Video Transcript: Anti-Cancer Foods Found in Nature
Ty Bollinger: The whole food, the plant-based diet, should be a staple in order to not only stay healthy to prevent disease, but if you have been diagnosed with cancer. This whole interview, this investigative report that I’m doing is focused on preventing cancer. When you look at the statistics of the World Health Organization 2010, they said of the people who are alive today, one in two men and one in three women are going to face a cancer diagnosis. This information needs to get out there. People need to know how they can eat to prevent this.
Mike Adams: A whole food, predominately plant-based diet is an anti-cancer diet, period. There are more anti-cancer medicines in a diverse whole-food diet than the cancer industry will ever come up with, regardless of how many billions of dollars they spend on research.
There are anti-cancer compounds in celery, anti-cancer compounds in beets, anti-cancer compounds in the white stuff inside of the orange peel. When you peel the orange peeling off, you should leave that white layer on the oranges, on the pieces. Eat as much as that as possible. It’s anti-cancer.
Anti-cancer elements in red wine and red grapes − resveratrol − about which we talked. Anti-cancer elements in seeds and in nuts. There are so many that modern science it will take us hundreds of years to even begin to understand the anti-cancer potential that’s found in a grocery store right now.
Ty Bollinger: Yeah. I honestly believe that there are more. It would be harder to find the whole foods that don’t contain cancer-fighting properties than it would be to just pick one. You could just pick any of them. They all have some kind of different method by which they would help to prevent cancer or to treat cancer.
Mike Adams: It reminds me of a question that a traditional Chinese medicine master once asked me when we were having discussions in nature about what’s healing. This is [a] very powerful but simple question. We were in a forest. He said, “Look around. Find me something around here in the forest. Find me something that is NOT medicine.” I couldn’t.
Ty Bollinger: You couldn’t do it.
Mike Adams: I couldn’t. Everything around us was medicine in one form or the other. Even the soil beneath our feet, the microbes in the soil are medicine. The minerals in the stones are medicine. The chemical constituents in the tree bark are traditional Chinese medicine. A lot of those are tree barks. The herbs, the plants, everything had a medicinal component. Even the sky the sunlight was medicinal. The water in the plants is medicinal. I couldn’t find anything that wasn’t medicine.
And so when people come up to me and they say things like, “I don’t know what to do about cancer, I’ve tried everything.” Have you tried nature? Have you? I bet you that on the way to your cancer clinic, you walked by nature, you walked by some plants that probably have anti-cancer medicines in them.
Ty Bollinger: I can guarantee they did.
Mike Adams: I used to live in the desert in Arizona. There were anti-cancer treatment centers there where in the parking lots, had anti-cancer plants, desert plants. They’re very potent.
Ty Bollinger: They probably were better treatments than [what] were inside.
Mike Adams: Absolutely! So people would park their cars, ignoring the medicine right there for free, and they would walk inside of the cancer treatment center. And get poisoned and pay for it, and wonder why they were still sick. That’s how messed up the cancer industry is today.
Ty Bollinger: That is the insanity that we call the cancer industry today.
Mike Adams: Literally, in many parts of Arizona, you can just go out in the wild and you can harvest anti-cancer desert plants, wild crafted, for free.
Ty Bollinger: I know. It’s nuts. It really is.
Mike, that reminds me of the old mantra from Hippocrates: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” I think that if we could sum up what we’ve talked about today, if we can get a whole plant-based diet to treat cancer and/or to prevent cancer, that would be the direction that we should go.
Mike Adams: That is a sustainable path for humanity.
