What to do About Cancer - Part Two

Updated on February 1st, 2019

In part one of this look at what to do about cancer, I expressed support for surgical excision of a malignant tumor whenever deemed prudent by those involved.

Generally, I don't feel as good about radiation and chemotherapy, but before I explain why, please allow me to say this: if you've already undergone radiation or chemotherapy, consider your body strong and resilient, having withstood the harmful effects of these therapies.

Kale is a member of the cabbage family, and is an excellent source of the full vitamin C complex, and cancer-fighting carotenoids. It's also a good source of iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin K, and potassium.

Chickpeas are one of the least expensive, nutrient-rich foods that you can eat. They're rich in a number of nutrients, most notably folate, manganese, tryptophan, copper, iron, and of course, healthy protein. Due to their high tryptophan content, chickpeas are an excellent food choice for people who have trouble getting restful sleep. Read more about Nourishing Kale and Chickpea Soup Recipe

If you strive to avoid gluten-rich wheat noodles but find yourself missing the occasional bowl of pasta, you may find the perfect fix in soba noodles. Made mostly with buckwheat and long used in East Asian cuisine, soba noodles are very easy to prepare and are readily available in Asian markets and grocery stores in larger cities.

Most varieties of noodles that are low in or devoid of gluten require constant attention while boiling and leave a gooey mess of cooking water to deal with after. Not with soba. Three to four minutes and they're ready to go, and unlike grainy whole wheat pasta, soba noodles have a delightfully clean and smooth feel about them. Read more about Soba
