SUMMARY OF IMPORTANT INFO:
1. Sugar is a cancer feeder. Avoid sugar. Sugar substitutes like Equal,
Spoonful, NutraSweet are made with Aspartame, a chemical that is harmful
to the body. A better natural alternative is Manuka honey in small amounts.
2. Milk causes the body to produce mucus. Cancer thrives on mucus.
A better calcium alternative is unsweetened soya milk. Milo, Horlicks,
Ovaltine are all milk-based, so it is best to avoid.
3. Green tea has anti-cancer properties. It is a better substitute
for coffee and tea, which have caffeine, bad for people with cancer. 4.
Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative
is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
4. Meat like pork, beef, chicken contain livestock antibiotics, growth
hormones, parasites, etc which are all harmful for people with cancer.
It is better to eat fish, or eat a little free-range chicken. Meat protein
is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested
meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic
6. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining
from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls
of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer
7. Water - best to drink purified water, filtered or distilled, to
avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water.
8. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink
fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat
some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures
of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
RECIPES - CANCER FIGHTING FOODS
SOUPS - It is not necessary to add sauce, as there is natural sweetness
and flavor from the ingredients. Most of these involve cutting the ingredients
into bite-sized portions before adding to boiling water. Measure water
(filtered or purified) to use with small soup bowls, depending on how
many persons are eating. (Pots - use glassware, stainless steel, ceramic
1. Watercress and carrot soup
2. Radish and carrot soup
3. Lotus root and red dates soup
4. Hipprocrates soup - leek, celery, big onion, potato, tomato
5. Fresh corn and soya beans soup (presoak the soya beans for 3 hours.
Discard water. Boil beans in hot water. Fresh corn can be added when the
beans are softer)
6. Black beans, white beans and small onions (shallots) soup Presoak black
beans about an hour. Discard water. Boil the black beans first. Cut small
onions into thick slices. Then add small onions and white beans.
7. Potato, carrot and onion soup
8. Winter melon, carrot and red dates soup
VEGETABLES - Vegetable dishes - most of these tastes nice with just garlic
and Bragg's aminos or organic miso. Avoid using non-stick pan as the chemical
coating can come off into the food. Instead of heating the pan and adding
oil first, we use water to fry the vegetables. This is to avoid letting
the oil reach high temperatures, which can be carcinogenic.
Method: Heat pan with a little water. Add minced garlic and cook a
while. Add vegetables and a little oil and more water as needed. Cover
and let it Steam cook. Turn off fire and add Bragg's aminos or organic
1. Bean sprouts with carrot strips. Cook the carrot first before adding
the bean sprouts.
2. Bean sprouts with tau gua. Cut tau gua into small pieces. Cook in water.
Remove tau gua. Add some water to pan and add minced garlic. Add bean
sprouts. When almost done, add in tau gua, and Bragg's aminos. You may
add spring onions or parsley for more flavour.
3. French beans with tau gau (same as for 2)
4. French beans with garlic
5. French beans with carrot
6. Bitter gourd with garlic
7. Long beans with garlic
8. Chye Sim with garlic, or with fresh fish cake cut into slices
9. Spinach with garlic (not to often as it has oxalates)
10. Spinach (puay leng) with garlic and mushrooms
11. Xiao bai chai with garlic
12. Jie Lan with garlic, or with garlic and carrot
13. Angled loofah - cooked with garlic and an egg
14. Tau gua and tau pok in black sauce and garlic
15. Tau gua, gau gee (bean curd sheet) in black sauce and garlic
16. Tau hu with garlic and seaweed
17. Many vegetables can be eaten raw without salad dressing - cabbage,
cauliflower, green pepper, celery, cucumber, carrot, asparagus spears,
corn on cob, etc or a little olive, and Braggs
FISH (twice a week is sufficient) - steamed or cooked with water, garlic,
ginger, spring onions,
tomatoes, parsley and a little Bragg's aminos.
PORRIDGE - Use brown rice, unpolished rice or mixed with some white rice.
1. Sweet potato, unpolished and white rice
2. Shredded carrot with unpolished and white rice
3. White bait (fresh or dried), shredded carrot, ginger, unpolished and
white rice 3
RICE - use brown rice or unpolished rice or mixed with some white rice.
Unpolished rice takes longer to cook, so cook unpolished rice first before
adding white rice.
RAW FOODS - Almonds (presoak 10 almonds in some water and keep in the
fridge for 24 hours. Peel and discard skin before eating.) Walnuts, cashew
nuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, nori seaweed (tear into small pieces
to eat with some raw vegetables)
FRUITS - require different digestive enzymes from other foods. It is best
to eat fruits either one hour before any meal or two hours after a meal.
If fruits are eaten after a meal they will ferment in the stomach together
with the other food and the nutrients would not be fully absorbed. It
is good to eat papayas and pineapples for the enzymes papain and bromelain
to digest protein. Apples and apple juice are also good. It is helpful
to drink half a glass of warm water with some lemon juice first thing
in the morning on waking.
BREAKFAST - rolled oats, wholemeal bread, miso vegetable soul, porridge
etc. Bread spreads - almond butter or organic fruit jam are preferred
to margarine. Margarine is hydrogenated fat, which is harmful. Avoid all
By adding two sticks of butter with one cup of canola/olive oil. By
blending the butter with oil, you are in effect cutting down on the amount
of saturated fat you would get in your butter.
Don't worry about a calcium deficiency, especially if you've cut back
on meat: vegetables (esp. broccoli), grains, beans, raw seeds (esp. sesame
seeds), nuts (esp. almonds), and various kinds of seaweed (esp. kelp).
Fish congee is also easy to digest. A cooling congee can be made with
pot barley or mittet, a less cooling variety with brown rice and more
or less neutral congee with oat groats.
Fish congee with pot barley or millet is good for gall bladder inflammation,
cystitis, stomach ulcers, and prostatitis due to too much heat in the
stomach. People with these ailments should marinate the fish slices in
only spring onions, sea-salt and 1 drop roasted sesame oil, and leave
out the ground black pepper.
Brown rice congee is suitable for everyone.

1 cup of soup per person.
