Cancer - general knowledge

Just received this and thought it's good general knowledge to be shared. Unfortunately, not able to give real credit as actual source is unknown.

Important information about cancer prevention:

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet
and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells
and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,
gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver,
kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and
damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often
reduce tumour size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and
radiation do not result in more tumour destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and
radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence
the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and
become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause
cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells
by not feeding it with the foods it need to multiply.

a Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one
important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like
NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is
harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or
molasses but only in very small amounts.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the
gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk
and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being
starved. Milo, Ovaltine, Horlicks are made with milk and best

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is
acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than
beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth
hormones, parasites, etc which are all harmful to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains,
seeds, nuts and a little fruits helps put the body into an 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 growth of healthy cells.

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have caffeine. Green tea
is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become
putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining
from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein
walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy
the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,
Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc) to enable the
body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements
(Maitake e.g ) are known to cause cancer cells apoptosis, that is,
induce cancer cells to commit suicide.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive
and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and
acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit.
Learn to relax, enjoy and trust God for healing.

16 Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.
Exercising daily and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to
the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to
destroy cancer cells.

17. Cancer can be reversed with nutrition, supplements and clinically
proven complementary and alternative therapies.

18. Cancer can be healed by divine intervention of God the Healer.....

1. Sugar is a cancer feeder. Avoid sugar Sugar substitutes like
Equal, Spoonful, NutraSweet are made with Aspartame, a chemical that
is harmful to the body. A better natural alternative is Manuka honey
in small amounts.

2. Milk causes the body to produce mucus Cancer thrives on mucus. A
better calcium alternative is unsweetened soya milk.

3. Green tea has anti-cancer properties. It is a better substitute
for coffee and tea, which have caffeine, bad for people with cancer.

4. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour.
Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

5. Meat like pork, beef, chicken contain livestock antibiotics,
growth hormones, parasites, etc., which are all harmful for people
with cancer. It is better to eat fish, or eat a little free-range
chicken. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines
become putrefied and leads to more toxic build-up.

6. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining
from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein
walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy
the cancer cells.

7. Water - best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known
toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic,
avoid it.

8. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink
fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and
eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

A little effort on our part will yield great return in the long
run... keep up the discipline and enjoy every single moment in life.


  1. Good post, Happysurfer. Life saving advice. As close friend of mine developed breast cancer and followed a healthful diet with suppliments. She also underwent some chemotherapy (after boosting her system) and surgery. She survived and is free of cancer now. She says the nutitritional approach early on helped the other approaches to work.

  2. No.11e is debatable lah! No coffee? I have read studies elsewhere that begs otherwise.
    Distilled water is acidic? Didn't know that one.
    But Great Information nonetheless.

    Cancer is a very emotional topic especially when relatives, love ones are inflicted.
    From my observations over the years, the only people I know or heard of who survived cancer are those that pursued an alternative treatments path rather than conventional cancer treatments which in most cases hasten the demise (and financially burdened those left behind).

    BTW are you selling any MLM products? ;o)

  3. Hi Pandabonium, thanks for sharing that info. I think it's also key to have a positive outlook on the whole thing. I know of cancer-stricken folks who couldn't accept the fact and they didn't survive the fight. I also know of people who are really positive and take pains to fight it and they're still around.

    I read an interesting article (I have it archived somewhere and will post it when I find it) about the importance of avoiding dairy products to starve cancer cells. The article is actually from a survivor. She has published a book on it too.

  4. fh2o, it's difficult to avoid everything (where is the excitement in life then?) and the best approach is to take everything in moderation - bak kua included. ;)

    Your second para is debatable too as so far I've seen total recovery of people I know who underwent the conventional (as in Western medicine) treatment.

    BTW, I am not selling any MLM product.

  5. Hello Happy,

    Hate to pour cold water.

    A lot of the stuff you put up is NOT medically true!!!!!

    Hate to dissect your post, since we are of the same colour.

    Anyway, as they always say: Dun beleive all the things your read on the internet.

  6. Hey Robin, thanks for yr input. 'Not medically true' is rather harsh and debatable I should think. Whose medicine, western or oriental? One good example is 'rice'. For the Chinese, if one has a fever, the advice is to avoid rice but according to the western doctor, the patient can eat anything, rice included.

    You are right though about not to believe all the things you read on the Internet. A lot of the things I posted are from well-meaning friends who received them from their well-meaning friends and so on. The wise thing to do is to use discretion and logic. Thanks again. Take note, people.

  7. thanks 'BIN!
    Now I can go back to enjoying my kayaking with my favourite brew. Phew!

    happy - 'loo my luan luan kong aye sai boh!!
    'har si lung'!!

    Hi ... thanks for dropping by ... i am bookmarking you :)

  9. Jane Jane... good info... now, gotta go get some taugeh juice to drink...

  10. haha, being a pharmacist with a sinseh training, I can let me tell you the myth about rice and fever, if you want to know.

    hahaha.. You may be mixing Chinese medicine with old wifes tales too.

    Like dun take seafood after surgery.

    Dun bath for 49 days after birth of a child.

    etc etc

  11. Oh-no! This is bad news...I better keep away from my mom's friends.

    Lrong, why Jane?

  12. waaaa....

    good info.
    but honestly.... i'm kinda carefree about this thing, which is bad... i know

    but luckily i din drink milo, ovaltine, milks, etc... :P

  13. jellyfish, most people are (carefree) until a health problem hits. That's the reality of life.

  14. Most people see no reason to worry about their health until their health gives them a reason to worry about it.

    (Did that make sense...?)

  15. MM, you certainly hit the nail on the head, so to speak. That is human nature for you.

    There is some good info on here but this report is a hoax. Do a search on google!

    I have heard that an alkinine body can't develop cancer but many don't realize that wheat even if it's whole grain is acidic. Thats a quick way of recognizing this i sa hoax.

    With meat it depends on the quality. Go grass-fed or organic. Better to have meat than wheat.

    Grain lead greatly to inflamation. Someone with bad joints, tell them to take out all grains and increase their veggies and smart fats and they'll feel improvement right away.

    my 2cents.

  17. Anon, thanks for dropping by and sharing what you have shared. I'd remember that info about grains and joint pains. Thanks.

  18. Hi, I came across your blog while trying to find where to get Essiac in KL-do you know?

  19. Gita, I found this site. You may want to check it out.

  20. This will be very useful for me, principally because my mother has lung cancer, it was detected around 6 months ago, so I'm searching info about causes, consequences and preventions.
