Cancer is not just a single disease but a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth and is currently categorized among the leading fatal diseases of the world. The world census be the witness, in the year 2012 14.1 million fresh reports of cancer were recorded on global level excluding skin cancer.
The rate at which cancer is growing among humans has reached a tremendous stage and in U.S alone 1 among 2 men and 1 among 3 women are set to develop cancer at some stage of life. With the onset of year 2050, it is alleged that number of cancer cases will become two time more than that of now. No matter how horrifying and mentally disturbing this news seems to be, if we have a hope there is always a way out, we just have to find it.
As of now, the best way out is to start eating more unprocessed vegetarian foods of plant origin and cutting low on non vegetarian eatables.
A series of experiments were conducted by the scientists in the year 2005 and it was clearly confirmed that as compared to the individuals following Standard American Diet Plan, the blood of individuals relying on unprocessed plant foods was 8 times more effective in combat against cancer cells.
Collective Revolution reports that two sets of individuals following opposing diet plans for a year were taken into account and their blood samples were taken in a petri dish along with cancer cells in a respective manner and sole motive thereof was to determine which type of diet makes our blood more strongly defensive against prostate cancer. The experimental study thus reveals:
“Experimental group patients were prescribed an intensive lifestyle program that included a vegan diet supplemented with soy (1 daily serving of tofu plus 58 gm of a fortified soy protein powdered beverage), fish oil (3 gm daily), vitamin E (400 IU daily), selenium (200 mcg daily) and vitamin C (2 gm daily), moderate aerobic exercise (walking 30 minutes 6 days weekly), stress management techniques (gentle yoga based stretching, breathing, meditation, imagery and progressive relaxation for a total of 60 minutes daily) and participation in a 1-hour support group once weekly to enhance adherence to the intervention.10 The diet was predominantly fruits, vegetables, whole grains (complex carbohydrates), legumes and soy products, low in simple carbohydrates and with approximately 10% of calories from fat.11 The diet is intensive but palatable and practical. In earlier studies most patients were able to adhere to this diet for at least 5 years”.
The participants of this study who adhered to plant based unprocessed fools submitted that besides following a vegan diet plan, they were also taking part in different constructive activities which includes joining a stress management class, taking part in yoga and other such activities. It clearly implies that positive changes in once lifestyle could also be an accelerating push towards healthy and thus cancer free life.
Similar study was carried upon the patients suffering from breast cancer and only after two weeks of sticking to plant based foods and light exercise, the results were miraculous. In this research, the women suffering from breast cancer were put on plant based diet along with light exercise and blood samples were taken before the onset of this program.
After 14 days of anticipation, the results were brilliant as the blood of these women had became tremendously more powerful against cancer cells. In order to determine the ratio of effectiveness involved in the findings solely due to physical activities, separate research was conducted and it concluded that physical activities also have an essential part to play but eating unprocessed plant foods is twice more effective than physical activities alone.
Also in addition to all these miraculous results, changing lifestyle in this way also awards you with freebies like reduction in carbon output and increase in mortality rate of animals.
