The ideal internal environment for the growth of cancer cells results from a diet high in carbohydrates and protein to provide these unwanted invaders plenty of fuel along with the building blocks needed for the production of new 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).
