Any swelling - the body is uncontrolled cell proliferation of a particular tissue. If the cells similar to the cell of tissue from which they were formed, the tumor is benign if significantly different (abnormal cells), the malignant. The most dangerous tumors composed of undifferentiated cells, which in appearance are similar to embryonic cells (first cells of the embryo, which were all the same).

When the tumor cells begin to multiply, they need nutrients. It is the struggle for nutrients to cells of healthy tissue and causes metabolic disorders, which manifests itself all the known signs: weight loss, weakness, malaise.

Most suffer from carbohydrate metabolism as well as cancer cells need glucose - a source of energy for metabolism. Tumor cells taken from normal cells glucose, thereby suffering and other exchange (protein and fat), which can not be carried out without a sufficient amount of energy.

Fundamentals of proper nutrition in cancer

Proper nutrition cancer involves the use of products that inhibit the growth of the tumor and elimination products that stimulate tumor process.

For the normalization of carbohydrate metabolism carbohydrates should be ingested slowly and continuously, a source of carbohydrates traditionally considered vegetables, cereals, wholemeal bread. All of these products in addition to complex carbohydrates are high in fiber, which is excreted from the body unchanged but helps to cleanse the bowel. Together with the stool from the body of a cancer patient derived metabolic products that constipation might be re-absorbed into the blood and further poison the body.

In contrast, carbohydrate (candy, pastries) in cancer can stimulate tumor growth, as it quickly captured cells and used for energy supply of the process of cell division. Therefore, all the sweets should be excluded from the diet of a cancer patient. With regard to fruit and berries, in particular sweet, which contains a large amount of simple sugars that they contain other biologically active substances, which promote tumor growth inhibition. Nevertheless, better to give preference unsweetened varieties of fruits and berries.

It is recommended to avoid (or limit the use of up to 1-2 times a week), red meat (such as beef), especially fatty varieties. It was established that the meat contributes to enhanced development of insulin The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives  The principles of action of insulin - the science of saving lives
