Diet and Cancer

Have you see the TED presentation by Dr. William Li who heads the Angiogenesis Foundation? It's entitled, "Can we eat to starve cancer?" Dr. Li said, “We’re treating cancer too late in the game, when it’s already established and, oftentimes, it’s already spread or metastasized. The obvious thing is to think about what we could remove from our diet. But I took a completely opposite approach and began asking: What could we be adding to our diet that could boost the body’s defense system? In other words, can we eat to starve cancer? Imagine that one medical advancement held the promise to conquer cancer, perhaps within your lifetime … the potential to also end more than 70 of life's most threatening conditions, affecting one billion people worldwide. This is the promise of angiogenesis, the first medical revolution of the 21st century." You might want to check this out. I’ll be adding a few more things to my diet!
