    Default Cancer Risk/Tumor Growth Reduced by Low Carb High Protein Diet

    June 14, 2011

    Eating a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet may reduce the risk of cancer and slow the growth of tumors already present, according to a study published in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
    The study was conducted in mice, but the scientists involved agree that the strong biological findings are definitive enough that an effect in humans can be considered.
    "This shows that something as simple as a change in diet can have an impact on cancer risk," said lead researcher Gerald Krystal, Ph.D., a distinguished scientist at the British Columbia Cancer Research Centre.

    I have heard this before-sugar feeds cancer:

    When asked to speculate on the biological mechanism, Krystal said that tumor cells, unlike normal cells, need significantly more glucose to grow and thrive. Restricting carbohydrate intake can significantly limit blood glucose and insulin, a hormone that has been shown in many independent studies to promote tumor growth in both humans and mice.

    It should come as no surprise that cancer is nutrition-related.

    It is right. I think what we eat effects on us because it is the nutritious source nourishing our body. Thus as Islander said that there are no surprise that cancer is nutrion-related. There are also some specific foods confirmed to help against cancer by many researches. They can conclude brazil nuts, dragon fruits, and wheat germ.
    There are some articles said about that:

    https://wikihomenutrition.com/wheat-germ-health-benefits/
    I usually choose them for my meals to keep me and my family away from cancer.

    Broccoli is another vegetable that is said to have cancer-prevention qualities.
