• Can We Eat to Starve Cancer’s Life Force?

    By -


    Have you noticed the central role food plays in your life? From the time we are born, we develop a deep association linking food with emotions. From infants whose cries are answered with either their mother's breast or a bottle, we move through life linking food to emotions. We celebrate holidays, weddings, graduations, and promotions with food. We drown our sorrows, have power lunches, and look for aphrodisiac food to boost our sexual appeal. And who can forget the tears and lust created by food in the movie “Like Water For Chocolate”? We use food to express, suppress, and deal with love and many other emotions.

    The inside of a healthy body has a thriving ecology and a thriving economy in its own right. No less could be said for your blood alone.

    A factory of 19 billion tiny capillaries, for instance, have the ability to repair you or break you.

    The lack of these thriving blood vessels can lead to chronic disease states like lack of wound healing and strokes. But what happens when they are on overdrive and funnel into the microscopic cancers we all have? Living cancer! And more of it.

    There a number of ways to look at both the causes of and prevention of cancer. One of them is through the blood via angiogenesis – the creation of new blood vessels, that branch off from existing ones.

    Researcher William Li shows what angiogenesis means for cancer and the the types of foods that will starve the life force from cancer.

    Critical examination of this latter case gives rise to a number of questions. Seasoned hospice clinicians will wonder whether sophisticated palliative care would have uncovered other options available to this patient. However, two points of relevance to the current discussion stand out: a) neither starvation nor dehydration seemed to contribute to this patient's physical distress, and b) the patient lived for an unexpectedly long time. In addressing the prolonged course of his patient, Sullivan emphasizes that she was not known to have an underlying terminal illness or any ongoing catabolic process. Additionally, she began her fast with apparently normal nutritional stores (she is described as having been “always mildly obese”) and her refusal of fluid followed two weeks of intravenous hydration.
