A Cancer Update From Johns Hopkins

I was going to post something witty tonight (yeah, right!!) but I found this article and thought this was more important.  Their guidelines look a little difficult to follow, but it is interesting information.
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 fewbillion. 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 tumors.

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 tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor 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 complications.

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 needs 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. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. A better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

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.

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 and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help 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. 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).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meats 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 like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

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 and enjoy life.

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.

Further informatiom:
1. No plastic containers in microwave.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This
information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.
Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.

This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware,
Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the
same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.

Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper.
It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc.

He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food
restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper.
The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes
poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap
and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

I realize that this was a long read but I hope each of you stuck with it and are reading this now!  I can tell you from personel expreience that cancer is a VERY cruel disease.  If you only follow a few of these guidelines, it might be helpful!  Stay well.

    Wow!  what a super article!  I’ve been trying to take my vitamins and supplements more regularly lately and this article helped me realize how important they are.  It did mention that coffee and tea were bad because of the caffein but why is caffein bad?  Too much can be acidic, but a little can’t be  that bad, can it?  I drink a 50/50 mixture of real and decafe in the mornings because it doesn’t upset my stomach and tastes the same.  Lots of info there to digest (no pun intended)! 

  5. Jade says:

    what about the water bottle in the freezer?

  6. ~Special K~ says:

    hi, just stopped in because it’s been a few days and I just got your new addy… sorry you lost your space. I need to make a copy of all the lists on my page – just in case I think.anyhow… if I let this list infiltrate my head I’ll just worry about getting cancer by all that I’m doing wrong. I’m too busy trying to fight getting every disease and ailment that my parents have, plus taking care of the one that I already have, so… whew! got enough to worry about.give up chocolate??? are you serious???? like that will ever happen. hmph!take carehugs and loveKim

  7. Kat says:

    I never knew that about water bottles frozen! EEK!
    Good info. I’m passing it on to coworker who is freshly diagnosed with throat cancer.
    *pokes my tongue out at meanie MSN* and HURRAH! High 5’s Bob for creating a new one.
    IN YOUR FACE, MSN. You can’t keep a good man down!

  8. Xu says:

    Cancer is one of the  difficult diseses in the world ,so I think your article is very useful,esp reminding people not to heat food in plastic.
    I guess most diseases occur because of lfestyle,hence keeping a good habit of life is the core.

    Very interesting.  My husband beat colon cancer and survived for 15 years.  He died last December after a two year bout with lymphoma of the liver and spleen.  I lost 3 sisters and 1 brother to cancer.  It is one of the most dreaded words in my vocabulary.

    Nice new blog! 🙂
    I received this email while I was in nursing school and it just didn’t seem right to me- so I did some research on it and although some things are partially true, most things are not. I can’t find all of the sites I found last year, but here are a few if you’d like more information:
    Take care

    Morning! Yes I have read a lot about these things as well (because of mine and Nick my hubby’s health troubles) there are lots of things to follow but it is worth sticking to a healthy lifestyle where possible, I have got rid of all my household toxic cleaning stuff and replaced with the good old fashioned methods!
    Keep well yourself love and hugs button x
