How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

I just received an interesting email from a friend. It is based on a study done by a biochemist. Apparently, asparagus treatment has been found to make cancer disappear.
Use canned asparagus, puree it, mix it with water (or not), and take 4 T in the A.M. and 4 T in the P.M. A study has shown that people who had various types of cancer saw the cancer disappear in just a few weeks!
My husband and I are going to try it. I certainly don't think it can hurt to try. Just wanted to share.

Hey Mary Ann,
All I know is I wiped two cans of cream of asparagus on my head and body each day throughout my head and neck chemo and radiation and it didn't help me one bit althought the treatment itself did "cream" me...using a 1970's playground football expression....LOL.....(with you-not at you Mary Ann)
...and dang it, I didn't smoke either prior to cancer so I now smoke 4 packs a day without fail and I feel great but my 100 yard dash times are slowing (kidding kids).....but eye ain't bitteeeeer.......lollllllllll.....(or I might cry)......see ya, thanks for your contribution...
...my bottom line MA: antioxidants combined with a lean low cal, high fiber, whole grain unprocessed diet are critical, especially as we age...and as time rolls on...I bet we will find out that we in fact needed more potent...or derivatives/concentrations of antioxidants MA......that would not hurt the body by lingering in it or accumulating in the body in dangerous or toxic levels etc.
..I think we should try everything so long as we do not replace proven science or medicines....I do, however, believe in risk-taking especially with the slowness of our FDA approving life-saving drugs available to other countries but not here...
.MA, I do feel strongly that terminal patients should have the right to sign a release and to try these approved drugs in other countries or Stage 3 clinical drugs in the USA (not yet approved) that show hope and promise because terminal patients have nothing to lose and everything to gain....
the Corner man,

I would love your recipe for the Vege/Fruit juice. I bought a juicer a couple of months ago, and am still looking for recipes. Thanks for sharing!

Dear Mary Ann ,
I am blending the following together :-
- small size Beet root : one
- red carrot : two
- tomato : two
- fresh blue berry : 1/2 a cup
- Lemon : one
- dragon fruit : half
- warm water : 2 cup ( 200 ml per cup )
- garlic : one pc ( note : one pc of the whole garlic )
- ginger : 5 slices
- parsley : 1/4 cup
- Flax seed : 3 tea spoon
- lycium berries : 3 table spoon
- White sesame : 3 tea spoon
- mint leaf : 4 leafs
The quantity meant for 6 cups , some people will blend it and take 2 cups before breakfast and 2 cups before lunch and 2 cups in the late afternoon.
Suggest to drink it with empty stomach.
For me, I blend three times a day ( so that I can drink it fresh ) , so , I use 1/3 of the quantity of the ingredient . And I normally take 2 cups before I go for brisk walking and 2 cups after brisk walking. Actually, I am not really take breakfast after the 4 cups . Then, I will have early lunch at about 12 noon. or else, I hv very light breakfast.
U may adjust on the amount of ginger ; garlic and increase it slowly . For me, I am already with 5 slices of ginger for every 2 cups .
Not advisable to add other things into the given ingredient. But, I did add Kiwi fruit, so far okay .
Anyway, it is all vege and fruits, but, please do monitor reaction after taking it, as some patient may not get use to it and need time to slowly increase the volume from 2 cups a day to until 6 cups a day.
I been taking it since April 2009 until now and so far it works very well for me.
This recipe is to strengthen our Lung function and Colon system . Also as prevention for Lung Cancer.
And the main healing is from our beloved God .

Thank you so much for the information. I will look into trying it, but think I should do a little more juicing before I mix too much together. I appreciate you sharing your recipe and comments. Keep up the good work!

Just wanted to throw out there a question/comment on the apsaragus topic. I am a Stage IV papillary renal cell patient and initially tried holistic approach, with no success, and am now on conventional therapy (Avastin). I do however, continue to juice daily for health benefits. I have reviewed many docs indicating it's best to use these fruits and veggies in their raw state when ingested, so as to keep their essential nutrients in the state in which the body can use them maximally. My understanding was that if they are boiled/fully cooked (although I have read a quick stir fry is not bad), then either these nutrients come out of the asparagus or are structurally altered. I have a Waring Pro Juicer and have juiced organic asparagus before: couple findings; not a lot of liquid in a stalk and the taste is not the most pleasant. Also, anyone else read about the fiber content of these juiced items being great for the body overall? That recipe mentioned earlier in the link looks great and I will have to try. Well, not sure if I accomplished anything with this message. I guess my main concern was that if you're trying the asparagus approach to be sure that you're not losing it's full benefit via the manner by which you're going about it.
Prayers and fight to all of you in the fight,
Never, never, NEVER GIVE UP!!! EVER!!

Yes, I had stage 4 cancer of the mouth & tongue & etc. Thank god it is in remission. My treatment wasn't bad but the recovery was living hell for awhile. With the asparagus what I read & heard Green Giant was one of the best brands due to the items in the product. I wish him the best. Sincerely, Roger

It's been almost two years since your post, how are you doing?
My boss was diagnosed 3 months ago with renal clear cell cancer on both kidneys and masses around adrenal glands. Had right side kidney and adrenal removed two months ago. Contemplating holistic vs traditional treatment for the 4 spots on his remaining kidney and the mass surrounding the adrenal gland.
He's doing the asparasgus in the morning or during the day sometime, large cupful of the canned green giant. (don't know why canned vs. fresh???). Also eating a lot of veggies and staying away from bad food as much as possible.
Any help anyone can provide in the form of successful renal cancer testimonials or treatments would be greatly appreciated.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
