I'm not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but feel this is in line with our issues here at CD and GF (gluten being our common theme; gluten being a carb, gluten being a cause of malabsorption of vitamins. One could also think about someone with candida issues - a yeast, and another way to have "leaky gut".
B and D vitamin deficiencies are indicated in cancers of the breast, colon and prostate. TODAY'S live stream is about cancer and they talk about the cancer carb fungus connection. I just thought it was interesting and wondered your experiences or what you thought about it.
If you've got the time, this might be of interest to you. This site is new to me. I have an acquaintance who watches his show locally. He was at a book signing at a local health food store, but I was only vaguely aware of him.
The show is: Know the Cause (www.knowthecause.com
Get to know who Doug Kaufman is here: www.know-the-cause.com/Books/WhatMakesBrea
BTW, Fran Drescher has a website called www.cancerschmancer.org
... she had uterine cancer. I'm gonna check out if she has any links re: diet.
Quote from Fran's site (not very aggressive diet treatment IMHO):
-Eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
-Eat more whole grain cereals and breads instead of over-processed grains and sugars. (Carbs turn to sugar????)
-Cut out fat, sugar, alcohol, and salt. (This one is common.)
-Limit consumption of red meats, especially those with high fat. (I never understand this one. Anyone else care to explain?)
-Choose foods that help maintain a healthy weight. During cancer treatment, some foods may be difficult to digest. As a result, a woman may need to change her diet to include high-calorie and high-protein foods, such as milk and cheese.
She does talk about tests/testing not covered by insurance which she thinks are worth investing personal funds into because there's no cure for cancer -- but there is treatment if caught in "STAGE 1" you have often 95% recovery for 5 years!!! Just a reminder to be proactive if you can. :)

KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB!
One person's food is another person's poison.
