The ideal internal environment for the growth of cancer cells results from a diet high in carbohydrates and protein. Dietary carbohydrates provide unwanted invaders plenty of fuel for growth, while proteins provide the building blocks needed for production of new cancer cells. Ironically, this type of diet is precisely what the majority of Americans eat on a daily basis. Is it any wonder why cancer impacts more than 40 percent of the nation’s population (1) and is the second most common cause of death (2)? Doesn’t it logically follow that a diet which restricts cancer cells’ access to the fuel they need can halt the growth of virtually any type of cancer? More and more experts believe so, and a growing body of evidence exists to support this conclusion (3).
