The Cancer Survivor's Diet

Once you’ve been bitten by The Big C, you have to start eating like your life
depends on it. So it’s out with the meat, alcohol and trans fats, and in with the fruits,
vegetables and vitamins.

By H.K. Jones

May 2006

Diana Dyer, a registered dietitian from Ann Arbor, Michigan, was diagnosed with a cancer called neuroblastoma when she was six months old. She was treated successfully with surgery and very large doses of radiation therapy.

When Dyer was 34 she discovered a lump in her left breast, which was determined to be malignant. She had a radical mastectomy and underwent six cycles of chemotherapy. During the following 10 years, her white blood cell count (an indicator of immune function) never returned to the normal range. Dyer’s next bout with breast cancer began when a tumor was detected on her 10-year anniversary mammogram. She once again endured chemotherapy and surgery.

After her third battle with cancer, Dyer decided she needed something more than conventional cancer treatments to both keep the disease at bay and achieve optimal health. A fork became her weapon of choice—even a dietitian could learn to eat healthier. So she searched the scientific literature for guidance and developed her own anti-cancer diet. She has not had a recurrence to date and her immune function is often within the normal range.

Unlike Dyer, Kathleen Quinn of Washington, DC has never been diagnosed with cancer. But her mother has ovarian melanoma and her grandmother died of the disease, so she knows all too well the danger she faces. To help her fight against the looming killer, Quinn has also made substantial changes to her diet. “I’m completely terrified of cancer and I want to protect myself,” she says.
Quinn and Dyer are just a few of the many people worried about cancer who are turning to their diets for protection, and it’s no wonder.

Diet and Disease

Cancer is not a single disease, but the generic name for over 100 medical conditions involving uncontrolled and abnormal cell growth. Even though scientists are only beginning to understand the causes and development of cancer, a growing body of evidence shows that what we eat plays a large role in its prevention. According to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), 30% to 40% of all cancers are directly linked to our diet and related factors like staying fit and maintaining a healthy weight.

For more than 10 million people in the US who have undergone successful cancer treatment, proper nutrition is absolutely critical. “Studies show that what we eat can influence a whole range of hormones, growth factors and controllers of cell growth, leading to the expectation that diet plays an important role in survival after cancer,” says Karen Collins, registered dietitian and AICR nutrition advisor. In fact, each time you pick a fruit, vegetable or bean, you add a brick to the foundation of your health—an active part you can take in your recovery and survival.
