Question: Is it possible to fight breast cancer without radiation?
— Nelda G., Aberdeen, Md.
Dr. Blaylock answers: Post-operative radiation studies suggest that radiation reduces the risk of recurrence, but most do not do long-term follow-up and the possible induction of other cancers by the radiation itself.
Compelling studies have shown that many nutrients powerfully suppress cancer growth, invasion, and spread. The most promising nutrients for breast cancer are curcumin, quercetin, ellagic acid, DHA, and resveratrol.
You should avoid soy products, which have been shown to stimulate breast cancer invasion and growth, and avoid all food excitotoxin additives. It is also vital to avoid sweets, high glycemic carbohydrates, and omega-6 oils (corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, and canola oils) as they promote cancer invasion and metastasis.

Question: Are there any alternative treatments you can recommend for elevated PSA (prostate specific antigens)?
— Harry S., Henderson, Nev.
Dr. Blaylock answers: A number of studies have shown that radiation treatments for prostate cancer have very little effectiveness, along with a number of complications.
Recent studies, including human and animal studies, indicate two important things. First, following the PSA is unreliable. Any irritation of the prostate or retained prostate tissue — even an infection — can elevate the PSA.
Interestingly, nutraceutical flavonoids have been shown to have similar cancer inhibiting effects on prostate cancer as seen with breast cancer. Curcumin, quercetin, ellagic acid, hesperidin, resveratrol, and DHA have all been shown to suppress prostate cancer growth, invasion, and metastasis. Modified citrus pectin has been shown in a number of studies to powerfully suppress prostate cancer spread.
