What You Can Eat to Defeat Cancer
Dr. Oz and I recently spoke about important new research that is showing that how you select, prepare and consume foods can be a powerful weapon for preventing cancer. The reason for this lies in our capillaries, the thousands of tiny blood vessels present in almost every square millimeter of our bodies.

The growth of new capillary blood vessels is called angiogenesis, a vital process for reproduction and healing. Cancer turns the body against itself by hijacking the angiogenesis process. Just as healthy tissues require oxygen and nutrients, malignant tumors need a blood supply to fuel their growth. But, unlike normal tissues, cancer keeps angiogenesis permanently switched on to ensure that it has a dedicated, uninterrupted blood supply.
 
5 Foods That Starve Cancer
Disturbing new research suggests that microscopic cancer, small cancer cells that can only been seen under a microscope, is widely prevalent. A recent study of women in their 40s indicated that 40% of them had microscopic breast cancer. Even more shocking, almost 100% of people in their 70s will have microscopic cancer in their thyroid glands.

A microscopic tumor can grow up to 16,000 times its original size in as little as 2 weeks. But new groundbreaking research from The Angiogenesis Foundation proposes that you can stop cancer before it begins to grow. This new preventive approach is called anti-angiogenesis. To learn more about anti-angiogenesis and the groundbreaking research at The Angiogenesis Foundation, click here. Anti-angiogenesis encourages that, by changing the way you eat, you can change your “internal environment,” thereby depriving cancer cells the opportunity to grow and multiply.

Well Steve...there goes my theory on the the "Secret Sauce" in the Big Mac. What was I thinking...<grin>
You are beating back cancer, so hold your head up with dignity

Cooked tomatoes.  We have a Bingo, people.  NE Irish loves 'em, and the flounder is okay with him too.  Thank you for the posting, StevenD.  You'd mentioned this link on another thread.

Its interesting but makes sense that cooked tomatoes are better then raw one.

On a similar note - I've read many things about almonds being good for you..But the other day I read that really really chewing them is even better.

LES - at least the Big Mac is still good for "quality of life."  If ya gonna die - die happy idea

Interesting post.
It begs the question, can you cook tomatoes and eat them cold, later in say, a sandwich
or do they need to be hot?

I caught the show on TV and it was interesting.

If there are foods to eat that starve the cancer, is there any research on foods to avoid because they promote angiogenesis?

I know that Dr. Walsh's book states that red meat and dairy feed cancer cell growth.

I think that I'll go out and get a pound of shrimp and cocktail sauce. Or perhaps I should put the cocktail sauce on flounder (yuk).

Steve,

There was a fairly lengthy posting several days ago about foods that I see you were not in...the title of the thread was "PSA test strategy" (http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&p=2&m=1894904), but the discussion was mostly about foods.

There was a bit of obnoxious-ness in that thread, but if you see past that there was also some good information.  I also posted a number of helpful links to sites listing foods good and bad for PC...based on a general convergence of data, not on any indisputable double-blind 20-year study.  Check out that thread...
 
I made the comment there, which I will make again:  It seemed to me that no one in the world would more motivated to seek out an anti-cancer regimen than a cancer survivor who wants to be sure he remains a survivor.

This is a very timely post for me. I'm the guy who started the thread Casey mentioned about the effects of food on PSA. For the last 10 days or so I have been consuming 2 - 3 bowls of homemade tomato sauce and veggies. Oatmeal with nuts for breakfast. No sweets, no beer, no fun in the bedroom, no cheating on the test. The test is tomorrow (Wednesday) so in a week I should know if the heathful diet had the effect of driving my PSA down into the ground where it belongs. Btw, the sauce recipe calls for one garlic but we throw in 10 - 12 garlics! Not cloves.
Age: 63
Gleason grade: 3+4=7, present in both lobes, pT2c NX MX
Robotic RP: Sept. 15th, 2009
PSA's: .04, .03, .02, .05 (darn)
ED: Improvement slow but there are positive signs. No incontinent issues.
Surgery: Dr. Jim Hu. Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's, Boston

If we die from the diet, does that count as defeating the cancer ?

Just kidding of course !

Here is a link to a good presentation on nutrition and prostate cancer from UCSF.

http://urology.ucsf.edu/patientGuides/flash/PCaNutrition_154315.html  This is very comprehensive.

here is a 64 page report summarizing all the research in this area.

Red Nighthawk says with cooking, "the sauce recipe calls for one garlic but we throw in 10 - 12 garlics! Not cloves." And he lists among things he's doing without, "no sex in the bedroom." Well, duh! 12 garlics! I imagine Mrs, Red Nighthawk is checked in at a Motel 8. Or a Four Seasons. Anywhere but near those 12 garlics.

The radiation oncologist at Emory who is following me now and watching the psa told me to eat 2 teaspoons of tomato paste each day, it is more concentrated and contains a lot of the lycopene since it is concentrated.  Doesn't tasted that well, maybe I need to put some of that garlic in it smhair
