Cancer and High-Carb Diet Forums


[JEV News, September 9, 2011] During the recent weeks, I have been asked by some people to help Steve Jobs, Chairman of Apple Inc. with advice for his pancreatic cancer. In the meantime, I have received e-mails with stories about ill consequences of consuming high-carbohydrate low-fat diet.

Although I am confident that restricting carbohydrates can halt or even reverse the progression of cancers, I believe that we need more clinical reports to support the claim. At the same time, you and I have experienced ill consequences of eating high-carbohydrate diet, in combination with either high-fat or low-fat. Or, people, whom you and/or I know, have been sick and sicker as they continue to consume a high-carbohydrate diet. They suffer thyroid disease, which commonly results in hypothyroidism; dyslipidemia with high triglycerides and LDLs, low HDLs, and non-alcoholic fatty liver and liver cirrhosis; high C-reactive protein with inflammatory diseases; hypertension, arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, stroke and/or acute heart attack; kidney failure, diabetes mellitus, cancer, and so on. Yes, we have known so many cases. But, we still need more in documentation or written testimonies that we can share with others and help them from getting into the same path, in which many have been.

To help all of us restore and maintain good health, the website,, has created two forums: one for “Adverse Effects of a High-carb Diet”.and the other for “Cancer and Diet Education and Support.” The forums need your stories. These stories help us learn about how a high carbohydrate diet can negatively impact our health that includes the development of cancer, and about how restricting carbohydrate can improve our health that includes the halt or even reversal of cancer progression.

I wholeheartedly hope that these two forums will collect as many case reports as possible for helping all of us live a healthy and long life.
