The Paleo Diet Vs. Cancer

The Paleo Diet Vs. Cancer

I know, all of us at Paleo Diet News have written about Cancer before, and how the Paleo Template can potentially be our best defense against the big “C” word. But, over the last few months, I have gathered some new tidbits of information that may be highly complementary in the fight against Cancer. The [...]

Paleo Diet: What if Omega-3′s Cause Cancer?

Sometimes, it takes what seems to be a really good idea, a long time to proliferate through the paleosphere, and into the mainstream. Sometimes, even though we’re all super-smart over here in Paleo-land, we actually get things wrong. Only slightly less than a year ago, it was the standard recommendation of each of the Paleo [...]

Paleo Diet: Fasting And Cancer

I guess this is one of those weeks where Mark Sisson just decided to turn-out a few little gems on his blog. My last post was about one of Mark’s articles, and so is this one. Cancer has to be one of the scariest “diseases” out there. Ok, so it’s really more of a mutation [...]

The Paleo Diet and Superfoods – Part 4: Mushrooms

In this ongoing series on superfoods (read parts one, two, and three), we now get to the mushrooms, those lovely magical fungi. Well, there ARE magical mushrooms, but those are NOT the sort I am talking about. The mushrooms I’m talking about have the potential to reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.  ‘They [...]

Paleo Diet: More Bad Journalism About Meat

You possibly saw the coverage in the press this week of the highly publicised “processed meat may increase pancreatic cancer” studies.  If not, head over to this Guardian article for a particularly potent example of why it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea if journalists were forever banned from interpreting scientific data.  Or, at the very [...]

More Evidence That The Paleo Diet Can Reduce Cancer Risk

A very interesting article was recently published on October 26th, 2011 by Nutrition & Metabolism, entitled: “Is there a role for carbohydrate restriction in the treatment and prevention of cancer?”. The article delivers more evidence that the Paleo Diet can reduce cancer risk, and improve heart disease markers. British Dr. John Briffa, a prominent low-carb [...]

What If The Paleo Diet Really Could Cure Everything?

Maybe it sounds silly to some, maybe it sounds perfectly plausible to others, and maybe it sounds like an irrefutable fact to yet another group of people. I happen to be one of those people who honestly believe that the Paleo diet lifestyle could actually cure everything. It’s a sad fact that in this day [...]

The Paleo Diet and Fiber

I’ve heard it a thousand times…..fiber is essential. It supposedly helps to keep us pooping regularly, cleans out our intestines, lowers cholesterol, and slows the rate at which we absorb sugar. But is all that really true? Considering that the mainstream gets just about everything else wrong, is fiber really as important as “they” say [...]

The Paleo Diet and Cancer Tumor Growth

A research article entitled “Targeting GLUT1 and the Warburg Effect in Renal Cell Carcinoma by Chemical Synthetic Lethality” was recently published in The Journal of Science Translational Medicine, August 3, 2011 (abstract is here). The effect of sugar on cancer cell and tumor growth is something that most of us inherently geeky Paleo folks know a [...]

Low-Carb, High-Protein Diet Slows Cancer Growth In Mice, Study Finds

So it sounds like eating a paleo diet would also be good for fighting cancer. I am willing to bet that a paleo diet would work even better since it would consist of organic foods, pastured animal products and more fat. It has been shown that carbohydrates feed cancer tumors so leaving out carbs for [...]
