06/23/2008: TAN KOON PENG from Singapore: "FOOD CANCER PATIENTS MUST AVOID :
All bottled, canned, frozen, preserved, refined, salted, smoked and sulphured foods
Bicarbonate of soda in food, toothpaste and mouthwashes
Avocado - too much fatty acids
Basic, oregano (aromatic oils can cause difficult reactions)
Berries (except red, black and whole currants)
Biscuits, cake, chocolate, cocoa
Coffee (any sort), tea (Coffee is highly acidic) (caffeine are very bad for liver and kidneys)
Fats and oils (except flaxseed)
Nuts (too much fatty acids/fats)
Peas (sulpured), lentils, beans, seeds (phytic acid/enzyme inhibitors)
Soft drinks of any kind, fizzy and fruit juices (preserved)
Soya (fat content and phytic acid)
Sugar (including sweets)
instant noodle, processed food, junk food, chips, fried foods, dairy products, all preservative,c olouring,a ddivites, flavour enhancers, milk, chicken, meat of any kinds, sea food,esp.crab, beef, ginseng, refined sugar, caffine, white flour and msg! Note: meat, salt, fats, sugar feed cancer, white flour change to sugar, caffeine are very bad for liver and kidneys!
Cancer patients must avoid sodium (salt) of any kind because too much sodium is also one of the cause of cancer!what is needed in this case is to consume lots of fruits and vegetables high in potassium as cancer cells revert back to normal cells in high potassium diet!
The above info are extracted from book by Dr Chiu Nan Lai who is a scientist in the study of cancer.
Raw foods and a diet with as many raw fruits and veggies as possible is best for Cancer patient!
- NO SUGAR
- NO DAIRY
- NO ANIMALS
- NO ANIMAL PRODUCTS
- NO PASTA
- NO PROCESSED CARBS
- NO ICE CREAM
06/24/2008: Debbie from South Bend, IN replies: "I'm sorry but this post is very misleading. If you want good information on cancer prevention visit Dr. Cannell's http://www.vitamindcouncil.org
More than 65% of the Earth's population is Vitamin D deficient. Most cancers can be prevented simply by having enough vitamin D in our systems. Vit D is not a vitamin, it is a pro-hormone and every single cell in your body has a vitamin D receptor. The new research on Vitamin D is pretty much earth shaking but the "corporate media" are not covering these breakthroughs. Please, please, please get your D levels checked. Make sure you get the correct test, and then try to get some sun and take supplements. It will save your life. It has changed mine so dramatically I can't begin to tell you how much. Deb From Indiana."
05/20/2009: Mabel from Kampala, Uganda replies: "Dear TAN KOON PENG, i find your list of foods for cancer patients contradicting. Cucumber and avocado is included in both lists (foods to avoid and foods suitable..) which is which?"
06/23/2008: Tan Kong Peng from Singapore: "FOOD SUITABLE FOR CANCER PATIENTS :
The Very Best Foods ( Juiced or raw vegetables would provide the best nutrient value.)
Vegetables: Avocado, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, chicory, chives, collard greens, cucumbers, dandelion, endive, fennel, garlic, kale, leeks, lettuce, sea lettuce, mustard greens, nettles, okra, onions, parsley, parsnips, radishes, spinach, squash, tomatoes, turnips, and watercress.
Fruits: Apples, apricots, avocado, bananas, berries, cantaloupe, cherries, cranberries, currants, dates, figs, grapefruit, grapes (seeded), lemons, limes, mangos, melons, nectarines, olives, oranges, papayas, peaches, pears, persimmons, pineapples, plums, pomegranate, and quinces.
Seeds and Nuts: Almonds, beechnuts, black walnuts, butternuts, coconuts, english walnuts, filberts, pecans, pignolias (pine nuts), and pumpkin seeds.It is BEST to take nothing into the body that has been cooked or processed:
Avoid sugar, beer, sodas, ice cream, fried foods, table salt ( sea salt - okay ). The diet should focus on fruit ( fresh pineapples ), vegetables and high pH spring or mineral water. Drink plenty of room temperature spring or mineral water.
To be safe, we recommend less fruit, more vegetables, and no refined sugars in the diet of cancer patients. To restore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid forming foods. A list of Acid / Alkaline Forming Foods.
NOTE: organic pineapple and papaya contain a pancreatic enzyme that helps breaks down the protein wall around a cancer cell."
06/23/2008: Tan Koon Peng from Singapore: "Fruits and vegetables. -- l highly recommand (wheat grass, flax seeds, noni juice, lemons, water melon, grape including seeds, barley green, tapioca, sweet potato, barley, carrots, brown rice)
RAISIN, chamomile, peppermint tea, psyllium husk powder, essiac tea, ling zhi, califlower, miso, green tea, sea weeds, coarse rice, green pepper, goat milk, blackthorn, maize, sorghum, honey dew, kiwi, strawberry, green pepper, red cabbage, romaine, swiss chard, leafy vegetables, parsley and roots, whole grains, tempeh, chlorella, bee pollen, aloe vera, mushroom, beans and tofu!
The above work best when taken juice if not raw for best results because cooking destroy the nutrients! NOTE: Raw organic pineapple and papaya contain a pancreatic enzyme that help break down the protein wall around a cancer cell!
Unprocessed nuts (walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts -- no peanuts) are all good. Most seeds are also good. An occasional baked potato (no butter or other "dressing") is a welcome break. You would search out "gluten-free" products (English muffins, flaxseed crackers, etc.) at the health food store. Just be sure they don't have additives with MSG or other harmful chemicals. Quinoa and other gluten-free bulk cereals are fine. Just be careful what you add. Almond milk is good, but check the carton for any harmful additives.
- Take pokeweed, chaparral, red clover, and yellow dock to purify the blood and break up tumors or growths.
- Apply horseradish and plantain or pokeweed, lobelia, and mullein tea to reduce swelling.
- kombucha tea and essiac is very useful for Cancer. Do a google search to learn more. Kombucha is very good for health too!
- Coffee enemas is very useful for Cancer
- Take as much vitamin C as your stomach can support.Drink as much Fruits and vegetables juice as you can.
- Maintain blood clean with the Beck electric pulser. Search the web to learn more
- Stimulate liver and kidneys to help your body to get rid of dead parasites.
- Make dark field microscopic examinations of your blood before and after treatment to see the effectiveness.
- Nistatin, Black salve, garlic, Melatonin and Metronidazol are effective for cancer too
- Drink tansy tea to minimize symptoms of Cancer and to aid the healing process.
- Watermelon seeds are known to cure colon cancer and many other things like cleansing kidney! Apricot and peach pits are said to be bad by the medical companies but they have one of the most powerful stuff to kill the cancer cells!
Electronic Ray Tube Device
06/27/2008: Jeff from Lynnwood, WA: "Under the auspices of The University of Southern California, a Special Medical Research Committee led by Dr. Milbank Johnson did a 3-month study to test the effectiveness of an electronic ray tube device for cancer. They treated 16 patients, which were all pronounced cured after 91 days according to the documented results. "The Rise and Fall of a Scientific Genius" and "The Cancer Cure That Worked" both tell the story. A summary is at http://computerizedraytube.com/history.html. Jeff."
02/25/2010: Michael from Cuenca, Ecuador: "Between 1900 and 1930 in the USA electrotherapy was the most popular form of medical treatment by doctors and was taught in most medical schools. Then the AMA and FDA came into existence with their focus on pharmaceutical drugs to gain much money and take away the power to heal from the hands of the common man. (Back then people could buy electromedicine devices from the Sears catalog.) They had the medical schools stop teaching electromedicine by threatening to take away their AMA-accredited status. And the FDA made it illegal to sell electrical devices for the purpose of treating disease unless they approved them (ha! fat chance!). So then, little by little, electromedicine was forgotten in this country. See the electromedicine museum at http://www.electrotherapymuseum.com/. But in 1992 researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine discovered that a small amount of electrical current disabled 98% of HIV-1 from being able to infect human blood cells. They used this research as the basis of a couple of medical patents, but no company ever purchased the right to use that technology to have a non-drug approach to treating AIDS. (Maybe because they were scared to counter the mob-like drug companies.) When Bob Beck, a physicist and alternative health researcher, found out about these patents he devised a simpler method of applying electricity from batteries to the blood to affect the microbes therein. Then he tested his blood electrification device against microbe-caused diseases and was generally successful. Then he started lecturing around the country and a few companies started making and selling his devices. I joined that elite group in 1997 after using those devices to rid myself of a 16 year infection of Epstein Barr Virus that caused Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome. My first customer success stories were from 2 people who had cancer. This is because there are cancer-causing viruses that these devices help eliminate. Lately I've discovered how to make tumor electrification devices based on info from scientific studies, the Chinese, and the Germans. I've supplied them to a local cancer doctor here who has used them with great success. Just look up "tumor electrification" on Google for a very enlightening mind trip."Replies

[YEA] 12/14/2010: Sweety from Cartersville, Georgia,usa: "I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer 3B at the age of 30 with only 3months to live. My husband and I had a friend who was an herbalist and introduced me to the Essiac Tea. I did not tell my doctor what I was doing until one day he said, "what have you been doing, your blood work is better than ever. " That was 12 years ago. My life expectancy was 4 years at most. I have watched all our children grow up and now I am able to spend time with our grandchildren. Take it from me it is a LIFESAVER!!!"Replies
[YEA] 01/24/2011: Ruby from Beverly, MA replies: "I agree. My father had a friend who was on deaths doorstep with cancer. He had been admitted and looked like a corpse. We brewed essiac tea and gave it to him. He finished several gallons was released and continued to take the tea. That was 7 years ago. He was cured. You have to make sure your source is good though. Also I believe Hulda Clark, that all disease is caused by either a parasite or toxin. Think about it. Laetril (apricot pits) also cure cancer. Laetril from what I've read has a naturally occuring cyanide. It is also found in apple seeds. I don't know a lot about laetril, although it seems harmless to us, I wonder if this cyanide becomes active when ingested against parasites. I'm beginning to think the same thing of essiac. I believe the plants used are obviously an anti-parasitic/detox concoction.
It seems like a lot of herbs that act as such have an incredible effect of improving one's health. I think the diet option is basically starving the cancer, removing what it needs to thrive, while essiac may kill it off directly."

[YEA] 03/28/2008: Greek from Chicago, IL: "My dad was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1985. We live in a polluted community, he smoked, and my families diet was pretty heavy in red meat. He was given the proper medication and then discharged. He knew that cancer usually returns so he decided to modify his diet.
The first thing he did was stop smoking. He then changed his diet. No more red meats. He made sure to eat plenty of vegetables and fruits every single day. His main fruit of choice is bananas. The addition he made, which I think was the most valuable was garlic. Garlic is a huge staple for mediterraneans, so this wasn't a big adjustment. It was a big adjustment for everyone else in the house that valued breathable air. Well, 23 years later, he's as healthy as a horse. He gave cancer one hell of a beating.
I take the garlic pills because of the obvious odor. I work with a lot of people and I don't want any embarassing odor. Is there anything that can kill the bad breath or the odor that comes from the pores?"
[YEA] 03/02/2007: Barry from Blountville, TN: "Garlic quickly killed my cancer and saved my life. Hi, My name is Barry Bittinger. My Friends call me Boone Doggie. I have had cancer three times, and I used garlic alone to kill the cancer all three times. The first time I used garlic it was a mistake, I misunderstood the difference between a clove and a bulb. My daughter Lynn told me to eat a clove a week to cleanse my blood. I mostly ignored her, there was nothing wrong with my blood I thought. Then, after having a growth in my right lymph nodes, hurting, and swelling and growing to a massive size, It all turned to blood poison, this was after having the cancer for several months. I would have gone to the doctor, but I was warned about letting a doctor just cut it out. I decided to wait and try other things. NOTHING WORKED, it just cost a lot. Then it all broke loose, the time had come. I tried to drive my car to where my oldest daughter worked, I COULDN'T I was totally zapped of all my energy. I went back home to wait for the grim reaper to take me away, I'm not a fool, I would go to the hospital, but only as a last resort. A acquaintance of mine had lymph node cancer, he went to a hospital and his lymph nodes were removed, He died quickly. Don't let them do that I was told. When all went south, and blood poison had taken over my arm, at first my right shoulder half way down my mussel, I lay down because I was so exhausted, for about 30 or 40 minutes. When I awoke, the blood poison had moved to a position 5 or 6 inches above my wrist. I knew if I lay down again it would be over, So I thought of a place where I could go in my condition that I could drive my car and make it, and get some garlic. This I did to clean my blood. Not knowing that in doing so I would also cure myself of cancer! I went to a near by store and purchased 4 bulbs of garlic. I thought that I had purchased 4 cloves. This is what saved my life! not knowing the difference between a bulb and a clove. If I had known the difference between a clove and a bulb I would be dead today. The garlic that I ate not only Stopped the blood poison in it's tracks, It killed the cancerous growth (The size of a baseball) in my right under arm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I returned home with the garlic, I got out a plate and broke the garlic bulb, I thought was a clove all over the plate. I started eating all i could eat. about 7 or 8 pieces every time. which amounted to about a bulb a day. I ate the garlic two times a day, about half a bulb at a time. (there is more to the story I can tell later) For now the important message is (GARLIC KILLS CANCER QUICKLY) I should have started eating garlic all the time, but I didn't. I got cancer two more times. Once in my stomach and once in my eye, I killed the cancer both times by repeating the mistake I made the first time. The stomach cancer I killed by going to a dinner the first night that I realized it was there, The first treatment didn't get it. The stomach cancer had grown to the size of a goose egg in only one day. I had to do the same thing the next evening when I went to eat. I ate a measure of granulated garlic on each bite I took. The next morning it was dead. When I got the cancer in my eye, I didn't eat the garlic, I simply taped a sliver of garlic over the cancerous spot, it burned for about 4 or 5 hours. When I awoke the next morning the garlic had turned the cancer spot into a blister. I dissolved in a day or two, But left me the biggest black eye I have ever had. I can be reached for more detail at email@example.com I now eat a small amount of garlic every day, I have had no more cancer since I started the garlic once a day."Replies

Thank goodness for earthclinic!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I would like to add a blog I just installed on Yahoo 360 on how others are finding garlic very helpful in staving off death by cancer by using garlic against it.
Entry for April 11, 2007: 14 years ago I had a serious bought with cancer, It was then I made the mistake that killed my cancer and saved my life. I have been trying to relay this information to you all since that time.
It is obvious to me that some people don't want to know anything different when what is told to them, they are having to much fun with this. And many are getting very rich!
I have some news about the ones who have found out about Garlic. Myself, I am sure I would not have made it, except for the garlic, and now several others have used garlic against cancer and are OK. I have an email to share from one person who expected to die from prostate cancer, His wife had already been killed by cancer, I want to share my latest email from him.
Then again, a lady friend of mine, K, is what I am going to call her, Another friend of hers whispered to me, K has been diagnosed with brain cancer, She only has 6 months to live. The first thing I did was get her phone no. and call to tell her about garlic. The results are, she started by eating a bulb of garlic a day, Then tapering off to a clove a day. Her cancer symptoms are gone, her pain is gone, and she has gone back to work, in a cancer killed state. this is a 2007 story, This whole episode started 6 weeks ago, a woman who was given 6 months to live has been given many more yrs to live because she used garlic to cure herself of brain cancer. I first heard of her cancer trouble in early 2007 it is now April 11,2007, now and she (K) is no longer worried about death from brain cancer.
The other story I have to share with you today has taken a little longer. But instead of trying to tell the story myself, I will cut and paste his latest email to me
This is S's latest email, he is from the UK,
"Hi Barry,wanted to up-date you after the latest hospital visit. Well great news to tell. In sept 06 when the trouble started my PSA count was 13.9 . Couldn't pass water & awful pain in the lower region. Found you & also started garlic.Took a Whole bulb on 2 separate days. Next reading in Jan 07 was 4.2 alarm bells ringing as still well above the acceptable 0--3 The next step was to have a biopsy to test for cancer cells, massively invasive & huge side effects. So we agreed to wait a while & have another test first. I did as you said & organised change in my life. Looked for calm in my mind. At this time i was on a drug to relax my muscles in that area to assist in passing water. Stopped the pills at the end of Jan 07 as hate pills. Started taking 1 garlic piece 3 times a week. You said increase it a little so i slowly built up to 3 pieces each day every day by end of March.Find it hard to swallow but try to imagine the good it is doing me. Next check was Feb 07 & was 3.9 still high but heading in the right direction.I still had an ache in the same place. Barry the inspiration i got from you & watching the numbers fall helped me so much. The latest check last week was 3.2 must get into the 0---3 group so still lots of work to do. Still have an ache which needs investigating, otherwise feel so much better. Will up-date you next check, positive thinking & all that so God willing it will be in the 0----3 Bless you my friend, S"
after using garlic to rid himself of prostate cancer.
This is good as I can do, If you can't believe, that garlic gets rid of cancer, then what can I say, I am only here to help because of what garlic did for me, You could at least try some garlic for a few days if you find you have contracted a cancer, I'll gurantee you may be rid of the cancer before you make for your doctors appointment.
Later Your Friend Boone Doggie sometimes called by my real name Barry.
This is my story and I'm sticking to it."
Garlic, Cayenne, Chili, Iodine, Baking Soda, Tomato Juice
10/19/2010: Balticseaviking from La Ventana, Baja California Sur, Mexico: "I have been on HBP medicine for years and I was diagnosed with what the Drs. said was prostate cancer. I of course did lots of research and came up with a, what I call, my everything formula. I make my own cayenne tincture and a kind of garlic tincture. I use habenero peppers as they are the hottest I can find here in Mexico, if I could find hotter I would use them. Anyhow I take 5ml of the tincture, a tablespoon of the garlic, which is kinda like a tincture and is made the same way a tincture is made, two tablespoons of ACV, four drops of Lugol's Iodine, 8 ounces of tomato juice and 8 ounces of purified water, also a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix it all until the foaming stops, drink it down. I find it tastes nice, hot, but nice. Of course I didn't start out with 5mls of tincture, I started with 2 and worked my way up. I had a cat scan and a bone scan last month, both came out clear with no indication of disease and the blood pressure is now normal. Bet you can guess what the Drs. wanted to do- right, put me on chemo and radiation. When I asked why they had no explanation, guess it is because of the ungodly amount of money they make with these procedures. Try it you will get used to the taste and will look forward to you daily Whamo!"

08/15/2012: Riz from Ortonville, Mi: "taken from internet...thoughts?))
Study highlights role of glutamine in absence of glucose in growth of B cell tumor.
Cancer cells have been long known to have a "sweet tooth, " using vast amounts of glucose for energy and for building blocks for cell replication.
Now, a study by a team of researchers at Johns Hopkins and elsewhere shows that lymph gland cancer cells called B cells can use glutamine in the absence of glucose for cell replication and survival, particularly under low-oxygen conditions, which are common in tumors.
Writing in the Jan. 4, 2012, edition of Cell Metabolism, Anne Le, M. D. , and a team of investigators collaborating with the Johns Hopkins Brain Science Institute, say the finding is critical for developing innovative cancer therapies because it offers "proof of concept" evidence that curbing the growth of B cell cancers can be accomplished by inhibiting a glutamine enzyme called glutaminase.
Le notes that although little is known about glutamine's role in the growth of B cell cancer, the amino acid circulates in the blood at the highest level among the 20 amino acids that do so.
The tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA or Krebs cycle) is classically regarded as a pathway for glucose oxidation. However, the experiments by Le and the team show that B cells oxidize glutamine when glucose is absent.
The study also found that when oxygen is scarce, there is enhanced conversion of glutamine to glutathione, an important agent for controlling the accumulation of oxygen-containing chemically reactive molecules that cause damage to normal cells.
When the investigators used a glutaminase inhibitor, cancerous growth of B cells was stopped in petri dishes.
"The flexibility of the TCA cycle in using both glutamine and glucose pathways may be important for cancer cells to proliferate and survive, especially under the low-oxygen and nutrient-deprived conditions often encountered in the tumor microenvironment, " says Le.
Now, perhaps, scientists can exploit that survival strategy to stop cancer, according to former Johns Hopkins scientist Chi Dang, M. D. , now at the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania. "A broader and deeper understanding of cancer cell metabolism and cancer cells'ability to reprogram biochemical pathways under metabolic stress can be a rich ground for therapeutic approaches targeting tumor metabolism, " he says.
In addition to Le, an assistant professor in the Department of Pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, other researchers from Johns Hopkins who participated in this study include Sminu Bose, Arvin Gouw, Joseph Barbi, Takashi Tsukamoto, Camilo J. Rojas and Barbara Slusher. The Johns Hopkins Brain Science Institute, where Tsukamoto, Rojas and Slusher are faculty, is pursuing the development of new glutaminase inhibitor drugs."
08/11/2012: Robert Henry from Ten Mile, Tn Usa: "HI U GOOD FOLKS DOIN, , , , , , , Thought I'd bring you up to date on the carcinoma that I had on my hand. First, I tried to handle it by treating it with iodine. That was affecting it but too slow so I got my doctor to cut it out. It healed very well, except there was a tiny black spot still there. Even though the pathologists reported to the sergeon that he got the entire cancer, I knew he had not. I then ordered Bloodroot Black Salve from Uragury from the American the FDA sent to prison for selling the stuff here several years ago. Anyway , the salve caused the cancer to harden and start to rise just like it did with the iodine. Only this time it also ate deep into my hand. Dear hearts, there is much pain to this procedure. Soon the entire thing came off and left a pretty deep hole in my hand. That is what it is supposed to do. Now the hole has filled in and only a small scab remains. I am satisfided that the cancer is gone. On future skin cancers, I will use the solution made from the Egg Plant. It is slower but is not as agressive as Bloodroot Black Salve. You got to get the Egg Plant solution from Australia.
Got ATS to tell you, but you will have to wait 6 months on this one. I got another serious health problem and have elected to go the natural way. It's a goodie and I kinda scared, but I got a program and it will be thumbs up or thumbs down. At 76, I have lived a full life and am going out with dignity one way or the other.
