    Cancer is a viral disease. Virus destroys mainly end cells (matured cells in Q
    compartment), to which the organism responds with chronic inflammation and
    increased proliferation to restore the organ and clean the debris. In this
    chronic inflammation tumor may emerge. When stem cells are hit, the entire
    Tissue Proliferation Unit disappears, to which the organism responds with
    dysplasia, carcinoma in situ, carcinoma, etc... According to the hypothesis of
    professor Zajicek MD, tumor protects against cachexia (muscle loss, wasting
    manifested as fatigue and weight loss). Every cure, which silences the disease
    driver, namely virus, cures cancer. Muscle loss is seen in all cancer types.
    Cancer is one disease. Example: Fever is a defensive mechanism. Plus two
    degrees protects while plus five kills. As long as tumor does not block any
    vital function or causes pain, it should be left untreated. Patient should keep
    her tumor as much as possible. Some people find alternative treatments, like
    Ann Vigmor diet, very helpful. With a treatment strategy of tumor dormancy and
    with host resistance to virus , only minimal doses of medication may be
    required. Tumor dormancy is a state:when tumor shrinks or stop growing. In any
    case patient feels healthy.

    A lot of this has been debunked. O3 is debunked. So is antioxidants. So is fish oil. It’s bs. Most of what she says is good. But.

    Difficult to eat plant based foods when you have diarrhea every day. I cannot tolerate fat and I have iron deficiency anemia. This hints aren't helpful. I exercise before I eat because any food will trigger diarrhea.

      I have bad anemia too and have diarrhea at least once everyday even though I take 2 iron pills every day. I am taking Sandostatin LAR 30 mg every 28 days. It helps with the bad diarrhea.

    Nutrition & cancer talks, like this one do not offer much detail, and then these nutritionists say things like "try not to drink too much alcohol or too much added process sugar and meats".... Really? How about 2 things to never touch is SUGAR and ALCOHOL. Just Pathetic. This video could have been 4 minutes btw... Suggest you start at 9:00 or 10:00 minutes.
