    This diet cut the sugar source too. Proteins and SUGAR deficience may kill cancer cells indeed.

    The key word in this sentence unfortunatly is MAY!!!!! It MAY kill cancer cells!!

    Wouldn't you feel better knowing that you WILL kill cancer cells using Radiation/Chemo-therapy. In most cases of cancer time is of the essence. Though this diet MAY works- It also MAY give the cancer another several weeks to grow and spread , making it even harder you cure your disease. I was under the assumption that 4-5 weeks without treatment wouldn't be enough time for cancer to spread(and if it did it would be minimal). The fact was that in the course of 2 1/2 weeks of waiting for a surgical consult for the RPLND my AFP went from 3450 to 11500 making it impossible to have surgery. It took another 2 weeks before I was admitted back in the hospital to start salvage chemo. At this time my AFP was up to 22400 and the abdominal mass grew from 11cmx14cm to 23cmX34cm. I'm just trying to stress how aggressive some cancer can be and advise people to act immediatly and without hesitation to kill it as quickly and aggresivly as possible. Of course you hear of the few miracle success stories of this diet but,it's funny,how you don't hear any failure stories. I wonder why??? Perhaps they to waited a little to long!!!!! I'm just voicing my opionion-Please don't take it personal. There are many things in life you can discover by trail and error!!! I just don't think this is one of them!!! I wish you nothing but luck in killing this cancer--However you decide to do it!!!!!!!!

      This diet is not recomended aprioric to standard treatment. The medical treatment for TC is a success story and, therefore, the one MUST undergo standard treatment before all. In case of failure or only as prevention the Breuss diet may be considered.
      Stage III EC 85% + Sem 15%
      AFP=2.6; HCG=10, 20,28 and rising

      -subpleural lungs metastasis [bipulmonary lesions with diam <= 1cm]

        Personally, I am a believer in the "Woodbridge Chardonnay" diet. Oak-casks react with wine components to form topoisomerase II inhibitors to afford "wine-related ellagitannin derivatives that were much more potent than etoposide at inhibiting topoisomerase II-mediated unraveling of DNA strands in vitro. This finding suggests “potential antiproliferative activity and their potential use as new anticancer drugs,” the researchers note.

        And that's NO BULL. Full text here:

        This diet does not sound good to me. I'm surprised that there has not been more criticism. I'm sure it helps you to lose weight, and antioxidants are great and all of that, but to my knowledge, a cancer cell just needs blood and oxygen to keep going. Since your body is packed with proteins that are produced by your body, I'm not sure that not eating protein would help that much.

        Am I reading your post correctly that you are trying to do this instead of radiation and/or chemotherapy? I guess that if surveillance is an acceptable option for Stage IIA that you can do whatever you want, including the "dominos pizza diet" or the "big mac diet" as long as you follow up on the strict surveillance.
