I don't think this needs to be pursued under a newcomer's post.  I honestly don't see what a discussion of sugars and fungi have to do with the understanding of a brca pathology report or the differences between a sentinel node biopsy and an axillary node dissection, which was what the "advice needed" concerned.  I don't mind you posting the information, but our newcomers here are reeling from a cancer diagnosis.  The advice they usually need is more immediate than dietary changes.  Many cancer survivors do choose to change their diets and lifestyles.  Others tend to enjoy every moment of every day, and if that means eating chocolate cake, then so be it. 
Our newcomers are scared.  They are facing a life-threatening disease, and one there is no cure for.  There are plenty of cancer survivors out there who change their diets and lifestyles and die.  There are plenty more who don't change a thing and live.  Honestly, Kim, as far as cancer goes, I think it's a crapshoot, and the odds are about even.  And I think that's about what the research supports as well.
I'm glad you've found something that relieves your ulcerative colitis. I know that is a miserable disease.  My beloved cocker spaniel had it, and the only thing that seemed to offer her relief was a diet of rice and cottage cheese, I'm sure both of which harbor fungi.  But it worked for her, and I would never dare to go to a support board for ulcerative colitis and suggest that people there do that, especially someone who is just learning how to deal with the disease.  My point is, there is a big difference between ulcerative colitis and breast cancer, just as there is a big difference between dogs and people. 
I am not a "knowitall," by any means.  But I daresay that, after 12 years of living with my breast cancer and over 40 years of losing family and friends to cancer, I am a "knowalittlebitaboutit."
