One response to “I3C inhibits cancer cell growth

  1. I have felt much hope after reading “The China Study” by Dr. Colin Campbell, which in brief is a comprehensive study of nutrition and its influence on cancer growth. Have you read this book and/or have thoughts on cancer surviving in alkaline versus acidic environments? Concurrent to cancer, I have Rh. Arthritis, (for which I took the hated Humira) and the vegetable diet has eliminated the pain and most of the inflamation. What I am searching for is information on dietary control of cancer…what hope that would give so many of us!
    Thanks for reading my plight!
