Talking What about a vegetarian diet?

Hello everyone,
I have been a vegetarian for about 4 years now even though I sometimes rarely eat fish and chicken, but I have been at the prime of health because of it. I know many people who have been diagnosed with cancer and have fought off the cancer with a vegetarian diet without kemo treatment.

I highly suggest going vegetarian or even vegan to everyone. I want to hear your imput on this :-)

Talk to you soon

While I myself have been vegetarian for over 10 years and praise/recommend the lifestyle to anyone for heath and/or ethical reasons, I also think it is highly dangerous (and erroneous) to suggest that cancer can be "fought off" without chemo simply because of diet.

Re: What about a vegetarian diet?

Heather, I know that a vegetarian diet should not be proposed as the only way to fight cancer because it may not work for everyone, but I am telling you no word of a lie that I know of many people personaly that I have talked to and see on a regualr basis that have fought off cancer completely because of a 100% vegetarian diet. In fact most of them are vegan.
