Fighting Cancer with Your Fork

In “Eating for Cancer Recovery” (May), we found that proper nutrition is crucial for people recovering from cancer despite challenges posed by off flavors and digestion changes. We asked readers of our blog at www.energytimes.com and on our Facebook page if they were eating to avoid cancer; here are two responses.

I have had several family members who have had cancer recently, and all made dietary changes. Two saw great success, with their cancers in remission. Unfortunately the other passed away but I think the dietary changes helped anyway, since she felt healthy for as long as she could.

My family and I take chlorella and spirulina as an added precaution to our healthy diet.

 

Bedbug Concerns

Regarding the “Clean Clothes” article in your April issue (Earth Matters, which advocates washing clothes in cold water to save energy): This is very wrongheaded thinking because of an epidemic of bedbugs in the United States. (In Plano and Dallas, the children also have lice.) To kill these pests, you have to use hot water for washing clothes, and a lot of it. We have learned that even professional cleaners are washing everything in cold water.

We are having community meetings to address the issue of cold-water washing and are taking steps. Everyone is putting more water—very hot—from the sink into their washers. We are also hand-washing items.

We have done a lot of investigating—and it is not a pretty picture.
