    Change of diet, have you changed 100% or just a little, or not at all?

    After diagnosis I have had lots of friends offer their "advice" on my diet. I need to eat only vegetables, I need to stop eating anything with grains in it, I need to eat more blueberries, blah, blah. Have you changed your diet, if so how much? I have decided for the time being not to freak out, but to avoid the processed meats, and try more vegetables and salads. What do you think?

      They are finding out MOST diseases are caused by inflammation caused by Foods and other things we use and breath. In The China Study they talk about the inflammatory nature of Flesh Foods and Simple Carbs. It is especially a problem causing Arterial Diseases......Bill Clinton finally went Raw And he is off most of his meds, lost about 35 lbs. and hasn't needed any more stents or bi passes. SO....we take our own paths based on free will and free information....lol
      WE are responsible for our lives not our Docs or Family Members. BUT as I always said WE all have to die to make room for the ones coming behind us. IF we didn't do that WE'D be like a cancer cell.....lol....Cancer cells are immortal but eventually outsmart itself by killing the Host where it lives. I guess greed is ALL OVER....lol

      barryboomer--- I get and agree with everything you're saying 100%. In my humble opinion everything you say is right on. I take care of my ex-husband who has melanoma all over. It's XXX. Often I wish I could change places with him just so he could experience what it is to feel good again. I once told a doctor I believe they have cures for some cancers now and he agreed with me! I firmly believe that. A friend that works in a big hospital here told me that a great percentage of the money they need to keep the hospital running is from cancer treatments. Scary.

      No I didn't change my diet at all and being gluten free because I have to being a celiac already w/ cancer on top of it was a double whammy. Yet I find that having already been eating as such created a form of benefit over side effects and other issues I find that others deal with during radiation and after treatment that I am not as I had already built back up my immune system long before my diagnosis. Not sure if that is a true correlation, but I'm sticking to it and believe in it for now. I feel stronger because of it and that's what matters.
