    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    Thanks ChemoMan!

    That's one thing I'm learning in my forays to the health food store, nearly everything (except for the bulk foods and herbs and spices) can be found in less expensive form somewhere else. Eg. virtually all the pills and powders contain nutrients that are better gotten from food, and ingredients that can't be gotten from food people eat can't, by their very nature, be considered essential. And many of their exorbitantly priced "exotic" foods and supplements are regular fare at the Asian market (shitakes and other "medicinal" mushrooms, goji berries, seaweeds, miso, etc.), where they cost a fraction of what they do after being packaged as "natural healing" type products.

    Eschewing supplements is one piece of orthodox medical advice I followed from the getgo, because some have been shown to interfere with cancer treatment. I am all for loading up on those vitamins and minerals via food, though. There are no magic bullets, but there is good evidence that refined foods are deadly and whole vitamin and fiber rich ones can help prevent and improve cancer treatment.
    Dxed with Stage IB2 cervical cancer by one doctor and IVB by another in 10/11. Finished six weeks of pelvic chemorad in 12/11. Lung tumor found in 10/11 dxed as IB NSCLC in 8/12. Dec. '12 scan showed clear pelvis, no growth in lung tumor and new activity in remote lymph nodes. Is it a Stage I and a Stage IV, three Stage Is, or a cured cancer with something benign going on? Lost interest and went off the reservation after a year of unsuccessfully fighting for a good biopsy.

    Excellent point Barnabelle. In, for want of a better word, our 'global' culture, a pill is what we expect to get better. Eat all the junk you want just make sure you take a supplement. WRONG. A balanced diet is what is needed. Always a balanced diet wins hands down compared to a diet of junk and supplements. If you eat well then all will fall into place.

    Exactly, a balanced diet is imperative and should help with illnesses and those who are illness-free. Perhaps they vary in moderation from person to person but I do believe it's necessary to take in all nutrients.

    This article is about long-term affect of diet on epigenetics to impact metastasis. The article does not suggest diet will cure anybody. The role of diet on epigenetics is a topic of much discussion nowdays.
