I have just been dealt a huge blow. My doctor has advised me that I have a large growth (7 centimeters/3-1/2 inches) in my right kidney.
SueZQuilter wrote:My question is, can a healthy lifestyle shrink a growth that is most likely cancerous? I know of the television cooking show host, Christina Pirello, who had leukemia and had only a short time to live. She changed her lifestyle and began eating a macrobiotic diet and has been cancer free for over 13 years.
What are your thoughts on reversing, shrinking or just keeping cancerous tumors from growing rapidly by using diet and lifestyle? Is there any documented data available?

From my research into kidney disease etc., I read that the use of legumes in the diet is not recommended because of the excessive proteins. I suspect I should switch to grains and potatoes to obtain the fullness that I require, right?

I'm no expert...maybe it's not even the gluten in the bread responsible here, maybe just the "refined" aspect of grains, etc. But it sounds like something to be studied further to me..

Can you elaborate?

Wheat consumption is way down in the USA over the last century. You can see the actual data/charts online. It fell dramatically since its peak in 1880 and while it rose slightly in the 70s, is still way down from its peak, and has fallen again since the mid 90s..
