Watched the documentary Be Here Now on Netflix of an actor who was struck down by lymphoma. Very powerful blow by blow description of his struggle with the disease. But I was shocked that the one thing he didn’t try was to design his diet to fight the tumors. That never came up as an option.
Anyone who has read at all extensively about food and cancer knows that sugar feeds tumors, the foods with high ORAC values negate free radicals, and that certain types of mushrooms restrain blood vessel growth in tumors and therefore starve them, but none of this came up during his battle with the disease. Like food and cancer were completely unrelated. Not true, in my opinion.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
