"What you eat has no effect on cancer" This is what most people are told by their doctors and oncologists...
(100% WRONG!)Why do they insist on repeating such untruth? Because that is what they were taught. No amount of scientific proof or real-life examples will change their beliefs until it is announced as fact from the very top. This is why medical dogma is often years or decades behind the science in many fields.
Diet rapidly and reproducibly alters the human gut microbiome NATURE.COM
According to International Journal of Science Nature, a change in diet has a fast and dramatic effect on the gut microbiome, (which must surely have a significant effect in regard to health and the immune system) This could help explain why some people start to heal quickly after changing their diet, and even reverse their cancer.
Here's what they have found:"Long-term dietary intake influences the structure and activity of the trillions of microorganisms residing in the human gut1, 2, 3, 4, 5, but it remains unclear how rapidly and reproducibly the human gut microbiome responds to short-term macronutrient change.
Here we show that the short-term consumption of diets composed entirely of animal or plant products alters microbial community structure and overwhelms inter-individual differences in microbial gene expression. The animal-based diet increased the abundance of bile-tolerant microorganisms (Alistipes, Bilophila andBacteroides) and decreased the levels of Firmicutes that metabolize dietary plant polysaccharides (Roseburia, Eubacterium rectale and Ruminococcus bromii).
Microbial activity mirrored differences between herbivorous and carnivorous mammals2, reflecting trade-offs between carbohydrate and protein fermentation. Foodborne microbes from both diets transiently colonized the gut, including bacteria, fungi and even viruses.
Finally, increases in the abundance and activity of Bilophila wadsworthia on the animal-based diet support a link between dietary fat, bile acids and the outgrowth of microorganisms capable of triggering inflammatory bowel disease6. In concert, these results demonstrate that the gut microbiome can rapidly respond to altered diet, potentially facilitating the diversity of human dietary lifestyles".
What does this mean for your health?
A large percentage of our immune system resides in our gut. It follows that we can either create a pro disease environment, or a pro health environment.
This is especially important to understand if you are suffering from a major health crisis, - like cancer. And you can start the ball rolling to obtain new healing benefits within a very short period of time.
In an article entitled A New, Non-Invasive Method for Colorectal Cancer Screening, Ty Bollinger cites recent scientific studies that show how the gut microbiome of cancer victims can be abnormal and disease promoting, as you can read in the extract.
Recent studies are now pointing to the direct link between a lack of bacterial diversity in the colon and early detection of colorectal cancer. A June 2015 study in Genome Medicine titled Virulence Genes Are a Signature of the Microbiome in the Colorectal Tumor Microenvironment may rewrite how the medical community approaches colorectal cancer.
The study looked at normal colon tissue and compared it with colon tissue of individuals with colorectal tumors. According to the study’s findings, the colorectal tumor microbiome samples showed increases of “commensal and pathogenic bacterial taxa, including fusobacterium and providencia.” The study concluded that the increased abundance of bacterial taxa found significantly correlated with colorectal cancer presentation.
Far from a casual correlation, the 2015 study cited above gave further validity to two groundbreaking 2014 studies that also linked the gut microbiome to early detection of colorectal cancer and precancerous polyps. The first study in Cancer Prevention Research used stool samples to reveal both an enrichment and depletion of several bacterial populations associated with adenomas and carcinomas.
It strongly suggested the feasibility of using a simple stool sample to detect the presence of precancerous and cancerous lesions. The second 2014 study published inCancer Systems Biology showed that testing the gut microbiome (in addition to using the standard polyp and colon cancer detection methods of fecal occult blood testing) dramatically increased the accuracy of colorectal cancer detection.
Ways to Rebalance the GutWith microbial research still in its infancy, new hypotheses and directions are being pursued. Some are suggesting that by simply rebalancing the gut microbiome with the correct bacterial content, the environment may then be inhospitable for colorectal cancer to even take hold. Other approaches favor a move to restore the healthy bacteria content in the food and beverages we consume. Additionally, many probiotic supplements on the market are intended to bring balance to the bacterial environment needed by the gut microbiome.
While scientific research into the microbiome continues, a simple first step you can take towards rebalancing your gut is to eliminate all toxic processed and genetically-modified foods and beverages from your diet and replace them with natural, whole, organic foods.
