    Rich, this is in ref to your close female friend who died from a
    certain type of cancer.

    I was reading an article where another female had the same type
    of cancer. But she stopped consuming diary and grain products.
    Her cancer just disappeared.

    Also, the former First Lady, Jackie Kennedy, died from this type
    of cancer. But she was a "secret" smoker for years.

    So, maybe following a good healthy life style really matters.

    While there is plenty of evidence from well-designed clinical trials
    that diet can indeed influence your susceptibility to developing cancer,
    there is no evidence of anywhere near comparable quality that dietary
    manipulations can be used to treat cancer once it has already become
    clinically apparent. Anecdotal evidence proves nothing, particularly
    when there is no way of verifying whether the anecdote is even true or
    whether it is just another exaggerated (or even made-up) claim.
