guys that promote the growth of cancer cells (tobacco, excessive alcohol, excessive sugar, hydrogenated fats, environmental pollutants) outnumber the good guys that support our natural defenses (cancer-fighting phytochemicals found in fruits, vegetables, herbs and teas; physical activity; and stress management techniques). But conventional treatment, while indispensable, focuses on a single target: destroying cancer cells. Doctors rarely address the other side: teaching patients how to fortify themselves using nutrition, exercise and stress-management techniques to create an inhospitable environment for cancer.

What You Eat May Fuel Cancer: Medical Experts Advise A Diet Rich In Omega-3s And Phyton... - 0 views

  •  
    If you want to reduce your risk for getting cancer, heart disease, diabetes and a host of other diseases, the message is clear - eat a nutrient-rich, low-fat, high fiber diet, with plenty of fruit and vegetables. So why is this wisdom forgotten when a person is diagnosed with cancer, and the standard advice becomes: "Eat whatever you want, whatever you can tolerate," even when this may include a diet high in fat and refined sugars. \n\nAccording to two of the country's leading authorities on cancer and nutrition, David Katz, MD and Keith Block, MD, the typical American high-fat, empty calorie diet can set the stage for an inflammatory response that actually fuels a cancer patient's disease, undermines treatment, and promotes malnutrition.
