Many individuals who follow the Nutritarian diet write to Dr. Fuhrman about their success. Keep in mind that results vary from person to person. As always, consult your physician if you have a medical history and/or condition that may warrant individual recommendations.

Ruth's Story

Thirty-six years ago Ruth was diagnosed with breast cancer that had spread into other organs;  she enrolled in a study calling for a Nutritarian diet and continues to be free of cancer
 

 I was diagnosed in 1982 with Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma, Stage 4 with mets to bone, lung and possibly liver. As soon as they started staging it, they found the "hot spots" on my bones (which explained all the bone pain I was having), the chest x-ray showed one tumor, and liver enzymes were extremely elevated. At that time, I learned of the then-current research on diet and breast cancer. I enrolled in a clinical research study which required only one variable, essentially the Nutritarian diet, and had no chemotherapy, radiation, or hormone-blocking drugs. I became more diligent about have beans and mushrooms daily when I entered the study.  

Seeing the science-based studies clearly demonstrated to me that an animal-based diet increased risk of breast cancer and that a 100 percent plant-based, no oils diet not only significantly lowers risk of cancer but also has the power to reverse it!

The bone pain started disappearing within days and was gone by one month later, the tumor in my lung had encapsulated by six months, and the extremely high liver enzymes normalized within seventeen days.

Because of the increase in energy and so many of the other health benefits, I decided to do the Ironman Triathlon to demonstrate that not only was the Nutritarian diet good for reversing the cancer, adult acne, osteoarthritis, and constipation, but it enhanced athletic abilities as proven by hundreds of gold medals in marathons, triathlons, and other races of various distances. The cancer has not recurred in 36 years and there is no question that I will continue with the diet as long as I live. This should be to at least 100 when I plan on still setting records in races and triathlons.
