Did this grandfather, 78, really beat 'incurable' cancer just by changing his diet? Extraordinary story of the man who got 'all-clear' after swapping red meat and dairy products for 10 fruit and veg a day


www.dailymail.co.uk...



Doctors told Allan Taylor, 78, in April that his cancer couldn't be treated and had spread from his colon to his small intestine

In August the retired oil rig engineer from Middlesbrough got another letter - to say he was cancer-free

He puts the change down to his new diet, which he adopted after looking up 'colon cancer cures' on the internet


Last September he underwent an operation, during which a surgeon removed a nine-inch section of his colon, and he began a three-month course of chemotherapy.

But in April this year he was told the cancer had spread to small intestine.

Mr Taylor responded by tapping the words 'colon cancer cures' into an internet search engine.

He used the information, together with advice from his local health food store, to devise his new diet.




So the secret diet is....?

1. One teaspoon of powdered barley grass in hot water every morning and night
2. 10 portions of raw fruit and veg each day
3. Remove meat and dairy products completely from diet
4. Take herbal remedies: powdered grass, curry spices, apricot seeds and selenium tablets
5. VITAMIN C - 1000 MG

So here we see a healthy diet...something we should all take up to a certain degree. But what I notice most above all else is the Vitamin C.

Didn't pharma want to ban selling this vitamin OTC and make it prescribed instead? Again, the clues to beating cancer are everywhere. It's what the doctors won't tell you in the hospitals.

Though I may be skeptic about this, but I am also open minded about it as well. I used to be in a nursing program in hospitals and even though I was on the medical floor before, I never saw this sort of diet prescribed to patients. If we are to live a healthy life, why can't diet be available to hospital patients as well?

My guess is two fold:

1. The hospital budgets won't support this diet....would cost too much
2. The doctors & pharmaceutical giants are trying to make money off the chemotherapy treatments

What are your thoughts ATS? Conspiracy or FACT?

When I was about 10 years old my friend told me his mom said there was a cure for cancer, but they wont release it because they make so much money off chemo and charities... I am SO sick of these money greed[snip]! Where the hell is the love......

When there is a resistance in the energy field diseases arise eventually, in this case cancer. I believe one can cure cancer by first changing their thoughts and bringing harmony in their emotional field along with a good diet it is possible in my opinion.

I've heard of many cases like this personally and in the media, but still, more power to him for challenging what he was told was absolute, especially at the age of 78, when most people would just have accepted their fate, perhaps.

This is SUCH and important issue, so of course they will do all they can to cover it up. It's all about the money, as ever.

Through difficult times one needs to remain positive to bring in the environment necessary to a change in one's internal being. That is often the most difficult to change and maintain...so who knows if it really does work?

this article looks at the argument:

www.cancer.org...


Attitudes and Cancer
Emotions and feelings are an important part of coping with a cancer diagnosis.

...But there isn’t good evidence to support the idea that these interventions can reduce the risk of cancer, keep cancer from coming back (prolong remission), or help the person with cancer live longer. Still, things like imagery, hypnosis, or relaxation can be used to help reduce the distress that often comes with a cancer diagnosis.

Personality traits and cancer
In 2010, the largest and best-designed scientific study to date was published. It looked at nearly 60,000 people, who were followed over time for a minimum of 30 years. This careful study controlled for smoking, alcohol use, and other known cancer risk factors. The study showed no link between personality and overall cancer risk. There was also no link between personality traits and cancer survival.

Does it help to keep a positive attitude?

Many people want to believe that the power of the mind can control serious diseases. This is a comforting belief that can make a person feel safer from the risk of serious illness. If it were true, you could use your mind to stop the cancer from growing. But the down side of such beliefs is that when people with cancer don’t do well, they may blame themselves.



To learn more about attitude and survival, researchers looked at the emotional well-being of more than 1,000 patients with head and neck cancer to find out whether it affected survival. Over time, those who scored high on emotional well-being showed no differences in cancer growth or length of life when compared to those with low scores. Based on what we know now about how cancer starts and grows, there is no reason to believe that emotions can cause cancer or help it grow.

Can psychotherapy help people live longer?
...It seems clear that support groups can affect quality of life, but the available scientific evidence does not support the idea that support groups or other forms of mental health therapy can help people with cancer live longer.

Journalists like this should stop writing about health and start writing for E!

Here's a question:

What was his diet prior to his diagnosis? Which leads to... what other foods did he remove from his original diet?

A diet like the one described, if what he described was his exact diet, will lead to an extreme caloric deficit. Bioavailability of vegetables is much less when raw than when cooked, which means even less calories are available for absorption. It's tough for cancer to survive in a calorically restricted environment, especially if the availability of glucose is diminished (see Otto Warburg).

There's no real reason to believe that the removal of meat and dairy was responsible for the curing his cancer. Referring to the above, removing meat and dairy, both sources of fatty acids, would definitely remove the most energy dense part of his original diet, which would undoubtedly lead to a caloric deficit. So the observed effect is more likely due to a negative stimulus of caloric quantity than of meat and dairy.

Was this guy eating more vegetables or more fruits?

So many questions... and really poor journalism

My partner was given the 'all clear' medically after seven years of being diagnosed with cancer...
...we used a similar diet change.

We removed all environmental/domestic toxins, made sure she had all ninety essential nutrients every day and focused on foods that promote an alkaline pH and herbs/seed as mentioned in the OP.

Some diary can be useful though like Cottage Cheese and Yoghurt that are a good source of Sulphur that acts as a nutrient transport into cells. Particularly useful combined with flax seed oil to maintain cell health.

So really, what would your thoughts be on focusing on a diet that prevents the cancer in the first place? Common sense tells me yes, but not many people know the true importance of it.

The other thing to consider now is this:

How many vegetables and fruits are GMO these days, and if by eating them, what side effects are there on the human body? Can these GMOs create cancer as opposed to organic foods???

He probably did! The doctors and drug companies will convince you
that only a drug can cure a disease.

This is fabulous and I want to thank you for bringing it to light.

That's because the FDA won't allow a doctor to claim that anything other than a drug can cure a disease.

There are cultures were people never get cancer. The resources in their environment naturally maintain good health. We have to be more selective because our foods are mostly processed and processed foods tend to be more acidic.

Maintaining correct pH is the key. Cell communication decreases and pathogens thrive in more acidic conditions. Natural flora in our body systems can become lethal when conditions are more acidic.

The doctors will also provide "trial" drug samples for you to take home and see if you like them...if your condition improves with little side effects, they will prescribe the drug for you to buy instead of giving you non-drug alternatives.

Can you please provide evidence of which cultures?

I am unconvinced about GMO specifically...
...but I think we do have too high a consumption of grains...
...all of which have been breed or genetically altered to yeild high carbohydrate.

Our biology needs 60 essential minerals and most people don't even know what they are.
