A new study reports positive results when a fasting diet is combined with taking Vitamin C.*
“a fasting diet plus vitamin C has the potential to replace more toxic treatments,”Jesse Slome, director of the American Association of Critical Illness Insurance
A cancer vitamins study of mice reports positive outcomes
Scientists have found that a diet that mimics fasting could be more effective at treating some types of cancer when combined with vitamin C.
The researchers found that the combination delayed tumor progression in multiple mouse models of colorectal cancer. In some mice, the combination actually caused disease regression according to the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance (AACII).
The scientists from the University of Southern California (USC) and the IFOM Cancer Institute noted that fasting remains a challenging option for cancer patients. They report that a safer, more feasible option is a low-calorie, plant-based diet. They point out that this can cause cells to respond as if the body were fasting.
“The findings of their research suggest that a fasting diet plus vitamin C has the potential to replace more toxic treatments,” states Jesse Slome, director of the critical illness insurance association.
Prior research on the cancer-fighting potential of vitamin C have been mixed. “Recent studies, though, are beginning to show some efficacy, especially in combination with chemotherapy, the report explains. “In this new study, the research team wanted to find out whether a fasting-mimicking diet could enhance the high-dose vitamin C tumor-fighting action by creating an environment that would be unsustainable for cancer cells but still safe for normal cells.”
Cancer vitamins study forecasts future cancer treatments
Low toxicity drugs will eventually be used to treat cancers. That’s what the researchers foretasted. Treatment will be similar to how antibiotics are used to treat infections that kill particular bacteria.
“While 5,000 Americans are diagnosed with cancer every day, most will survive thanks to continually improved treatments,” Slome notes. “Surviving a cancer diagnosis is likely for most but comes with a financial toll many are unprepared for,” Slome says. “Health insurance plans come with deductibles, co-insurance costs and not all cancer treatments and medications may be covered.”
Cost of cancer care, $150 billion spent annually by Americans
