The Ketogenic diet resource site have produced a new e-book specifically about the role of ketogenic diet in the fight against cancer.
The Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet eBook

For those thinking about the ketogenic diet as a preventative measure then this site has a nice summary of the basics.

Sugar Makes Cancer Light-up in MRI Scanners

Quote:
Tumors use large quantities of glucose to sustain their growth. By injecting normal, unlabeled sugar, UCL scientists have developed a way to detect its accumulation in tumors.
If we can use the knowledge that cancer cells use glucose to identify where cancer is most active then surely restricting the availability of glucose is the first step to slowing/preventing cancer growth?

Cancer is ultimately the result of cells that uncontrollably grow and do not die. Normal cells in the body follow an orderly path of growth, division, and death. Programmed cell death is called apoptosis, and when this process breaks down, cancer begins to form. Unlike regular cells, cancer cells do not experience programmatic death and instead continue to grow and divide. This leads to a mass of abnormal cells that grows out of control.

That indeed is true but readers here with cancer or those who want to understand cancer better so they can slow cancer progression or spread may benefit from understanding what may help induce apoptosis.

Because there is so much money being made by the cancer industry they aren't going to promote or research that leads to better cancer control with cheap supplements or dietary changes.

We know Acidic extracellular pH promotes metastasis and we know bicarbonate raises pH but who can make money out of bicarbonate so who is going to investigate the role of bicarbonate (or an alkaline diet) in preventing metastasis

If we know the preferred fuels for cancer cell growth doesn't it make sense to attempt to starve cancer cells through dietary manipulation?

We've know for long enough how Vitamin D and curcumin induce apoptosis in cancer cells but how many people are advised to raise 25(OH)D to the natural level for human DNA or use curcumin as a strategy to prevent cancer developing?

Default ketogenic diet

I have recently received a number of queries from patients and practitioners who are curious about a handful of studies and anecdotal reports that indicate a ketogenic diet may help to curtail cancer growth. For those not familiar with the ketogenic diet, itís a very low carbohydrate diet that contains moderate amounts of protein and a high percentage of fats.

If ever I get the bad news diagnosis a fully ketogenic diet would be my first option (though my current diet borders on being ketogenic) as it just seems common sense not to provide cancer with an unlimited supply of it's favorite fuel.

The Ketogenic Diet and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Prolong Survival in Mice with Systemic Metastatic Cancer

However we have to remember that cancer is a cunning B****** and does retain the metabolic flexibility use any fuel source.

It makes sense to restrict calories as much as possible
Dietary restriction suppresses tumor growth, reduces angiogenesis, and improves tumor microenvironment

We should also remember that cancer enjoys, thrives, spreads in an acidic environment so it makes sense, if we want to reduce the potential for metastasis to ensure we have adequate bicarbonate reserves as we age.

Our DDIL has Bowel Cancer and is having Allopathic treatment for it but unbeknown to her Onc she is also using naturapathic meds as well as using a Rife Machine that was so kindly loaned to her, so we are hoping that at least the natural things will work for her,her only problem is she will not follow a good diet.

There is a tree here in Australia, that is believed to have cancer curing abilities, and is used by the Australian Aborigines.

Iodine is incredibly important too. Unfortunately, I have yet to find anything on line that even remotely compares to Dr Brownstiens book on iodine.
