Nikolaj, first and foremost let me tell you how sorry I am to hear your father has the lung cancer. By now you should be well aware of the fact that
a person does NOT have to smoke to get lung cancer. All they have to do is spend an inordinate amount of time with people who DO SMOKE. For example,
at a pub, at work, at a sports event etc. It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that second hand smoke is actually worse than the ingested
smoke by the smoker.
You are getting some information from the horse's mouth now. I was told I had stage IV squamous cell carcinoma of the throat 5 years, 4months and 6
days ago. I have NEVER SMOKED, NEVER DRANK but I was a rascal of sorts. I ended up with head and neck cancer of a sort that is rapidly becoming more
prevalent than cancer of smoking and drinking. If you want to read my whole story you can read it at www.gnoled.blogspot.com.
I am telling you this because I have overcome the cancer. I took the regular radiation and chemical treatments. My other option was to die within a
year. Sounded logical to me. So, I agreed to take it. While taking it I researched all I could on throat cancer. I found out that since I never
smoked or drank, the only way I could have gotten it was from an HPV. This proved to be the case. However, the radiation nearly killed me and the
chemo just about put the nails in the lid. Both are extremely detrimental to the human body. Chemo is a poison. THey mix it up, according to your
weight and type of cancer, to be just two shakes short of being a deadly mix. Of course you end up with times when you wish it would go on and kill
At three years, I said to them, no more. I was going home and either die from stubborness or survive from it. I obviously survived it. The end
result was, I lost my voice (laryngectomy) and sense of taste and smell. (Radiation) My neck is a piece of wood. I am unable to eat anything.
Everything I ingest is with a feed tube through my stomach. Beats a stick in the eye!
I give the credit of my being here now to my wife who, saw that my diet (although liquid at all times) was proper and puree'd! I have no idea what
she liquified but I know it was all stuff she researched to have cancer fighting capabilities. (Augmented with Ensure) I wish I could tell you your
father coould be cleared of his conditions. I can't and won't but I can tell you his chances could be improved if you get the right foods into him.
If he is able to chew and swallow, then he is way ahead of me on that count. Google the cancer fighting foods and make them available for him. Lots
of vegetables and fruits and nuts. Blueberries are a biggy.
Give it a try because it is well worth it. Let us know, via ATS, how it goes. PLLO, bob
