Special Preventive Factors


dried apricots, bananas, beans, beets, broccoli, carrots, dulse, grapes, kale, olives, pecans, rice bran, sunflower seeds, wheat bran and germ. These foods help the body resist and overcome tumors, cysts, and malignancies.

  • Center your diet around potassium foods.

Here are more of them:

  • Dried apricots, asparagus, pearled barley,

dried navy beans, fresh lima beans, raw beets, sprouted bread with no salt, Brussels sprouts, cab- bage, cantaloupe, caraway seed, cauliflower, cel- ery seed, small leaves of chard, dark raw cher- ries, dandelion greens, dill seed, endive, unsulphurated figs (dried or raw), garlic, concord or emperor grapes, grapefruit, fresh horseradish, fresh lemons, lentils, fresh limes, nectarines, okra, onions, oranges, fresh parsley, dried or raw peaches, Bartlett pears, dry or fresh peas, persim- mons, raw pineapple (never canned), raw plums, dried or raw prunes, raw quinces, raisins, wild or brown rice, sage, rolled oats, spinach, squash (acorn, Hubbard, yellow summer), tangerines, raw tapioca, raw turnip leaves, and watermelon.

  • Drink potassium broths daily. Prepare them

from half-inch thick potato peelings, which are then cooked. Draw off the water and drink it.

  • You want foods which are high in iodine

and potassium, low in sodium, protein, and fat.

  • Potassium ascorbate (12-20 g) can be taken

as a partial potassium supplement. This product includes vitamin C.

  • Potassium and magnesium are among the

more crucial minerals for cancer recovery. Mag- nesium helps to stabilize cell membranes and el- evate immune activity while potassium plays a critical role in membrane permeability. (Magne- sium, 400-800 mg daily from aspartate, citrate, or orotate.)

  • Magnesium protects against cancer in gen-

eral (Medical Hypotheses, August 1980).

  • Calcium and magnesium have a beneficial

effect in helping the body resist colon cancer. Natu- ral iron supplements help prevent thyroid cancer. (But many iron supplements are dangerous! Take blackstrap molasses instead of iron pills.)

  • The New England Journal of Medicine re-

ported that calcium may prevent precancerous cells from becoming cancerous. Calcium protects against colon cancer (American Journal of Epi- demiology, September 1988).

  • Calcium supplements (2000 mg) provide a

marked suppression of rectal cancer proliferation. It inhibits early stages of colon cancer in geneti- cally vulnerable individuals.

  • Iodine and trace minerals are crucial. You

can obtain them by each day eating some Nova

Scotia dulse or Norwegian kelp. Both are special seaweeds which have a wide spectrum of trace min- erals. Food grown on the continents does not have all those trace minerals; rainwater has gradually depleted the soils.

  • Iodine protects against breast cancer (Lan-

cet, April 1976).

  • It is very important to keep the iodine level

of the blood normal, so both the thyroid and body tissues will have proper cell oxidation. Eat a suffi- cient amount of dulse or kelp each day. (Do not use California kelp.)

  • People with myxedema, or underactive thy-

roids, are more prone to developing cancer. So keep your thyroid in good condition with seaweed.

  • Japan and Iceland both have low goiter and

breast cancer rates. This may be because their diets are rich in iodine and selenium. Breast can- cer has been linked to an iodine deficiency. Japa- nese women have almost no breast cancer. Colon cancer rates in Japan are also low.

  • Studies at the University of Zurich and in

London Polytechnic reveal that brewer’s, or food, yeast gives improved resistance against cancer de- velopment. Brewer’s yeast is one of the best sources of selenium, an important anti-cancer mineral.

  • Selenium made the headlines, at the end of

1996, as a special trace mineral which could dra- matically reduce cancer in the human body. It com- pletely inhibited tumor growth in mice inoculated with tumor cells.

  • Selenium helps eliminate cancer in five ways:

It improves detoxification, bolsters immune func- tion, directly toxic to tumor cells, and is a valu- able anti-proliferative factor (Lancet, July 1983). Selenium intake should not exceed 2500 mcg (2.5 mg) per day.

  • Using selenium as a sole therapy, there was

a 38.8% favorable response rate in patients with oral cancer.

  • High doses of selenium (equivalent to 54

mg in humans) resulted in 83-90% reduction in rate of tumor growth in mice.

  • Long-term usage of 5000 mcg of selenium

may result in fingernail changes and hair loss. Se- lenite is more toxic than selenium bound to amino acids (i.e., selenomethionine). Ingestion of 1-5 mg/ kg body weight of selenite will produce toxic side effects. This is equivalent to 65,000 mcg in a 65 kg adult.

  • Chromium as picolinate is very helpful in

working with carcinoma. (400-800 mcg.)

  • Zinc as zinc picolinate (30-100 mg) is also a

significant help. It protects against prostrate can- cer (British Journal of Urology, October 1983).

  • Cesium is neither essential nor toxic in can-
