Early last June I was rung up by a man from Ireland about the Q1000, which he had come across when undergoing raw food treatment for cancer at the Hippocrates Institute in Florida, USA. He had liposarcoma (cancer of the connective tissue) between C3 down to C7, around the nerves and the spinal cord. He had cancer six years ago in the leg, and turning down any conventional treatment, he had followed the Gerson diet. Two and a half years later cancer came back in his neck, and now for a third time it was back again. Changing his diet completely to a raw one had seen his weight go down to 11 stone. He is 6'1". The only fat he was allowed was a small piece of avocado every three days, and a handful of nuts every four days.
As an advocate of traditional foods, in particular the Weston A Price approach, I was alarmed at this low fat (practically nil) approach to cancer, and when he told me that his tumour was rapidly growing a week after returning home from Florida I knew my fears were not misplaced. Turning someone around like that to a diet that is so radically different is not easy, but I emailed him a link to information from Dr Thomas Cowan, on how to VERY slowly introduce fat, after your body has had to adjust to very little.
