A couple weeks ago I taught my seminar "Preventing Cancer Through Nutrition", and I just have to share this experience with you.
Near the end, when I quoted from The China Study, by T. Colin Campbell, PhD., a woman who had also been influenced by this book shared her story with us... Let's call her, "Tonya". Tonya told us how five years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and after much research into nutrition she opted out of chemo and other drugs. Of course, her doctors thought she was crazy.
But here's the deal: Today, five years later, Tonya is a living testimony of the power of diet to fight cancer. She is has been cancer-free ever since this turning point, and she looks amazing. Tonya chose a vegan, or plant-based diet, which is similar to what many other people turn to fight cancer: a macrobiotic diet.
My friend Meg Wolff has a story just like Tonya's - or perhaps even more extreme, and thus, all the more inspirational - and she knows many more people with similar stories. To be encouraged by Meg Wolff's amazing website, click here.
As I said in another recent nutrition seminar (quote me on this!): "The good news is that what we put in our bodies is so powerful. And the bad news is that what we put in our bodies is so powerful. But perhaps the best news is we have the power to CHOOSE what we put in our bodies. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise." (Okay, so maybe I added the last sentence just now!)
But really guys, let's stop being afraid of cancer. We have the resources to prevent it, just as Tonya, Meg and so many other people have demonstrated. Let's learn from their example.
