National Institutes of Health Research Fellowships

2005-2010 NIH Research Fellowship. I was awarded a grant to study the clinical and basic science effects of a natural product from the medicinal mushroom, Trametes versicolor. The basic science study explored the immunological effects of the polysaccharide portion of the mushroom on Toll-like 4 receptors on macrophage and T helper 1 activation. Various cytokines that promote inflammatory reactions or suppress them were also studied. The clinical portion of the study looked at the effects of the mushroom on healthy women and those burdened with breast cancer. Primary focus was given to Natural Killer cell activity and immune cell recovery following chemotherapy.

Cook food right to fight cancer (and other health problems)

After exercise, nutrition is the top factor in prevention of disease, including cancer. Eating the right foods, in general, and the right specific foods during illness can have a profound effect on quality of life and also recovery.

The question is, however, which foods and spices are the most beneficial during cancer treatment and beyond.

The standard American diet is a bit heavy on simple carbohydrates. In addition, because it is also high in processed foods, nutrient deficiencies, like magnesium, Vitamin D and omega 3 fatty acids, are quite common. In general, a shift towards diets containing ample portions of protein, complex carbohydrates, good fats and low simple carbohydrates (25 grams for women and 35 grams for men per the American Dietetic Association) and five servings of leafy greens and fruit is beneficial. Diets should include minimal soda as well as minimal artificial sweeteners. Whenever possible use high burning oils, like coconut oil, to cook with if you are frying foods. Using whole, unprocessed foods containing minimal preservatives are also a good bet. An example of this would be using real butter instead of margarine as a condiment.
