      Here is your quick answer, at this point..none. What they are looking for is an antigen that is present on the surface of the cells that are only apparent with an anomaly like a tumor or infection; depending on which marker; which for you would be probably be a CEA (Carcinoembryonic Antigen). If you look, you will see that I sent you info on it in our first correspondence and I will put the link regarding Tumor Markers here. Miss you lmy ittle friend...I hope all went well yesterday, Carm.

      ? As long as you are actually eating food and not various chemicals, pesticides, and food imitations, there is, to the best of my knowledge, no food from which you need to stay away.

      I wouldn't consider Splenda or Aspertame food, nor genetically modified organisms, nor additives that are put in packages sold as food to be food. Even these things would not affect the test so much as they might increase your body's susceptibility to cancer. Try to not drink a ton of soda or prepared french fries or frozen dinners and such. Prepare meals from fresh, if and when possible.

      Although the FDA thinks the jury is still out on the stuff from the above paragraph, researchers in France have confirmed tumor development on rats from being fed GMOs and that formaldehyde forms in the body from the supposed sugar substitutes.

      Kindest regards
