7 Cancer-Preventing Changes to Make to Your Diet Right Now

Popped popcorn in a microwave

Yeah, yeah, we know what you’re thinking: everything causes cancer these days. Unfortunately, some offenders are worse than others. Natural On gives us Cancer-Causing Foods to Avoid and their replacements. We’ve made some modifications below, but implement the steps in either of these lists to lower your risk of contracting all sorts of cancer.

  1. Replace Diet Foods with Whole Foods. Diet foods, including frozen foods, or prepackaged foods labeled as “diet” or “low fat”, including diet sodas, generally contain an artificial sweetener called aspartame. Aspartame causes many diseases and illnesses, including cancer. To lose weight and stay in shape, eat fresh, organic, raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
  2. Replace Microwave Popped Corn with the Real Thing. Microwaved popcorn contains a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid ( PFOA), which is a known carcinogen. When you heat it up, you evaporate the chemical, leaving a pleasant dusting over every fluffy white bite.
  3. Replace Canned Tomatoes with Fresh Ones. Tomatoes are exceptionally dangerous due to their high acidity, which seems to cause BPA to leach from the lining of the can into the tomatoes themselves. The level of BPA can be so high in fact; you should seriously consider not feeding them to children. Due to FDA laws, there are no standards for labeling BPA so simply because a can does not say it has it does not mean that it does not contain BPA. Be safe and avoid cans.
  4. Replace Processed Meat with Wild Fish. The Dherbs Philosophy comes out strongly against meat of all kinds. Vegetables are just too important and when you load up on meat, you get full and you skip the veggies — which, again are just too important. That being said, we also don’t want you to get cancer. So if you absolutely must eat meat to have a decent life and not hate yourself, switch to fish, particularly wild fish. See, even farmed fish is bad for you. For example, farmed salmon is given a chemical for it to take on that famous red color because their domestic diet of chicken litter doesn’t create that deep red color naturally. Farm grown fish contains all sorts of additives and disgustingness. Avoid it. Really.
  5. Replace Store Bought Potato Chips with Homemade Ones. Potato chips have artificial flavors, numerous preservatives, and colors as well, which is something else your body doesn’t need.  Potato chips are fried in high temperatures to make them crispy but this also causes them to make a material called acrylamide, a known carcinogen that is also found in cigarettes.
  6. Replace Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils with Olive Oil. Hydrogenated oils are used to preserve processed foods and keep them looking appealing for a long as possible. Hydrogenated oils influence our cell membranes’ structure and flexibility, however, which is linked to cancer. Avoid these unhealthy concoctions and stick to Olive Oil or — even better — coconut oil.
  7. Replace Artificial Sweeteners with Stevia. In order to proliferate, cancer cells seem to prefer feeding on fructose-rich sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS); the reason is that HFCS is being metabolized by cancer cells most quickly and easily. Now it is clear why high-fructose corn syrup is considered the worst offender. And since cakes, pies, cookies, sodas, juices, sauces, cereals, and many other extremely popular, mostly processed, food items are loaded with refined sugars and HFCS in particular, this helps explain why cancer rates are on the rise these days. If you are looking for a low calorie option, try Stevia. This is from the leaves of a plant grown in South America. The white (processed) stuff is generally sold everywhere, but we recommend you stick to the raw version for even more nutritional goodness.

    Q: I was diagnosed with breast cancer about 18 months ago and I've been treating the tumor wholistically with no chemo or radiation. The tumor has gradually gotten smaller but I'm concerned that the progress could be improved if my diet was better. I get conflicting information about eating fruits while trying to maintain a high alkaline diet. Should people healing cancer eat fruit?

    A:

    Fruits are predominantly alkaline but most warnings about fruit while having cancer stems from the sugars in fruit which cancer can thrive in which is why many healers recommend vegetables instead of fruits. All live foods are good for you when there is cancer because live foods have enzymes.

    Q: I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer - I was advised that I should receive a therapy called HIUF High Intensity Ultrasound Frequency - There is a company in Germany that uses this treatment for Prostate Cancer - They have a 98.0% success rate with their method...Have you ever heard of such a treatment. - The one thing that interested me is that it is not chemo or radiation... There is another one called Proton Therapy... What do you know about these treatments?

    A:

    These therapies are new and better/safer than chemo and radiation but remember, no therapy can undo bad diet, unhealthy lifestyle, and unhealthy/negative thinking. If you undergo the therapies, don't forget that disease conveys a message to you to change your life to the better. You did something to harm your prostate and no therapy can undo this fact! We have an article "MALE PROSTATE HEALTH" you may find interesting. Herbally, you'd fare well from the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE.

    Q: The first time I had cancer it was uterine cancer where they did a hysterectomy. Now she has cancer in her liver, kidneys, on her stomach lining and spine. I am very concerned with my health so you may be correct. However, how do I deal with the sores that have manifested already? I am starting to meditate more to help me deal with my fears and emotions. What do you recommend?

    A:

    Purchase our NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL E-Book that helps you work on your mind, thoughts, and emotions - the root of healing! Read the article "SEA SALT SOAKS" and begin doing those. I would suggest you perform the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. Your body is telling you that you need to deal with past sexual hang-ups or look more into your sexuality and be at peace with yourself. You may want to consider a consultation as well!

    Q: I was reading about a famous black author who died of brain cancer and I wanted to know what does it mean on a metaphysical level? Cancer of the brain, breast, colon, mouth. What does this signify other than extreme toxicity? What does poor circulation mean metaphysically speaking? Do you think there is a link between hair dyes, hair relaxers (burners) and brain cancer and lupus among black females. This is "off the cuff" but I hate seeing black females with straightened hair and hair coloring. I really hate it. I hate long claws (fake fingernails).

    A:

    Metaphysically, cancer denotes a feeling being eaten up (on the inside) by some emotion or emotions, always negative emotions. Mouth cancer - the person refused to speak out their hurt, anger, pain, etc. Breast cancer - the female failed to get things off of her chest or neglected caring for herself (nurturing herself, her wounds and pains, etc.). Colon cancer - the person couldn't stomach things but failed to release what was emotionally eating away at them.

    Metaphysically speaking, poor circulation means your "life flow" is stagnant due to the burdens of life "weighing you down." Most people with poor circulation have weight issues. In addition they may be "poor" and their cash flow does not "circulate" the way they'd would like and so worries about bills and other financial responsibility makes them eat away their worries whereby they gain weight and hamper their bodily circulation.

    And yes, chemicals in hair products (dyes, conditioners, relaxers) are playing a role in certain cancers of the head (i.e. brain cancer).

    Q: I have incorporated fish into my diet because I have been craving. Is moderation okay.... meaning my fruits for breakfast a regular lunch with salad and a salad for dinner okay to pretty much moderate other foods? It is challenging for me to become a vegan. Do you have any suggestions on how to still eat healthy to maintain an alkalized body with certain foods with moderation that are not raw? I still drink my green veggies at least twice a day. I am praying that my results will be negative.

    A:

    FISH IN MODERATION IS OKAY FOR YOU. TO MAINTAIN ALKALINITY, DESPITE THE ACID-FORMING THINGS YOU EAT, JUST MAKE SURE TO EAT AS MANY GREEN FOODS AS POSSIBLE. YOU CAN ALSO TAKE 6 CAPSULES OF ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD TOO! YOU’RE DOING GOOD SO KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS POSITIVE AND ON YOUR DESIRES.

    Q: Hi it's me again. I just read what you said about meat and what I don't understand is if meat was not good for us why in the Bible people eat Lamb. How would you explain back in the Bible times during Abraham and Moses when they use to offer sacrifice and kill a lamb were they cruel and going against God. And those who couldn't afford animals like Lamb would use bird eggs. In the book of Exodus chp. 12: 11,21,27,43,48 and Lev. 23:5 and 12:3, Deut. 16:7and Exodus 34:25 when the death Angel was passing and God told them to kill a Lamb and put the blood on the door post and gave the command for them to roast it. How would you explain that because up until this day the Jews still eat Lamb. Even fish, it was fish that God used to feed the 5000 people. Are you saying I can't eat fish at all. I would like to know some of the things you eat in the place of meat , fish and chicken. I really want to change my eating habit.

    A:

    All meat consumption came AFTER the Fall of Man (Genesis Chapter 6). Man can eat meat while in a degenerate state but to return back to Eden he/she must go back to plant foods. Also, meat today is greatly TAINTED unlike meat 4,000 - 6,000 years ago! It's not the same. Jews are not the healthiest people, by the way! Health conscious people are!

    Q: I am a breast cancer survivor, before cancer I was healthy, active, my mind was clear, I never second guessed myself, my weight was good. Now I am overweight, my mind runs constantly, I get getters, I can't remember things, I can't sleep or I'm tired. My hair want grow back, I can't lose weight, and my visit keep changing. I spend more money at the doctors' than I can afford. I developed lymphademia on my right side, I can't find the glove and sleeve I need for relief. My husband and I was stationed overseas when I developed BC. We've relocated to Atlanta and I heard your advertisement on 9.75. I am open to suggestions. Thank you for your time. God Bless

    Q: My sister was diagnosis with breast cancer and also bones cancer. After chemotherapy and radiation treatment she is telling me she feels very tired, she lives in Argentina how can I help her with your advice, I did not know about your herbs when she became sick, I mentioned dherbs to her and she ask me to help.

    A:

    She needs to detoxify her body. She's now dealing with toxicity from chemotherapy and radiation on top of cancerous cells so now she must heal twice: from the drugs/radiation and the cancer. I would have her start on the FULL BODY DETOX; have her drink DETOX TEA and RAINFOREST TONIC TEA for starters. The radiation and chemotherapy are harming her. Her diet should be all raw foods and herbs.

    Q: To make a long story short, my mother just found out that the 'cancer' her doctors had been treating her for the past 8 yrs was misdiagnosed. Her new Doctor informed her she's HIV positive and all the drugs; radiation/chemo treatments have only weakened her body. This information is quite distressing. My mother is now taking 15 pills a day and is essentially confined to home and bed. My mother will be 68 yrs old at the end of this month. Please advise what you would recommend she takes that will help her feel better and help get the toxic waste out of her body that these pill are helping to create. Thanks for any info regarding this matter.

    A:

    Put her on the FULL BODY DETOX. After the detox, have her take ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD capsules (5 capsules) 5-6 times a day and drink RAINFOREST TONIC TEA. She must eat only raw foods. Please read our â€CANCER: Causes and Remedies†article.

    Q: I just stumbled on your website this evening, and after wondering around I have become very impressed!! WOW!! What a great place with awesome knowledge! I was told from a MRI last Aug, that I have a possible inverted papilloma tumor behind my left eye. I went in because my eye was pushed out, and had proptosis. I was also sick with vertigo, and I had found a tumor in my stomach and my leg. I have lost all my family to cancer, and thier western treatments! So hearing OU medical center, the Mayo Clinic etc, tell me I need chemo, radiation, and surgery. I run the other way!! Since last August, I have become my own doctor. I eat whole foods only, no meat! Drink juice, green drinks, and take all kinds of herbs. Its too much to tell! HA! I have had awesome results, tumor in stomach is gone, and now this week leg one is gone too! The one in my frontal sinus cavity seems like it is pretty stubborn, I have spent tons of $$$ searching for a holistic doctor to help, I recently drove 1300 miles, and got the same answer, I guess this is a type of (benign cancer, maybe) that has no reserch or results in holistic meds. Most places refer me to surgery, then want me to come back and start a protocol. My tumor is in a dangerous place, but I went through the swelling in the begining when I was detoxing and on apricot seeds. I guess my question is, do you know of anything that may help? I seem to have trouble keeping my Ph above even 6.5 or so, I eat mostly alkalizing foods, I think maybe I will order your Candida Buster? I have no allergies anymore, and tons of energy!! Any suggestions you may have will be trully appreciated!

    A:

    I wouldn't recommend "Candida Buster." I would recommend the Full Body Detox, for starters. After the FBD, I would recommend that you take Sinus Formula, and Tumor Buster. It is really great hearing about all of your successes in healing. Very inspirational. Just keep things moving, staying positive, Beloved! Keep doing your fantastic dietary regimen as well.

    Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.

    A:

    Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."

    Q: I've made a lifestyle change about 8 months ago. I excluded all dairy, wheat, grains, gluten, legumes, sugar, oils (except olive oil). I still eat minimum amount of meat (chicken, fish) maybe 2 -3 times/wk. I'm slowly trying to eliminate meat totally as I only use to make my meals more filling. My plan is to do Ozone Therapy midway through the detox program, which also rid the body of toxins.

    A:

    Ozone therapy is beneficial!

    Q: My question is regarding fibroids. I have been told I have had fibroids about the size of someone 3 months pregnant. I have been told there are two in clusters. They gave me the diameters, but I don't have that information at this time. My OB/GYN has told me he believes it is causing me to be slightly anemic. I have been trying some remedies on my own like more exercise and a change in diet. My primary physician does not recommend surgery she has me taking iron ferrous sulfate supplements twice per day to help with my iron count. It seems to be helping. The only problem I have with taking the iron supplements is that it sometimes causes constipation and I am normally pretty regular. I usually eliminate 2 times per day sometimes 3. My OB/GYN on the other hand keeps pushing for me to having surgery.& amp; nbsp; They had me take BC pills, however I took myself off of them because they made me sick. I took them only for 6 months. I'm 45 and have never taken BC pills ever and I don't want to start now. I've never been pregnant. I flow heavy on my 2nd and 3rd day heavy and after that it is manageable. My cycle has improved however I want to reduce the flow on those days if possible and of course dissolve the fibroid if at all possible. Doctors tell me they won't go away unless removed. I used to be on my cycle for 7 days and 4 of those days were heavy. Now I'm normally on for 4 days and only the 2nd and 3rd day are heavy. I know that as I reach menopause they may shrink in size, however I'm still aways off from that. I eat no red meat however I do eat fish and poultry. I eat a pretty good balance of vegetables and fruits, mostly raw and steamed. I drink lactaid milk. I don't eat much dairy except cheese and eggs occasionally. I do have a weakness, I love potato chips. I know this is not good. I can feel the fibroid get bigger when I eat them. When I stop for a period of time it decreases in size. At least I feel like it does. I'm not a sugar craver, however during the week before my cycle I'll crave sweets. I usually resist. I feel it's my diet that has caused the fibroids as well as every female in my family has had a hysterectomy due to fibroids. I think it is also hereditary as well. Whatever the case I'd like to know what regimen can you put me on that will help me? The goal is to reduce or dissolve the size of the fibroid so it is not affecting my iron level. I'm also starting to see my abdomen get bigger when I've always had a flat stomach. Perhaps this is me just getting older, however I think it's the fibroids. Constant low levels over time can't be good. I hope I have provided you enough information to give me your recommendation. If not please feel free to e-mail me for any additional information you need. I'm looking for a natural cure. Outside of this condition I'm in very good health. No problem with weight, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. I'm pretty athletic and active as well. Please advise. I look forward to your recommendation.

    A:

    I remember just recently e-mailing you on this inquiry. Your diet MUST CHANGE! Consider full fledged RAW FOODS and VEGAN diet during your healing transition. Lactaid milk is HORRIBLE for you. Did you read our â€FIBROID TUMORS†article?????? You need to keep on performing FULL BODY DETOX followed by Fibroid Buster kit and regimen, back to back! Continuously! Detoxing must become a lifestyle for you! For iron, consider Dherbs.Com IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA and MOON CYCLE FORMULA. Also, consider a telephone consultation because time is greatly limited in writing back in response to inquiries. There is much healing for you, Beloved!
