Topic: Does the way we eat raise the chance of getting cancer?
Some time ago I introduced myself on this board and told about my husband Peter. Diagnosed in May 2007, surgery broken off and a life prediction of 2-3 months.
Since now, July 2008, he is still doing great (though there are signs the cancer is spreading to the lungs now), we have become greedy and opt for at least another year of quality life.
In this respect, Peter started to read about cancer and he came across a very interesting book by Dr. David Servan-Schreiber. The title is "Anticancer". This dr. in psychiatry had brain tumors twice, and after the second time he started investigating everything he could lay his hands on regarding cancer. He comes to very interesting conclusions regarding our Western eating pattern and the chance of getting cancer.
Peter (who is a chemist by profession) is finding a lot in this book that makes it worthwhile for him (for us) to try and turn around the way we were eating. I have no idea yet, whether it brings us anything. But at least it is a very healthy way of eating and it can at least make his body stronger to fight longer.
I wanted to tell this to you all. It doesnot cost anything and we may win time with it. I'll keep you informed.
Love and strength to all of you,
