“An apple a day keeps the . . . “ You know the rest of that sentence . . . or do you? Integrative cancer specialist Dr. Donald Abrams speaks to cancer survivors in “Fighting Cancer In The Kitchen,” saying that “After treatment, cancer survivors should follow the recommendations for cancer prevention.”
In fact, he advocates that the whole family get on board with these diet and nutritional changes, making cooking and food preparation that much easier, a strategy often adopted by heart attack patients.
Abrams’ messages are clear: “It is also important to limit consuming red meats and to avoid processed meats entirely. Research has shown that there is a direct correlation between consuming increasing amounts of red meat and colon cancer. Beef has also been associated with pancreatic cancer. In their natural environment cows eat grass.
Most cows today are primarily corn-fed. The result is that a cow that predominantly eats corn will in turn produce fat that is high in omega-6 fatty acids, those that promote inflammation and platelet aggregation.”
