  • Cancer and Paleo

    Hi,

    I'm looking for any literature that may support that going to a Paleo/Primal lifestyle will help the fight/prevention against cancer. Any and all links are welcome.

    Thanks.

    You would probably have the most success focusing on individual aspects of the paleo/primal lifestyle, since there are very few studies on this way of eating. Specifically, I would look for information on things like vegetable consumption, industrial oils, sugar, and hormones in conventionally produced meat.

    Just to get you started, Richard Nikoley of Free the Animal had a recent post on sugar and cancer, including links to a number of studies: http://freetheanimal.com/2010/10/kee...ar-vegans.html

    If you or someone you love is fighting cancer, I wish you the best for a healthy and speedy recovery.

        A man named Doug Kaufmann has been preaching for nearly 40 years that cancer often has a fungal connection. Medical journals admit that very often it is not possible to distinguish cancer from fungal infestation. Numerous papers from Johns Hopkins, Harvard, etc have been saying this since the 40's but physicians tend to avoid their own research. Cancer is big money.

        What does that have to do with the primal/cancer question?

        Kaufmann's plan, which entails diet and frequent but light exercise, has been touted to have had some good effect on certain cancer problems. His diet is under the umbrella that includes paleo and primal. Basically, no sugar, no grains, no starches, limited fruit, pastured rather that grain fed meat, using the 'right' oils, and all round proper nutrition. Does all that sound familiar?

        The lack of sugar--either directly or indirectly via carbohydrates (veg's and fruits) is what kills the fungus. If the cancer really is fungus, well, then it kills the cancer too.

        The rule for all disease is F U P O fungus until proven otherwise.

        Check 'knowthecause.com' or find books by Kaufmann in the library.

            Cbelling,
            Dr. Davis is not afraid of calling a spade a spade, I love his honest NO BS discussions.

            Originally posted by Dr. Davis
            Visceral fat, on the other hand, is metabolically active. It produces large quantities of inflammatory signals ("cytokines"), such as various interleukins, leptin, and tumor necrosis factor, that can trigger inflammatory responses in other parts of the body. Visceral fat also oddly fails to produce the protective cytokine, adiponectin, that protects us from diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
            It follows logically that foods that increase blood glucose the most will thereby trigger the greatest increase in visceral fat. Eggs don't lead to visceral fat, nor do salmon, olive oil, beef, broccoli, or almonds. But wheat, cornstarch, potato starch, rice starch, tapioca starch, and sugars will all trigger glucose-insulin that leads to visceral fat accumulation.
            Fructose is also an extravagant trigger of visceral fat. Fructose is found in sucrose (50% fructose), high-fructose corn syrup, agave syrup, maple syrup, and honey.
            Increased visceral fat can be suggested by increased waist circumference. The inflammatory hotbed created by excess visceral fat has therefore been associated with increased likelihood of heart attack, cardiovascular mortality, diabetes, cancer, and total mortality.

            Green vegetables are the best foods on earth. They reduce risk for cancer, diabetes, bone disease, and coronary heart disease.


            Recall that the innocent appearing wheat belly is actually a hotbed of inflammatory activity beneath the surface. The visceral fat of the wheat belly, i.e., fat kidneys, fat liver, fat intestines, fat pancreas, produces abnormal inflammatory signals, such as various interleukins, tumor necrosis factor, and leptin. These are the inflammatory signals that create insulin resistance and diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and cancer.


            Visceral fat also, oddly, triggers estrogen release. Estrogen triggers growth of breast tissue. That's why females with wheat bellies have up to four-fold (400%) greater likelihood of breast cancer.

              also google for wurzburg cancer studies. They actually had terminal cancer patients go on a very strict low carb diet. Results were very encouraging.

                I wholeheartedly second this recommendation! I read the book and loved it. Nothing he says really contradicts Paleo, except that he suggests lean meats and whole grains, but if I remember correctly he never addresses why whole grains or lean meats are good for fighting cancer. He does mention how refined grains and sugars are bad, though, and I think he just suggests whole grains because it's "common knowledge" that they're good for you.

                He also talks a lot about anti inflammatory foods, and how good omega 3's are, and these aspects are really played up in the paleo/primal community. It's an easy read and I think falls in line with primal thinking!

                    Very curious. Do you mean things like fungal infections? Like Athlete's foot and ring worm?

                      No, that's not the 'rule for all disease'.

                      Let's say it 1000 times plus one: correlaation does not equal causation.

                      The lack of sugar--either directly or indirectly via carbohydrates (veg's and fruits) is what kills the fungus. If the cancer really is fungus, well, then it kills the cancer too.
                      In the absence of sufficient D and zinc, even very low carb/low sugar diets won't reduce fungal overgrowth.

                        barryman9000: Yes, fungal infections like Athlete's foot, ring worm, asthma, hypertension, arthritis, atherosclerosis, etc. etc.

                        All of those things, actually 'anything' wrong in the body, can (cillicat, please note the word 'can') have a fungal infestation cause.




                        cillicat: Yes, Yes the rule is FUPO Fungal unless proven otherwise.

                        Note that it doesn't say just 'fungal', it says 'fungal unless proven otherwise'.

                        Also, if you re-read my post, I did say that proper nutrition is a required aspect. I would like to add that proper nutrition would eliminate the need for supplementation, however, none of us actually attains perfect nutrition, so supplementation is implied in the proper nutrition statement.



                        Point is----prove that a fungal attack is not the cause before subscribing to a lifetime of pharmaceuticals of the month and lucrative (but not for you) visits to physicians who ignore the possibility of a fungal infestation and a quick, inexpensive and permanent cure. I believe that most physicians would pursue a possible fungal cause for any disease, but they just don't know. Why? Because they weren't taught anything about it.


                        Note 1: There is a reason why medical schools, which are largely funded by pharmaceutical companies, do not teach prospective physicians anything about fungus and mycotoxins, other than definitions of the words. Can you guess what it is?

                        Note 2: I welcome criticism and comment. That is how I learn. I don't enjoy nit picking. Please read my posts before selecting a word or two to attack.

                          Periquin, I'm interested in learning more about this theory. I'll google, obviously, but have you any favorite resources you'd be willing to share?

                            BarbeyGirl: Check Doug Kaufmann's web site and TV show. Both are 'knowthecause'. His show airs twice a day. The first show is mostly information. Lots of guests, including PB's Mark. The second show is mostly selling. That's the one that Mark usually visits to sell Primal Defense and other things. That is where I first encountered Mark and his Daily Apple.

                            If you just 'touch' on the website everything is for sale. Sign on and get into the forum and find lots of information and recipes, etc..

                            He is selling three or four books. The Fungus Link--book 1 will really tell it all, but if you have the money, you can find things of interest in the other books. I bought the first book to have as a ready reference. I read the others standing in the health food store.

                            The cook book is super except that it sometimes allows grains. He has a phase one diet to 'cure', and a phase two diet to 'maintain'. Phase two allows gradual reintroduction of some grains and fruits that are verboten in phase one. I never moved on to the phase two diet.

                            You might also contact PB forum member, Shannon. She also used the phase one diet to heal and might have some added information for you.

                              The idea of cancer being a fungus totally makes sense to me. Anyone suffering or who knows someone suffering from cancer might also want to check out Kelley Eidem's info.
