Question: For someone who has colon cancer, how many ounces per week of animal products would be permissible? And which types — organic eggs, chicken?
Answer: I think discussing what animal products, and/or in what quantity would not be appropriate for a person with colon cancer. The answer is zero — no animal products. Animal products promote anabolic hormones, especially IGF-1, which can induce cell proliferation, increasing the risk or growth of cancer. The same is true for sugar. A vegan, Nutritarian diet (with green juices) rich in plant proteins from beans, seeds, nuts, and greens is more appropriate for a person with colon cancer. Exercise is also important. Studies have shown that exercising 4-5 hours/week reduces the risk of colon cancer recurrence significantly.
