“When it comes to one’s lifetime risk of cancer, healthy diet and lifestyle choices can make all the difference.”


~ Susan Silberstein, Ph.D., founder and president of the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education


tary based on Sackman’s book, Rethink- ing Cancer: Non-Traditional Approaches to the Theories, Treatments and Preven- tion of Cancer.


From decades of findings by international clinicians, FACT edu- cates practitioners and patients to view chronic degenerative diseases as systematic malfunctions caused by breakdowns in the balance of body chemistry that are subject to bio-repair. However manifested, they are viewed as correctable and controllable via an individualized program that includes a balanced diet of whole, unprocessed, organic foods—spurred by Gerson therapy that floods the body with organically grown nutrients—supple- mentation and detoxification. Other key measures involve body temperature therapy, cellular and stem cell therapies and the use of botanicals.


“Nutrients in food directly impact the mechanisms by which cancer cells grow and spread,” explains Block. “They also indirectly impact cancer by changing the surrounding biochemical conditions that either promote or inhibit the progression of malignant disease. This is why targeting only tumors is not enough to quash cancer. Conventional cancer therapies almost inevitably leave behind at least a small number of ma- lignant cells. Your internal biochemical terrain plays an integral role in deter- mining whether a tumor will regain a foothold after treatment, metastasize to distant sites or stay where it is without posing a threat.”


Block notes that a healthy bio- chemistry can help prevent unpleasant and possibly life-threatening, complica- tions. An anti-cancer biochemical ter- rain will even boost a patient’s overall quality of life. At the Block Center, detailed assessments identify disrup- tions in six defining features of patients’ biochemical terrain—oxidation, inflam- mation, immunity, blood coagulation, glycemia and stress chemistry. Cancer thrives on terrain disruptions, which also can impair treatment.


Focus on High-Impact Foods Kathy Bero, founder of NuGenesis Inc., in Stone Bank, Wisconsin, asks, “How


many other lives could be saved if doc- tors prescribed a diet primarily focused on plant-based, angiogenic-inhibiting foods for all cancer patients?” Angiogenesis is the development of new blood vessels. Cancer turns the body against itself by hijacking the an- giogenesis process and keeping it perma- nently activated, ensuring that cancerous cells receive a dedicated, uninterrupted blood supply. “To effectively prevent cancer, inflammation and angiogenesis need to be controlled before a tumor can get a foothold,” advises Bero. Bero has personally beaten back two unrelated aggressive forms of cancer and credits the angiogenic- inhibiting foods in clinical research at the Medical College of Wisconsin, in Milwaukee, and the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha. Examples include green tea, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, apples, grape- fruit, lemons, tomatoes, cinnamon, kale, grape seed oil and pomegranate. “These foods also played a signifi- cant role in strengthening my immune system and restoring my overall health, which was radically affected by many rounds of chemotherapy and radiation,” remarks Bero.


Boost Recuperative Powers Patrick Quillin, Ph.D., a former vice president of nutrition for a national network of cancer hospitals and author of The Wisdom and Healing Power of Whole Foods and Beating Cancer with Nutrition, recommends a triple threat. “Cancer requires a threefold treatment approach to create a synergistic re- sponse. Teaming up to reduce the tumor burden without harming the patient, re-regulate the cancer to normal healthy tissue and nourish the patient’s recuper- ative powers is far better than any one approach,” says Quillin.


He maintains that restrained medi- cal interventions, appropriate nutrition
