Excerpt: “…diet and lifestyle can not only prevent the initiation stage of cancer, but it can also hamper the promotion stage of cancer.  … Remarkably, eating a plant-based diet along with walking every day can improve our cancer defenses within just two weeks. Researchers dipped blood of women onto breast cancer cells growing in petri dishes before and after 14 days of healthy living. The blood taken after they started eating healthier suppressed cancer growth significantly better and killed 20 to 30 percent more cancer cells then the blood taken from the same women just two weeks before.”
