The World and battle with cancer
The world has grown with increasing fear on the number of deaths by cancer. Cancer rate in Africa has doubled in recent years according to oncology department of Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Yenagoa Nigeria. A lot of brilliant mind has been lost.
On 7th of June Nigerians always remember the former Director General of National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) Prof. Dora Akunyili; the woman who fought against fake and counterfeit drugs in Nigeria; was also lost to cervical cancer in 2013.
As I’m writing, I also just lost a relative to breast cancer, after the diagnosis, she was advised to surgically remove the breast; after 8 months of removal, the disease spread to the lungs which prevented her from breathing properly before she finally died.
NGOs and government agencies have started to brain storm on how to cut carcinoma deaths; Many NGOs believe awareness on early screening and detection is the best way; this is actually good, but after its detected, the patient will like die because the permanent cure for cancer hasn’t been discovered. Most treatment procedure only aim to prolong the life of the patient.
Challenges of chemotherapy
Most hospitals employ chemotherapy in managing carcinoma cases. It is expensive; a chemo section cost not less than $40 and it could be repeated six times in a year especially in developing countries. At the end of the section, the patient could even die because of the side effects of chemotherapy.
As scientist keep working day and night on the solution to cancer cells, it is important I tell you that the best way in this situation is to prevent the body cells from irreversible degeneration.
What does diet do to Cancer?
What to do to prevent or destroy cancer at early stage is to combine dietary supplements that can boost your metabolic deficiency with diets that will strengthen your immune system. This method prevents oxidative stress (the metabolic cause of cancer) by restoring a balance in the body’s defense and recovery mechanism of body’s detoxifying process. It works best and for the past 30years now.
The Edible plants and fruits
Garlic. The garden vegetable of the onion family have been found by experiment to be successful against cancer in both animal and human studies. According to Dr. Airola, a naturopathic physician and nutritionist. A study report tells of mice being infected with cancer cells, and some treated with garlic extract gave a clue. The mice not given garlic died 16 days while the other mice lived for six months. And recent studies done in Russia have found garlic preparations to retard tumor growth not only in animals, but also in human beings, writes Dr. Airola. I therefore recommend families and person to add garlic to their diet periodically.
Ginger. Ginger has two major compounds; discovered to have cancer preventive properties in experiment. They are Gingerol and Paradol; and compounds like shogaols, zingerone also contribute to the chemoprotective activity of ginger. It’s better to include ginger as a spice or a diet tonic for you and your family especially the female child.

The limonene also possesses anticancer activity. Nibu fruit inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and delaying of mammary tumorigenesis. It is also used in metastasis and leukemia. Taking Lemon strengthens the immune system from toxins that causes cancer in the body.
