Food for Thought :: Can We Eat To Starve Cancer?

I rarely post videos because personally I don’t usually take the time to watch them. But this one is worth your 20 minutes. It gets really good about halfway through. Stick with him. Trust me.

If for some reason the video doesn’t load for you, you can find it at Ted.com.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. I don’t know about you, but I’m about to ramp up my intake of these foods.

Hat tip to my friend Grace

    The video doesn’t show up to me but I was listening to Suzanne Sommers the other day and she said that when she travels, she eats a lot of antioxidants to fight the free radicals that cause cancer. My mom always taught us to eat a lot of raw, organic foo to prevent cancer since we all have cancer cells in our body. A healthy body can fight them, though, so my family eats a huge, organic salad every day and so far, so good! We also don’t eat processed food.

    I think our diet has a major effect on our health. I do wonder if those 79,000 men had tomatoes from cans or glass bottles. I’ve had cancer touch my life in many ways so hearing this has has only made my desire to keep my family healthy by eating foods that are local, organic and with a healthy base. I currently have a good friend that is fighting for her life with cancer that started in her liver then moved to her lungs and now into her brain. She has been through many treatments but I wonder if they have heard of this…I will share.

    I like that video. My sister in law had a 5 year battle with cancer. She ate very healthy and organic foods. Her diet consisted mostly of antiangiogenic foods (except the chocolate she eliminated ALL sugar) and she ate a lot of her food raw sometimes in a blender. Well her doctor seemed to think that it prolonged her life a little longer. She was diagnosed to only live 2 years but made it 5. The interesting thing to me is she ate really well (organic, natural all the way) most of her adult life she had the cancer genes in her from her mother. Who knows what’s already in our bodies from the start.

      Yeah, just goes to show, you can do all you want to try and stay healthy, but ultimately it’s not up to us. I don’t know enough science to know whether or not this guy makes logical sense, but I thought it was interesting.
