Chris Walk, on the other hand, forged his own path. In 2003, the then 26-year-old was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer. He underwent surgery to remove the golf ball-sized tumor in his large intestine and affected lymph nodes (1).
Here are his two ground rules on how to fight cancer naturally.
1. Go Vegan
The cancer survivor insists that it’s important to avoid dairy, meat, and processed foods, which can increase inflammation and contribute towards cancer. While fruits contain plenty of nutrients, they’re also high in sugar, which feeds cancer cells. Therefore, it’s best to keep your vegetable-to-fruit ratio at 70/30. He also suggests eating them separately. For example, you can start your day with a fruit smoothie and eat veggies at lunch and dinner.
2. Eat Organic
Pesticides sprayed on genetically modified produce are carcinogenic and have a negative impact on cell health. Since the diet only really works if you follow it to a T, it’s important to eliminate all sources of pesticides from your diet and lifestyle. Just make sure to wash all your produce before you eat it.
