To maintain maximum oxygen transfer to the cell, take sufficient parent omega-6 (linoleic acid-LA) and parent omega-3 (alphalinolenic acid-ALA) essential polyunsaturated oils (EFAs) daily. Take a daily minimum of 3 grams of a blend of parent omega-6 and 3 in the proportions given below about 1 teaspoon of blended oil each day. This translates to approximately 3/4 gram oil per every 35 pounds of bodyweight.
Proper Proportion to Take: Based on my research, (Reference: The Scientific Calculation of the Optimal Omega-6/3 Ratio at www. BrianPeskin.com (EFA Report: The Scientific Calculation)) for very strong anticancer protection, the EFA oils should be blended in a proportion between 1:1 to 2:5 of parent omega-6 to parent omega-3. In other words, use anywhere from one part omega-6 to one part omega-3, to two and one-half parts omega-6 to one part omega-3. (For example, don’t use ten parts omega-6 to one part omega-3).
The oils MUST be organic or wild-crafted, processed with little heat, and not contain fish oil. With reference to our suggested proportions of parent omega-6 to 3, note that health practitioners often suggest you use no additional parent omega-6 and that instead you use supplements exclusively with parent omega-3. This is incorrect because the omega-6 we do consume in our foods is highly processed, harmful and often loaded with cancer-causing transfats. You need the additional pure parent omega-6 to compensate for this.1 Because the parent EFAs are so much more effective than EFA derivatives, you need a much lower total quantity than other formulations.
Get enough copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc, in a “truly chelated” bioavailable form. These are the minerals that Dr. Warburg would use because they influence and maximize the respiratory (co)enzymes for maximum oxygen transfer to occur. They help EFAs do their job. Make sure they are in bioavailable form (truly chelated meaning chemically bonded to an amino acid) or they won’t be maximally effective. The essential anticancer minerals and their minimum amounts are:
Minerals Amount Percentage of RDA*
Copper 1 mg. 50%
Iron 10 mg. 56%
Magnesium 100 mg. 25%
Manganese 5 mg. 250%
Selenium 50 mcg. 70%
Zinc 10 mg. 67%
Given the widespread nutrient deficient soil caused by over-farming the land, even eating as well as possible, it is difficult to guarantee obtaining enough of the cancer-fighting minerals without supplementation.
Make certain you eat sufficient animal-based protein from organic or natural, free-range sources free of antibiotics, pesticides, and hormones each day. Organic eggs and cheese (cottage cheese, sour cream, etc. included) are great sources of protein. “Raw” milk and cream are excellent sources, too. Avoid all “low-fat” varieties. Eat a minimum of 8 oz. a day for a 150 lb. person. My research with clients around the world makes clear that animal-based protein should be your number one anticancer food choice after the EFA-containing oils. Once the EFA deficiency is solved, your appetite will work correctly and will guide you as to the correct amount of protein to eat without your having to count calories or amounts. On a physiological basis you can’t eat too much protein, contrary to popular belief.
The majority of the protein that you eat (60-70%) is used to fuel its own digestion.2 Only 30% or so is bio-available to your body. Anyone suggesting that a few ounces of protein per day are sufficient is incorrect, for maximum anticancer protection. Eating sufficient protein will help the hemoglobin in your blood carry enough iron, which directly leads to maximum oxygen in the blood and the ideal oxygen pressure in the tissues. Furthermore, eating protein automatically helps provide the vitamins that assist absorption of the minerals.
Growing children need lots of protein along with its natural fat to fuel their high degree of biochemical reactions during growth. Let them eat as much as they desire. If you wish, you may use these general guidelines for adult minimum daily amounts of protein:
Weight Minimum Amount of Protein
100-120 lbs. 6 oz.
130-140 lbs. 7 oz.
150-160 lbs. 8 oz.
170-180 lbs. 9 oz.
190-200 lbs. 10 oz.
210-220 lbs. 11 oz.
Note: “Red meat” is not required for maximum anticancer protection. You can be a vegetarian and still have excellent anticancer resistance with this program. For guidance in following a vegetarian diet, my recommendation for expert advice is Robert Rowen, M.D. (referenced above).
Make sure you minimize the number of carbohydrates you eat daily. Carbohydrates decrease blood speed and increase clotting – both cancer-causing conditions.3 Cut back on sugars, sweet desserts, breads, pastas, cereals, fruit juices, grains, and starchy vegetables such as potatoes, corn, and beans. An adult weighing 160 lbs. should consume at most 60 grams (A gram is a small unit of weight; 454 grams = 1 lb.) of carbohydrates per day (approximately 240 calories of carbohydrates, or 12 teaspoons of sugar or starch). Note: Every teaspoon of sugar equals approximately 20 calories of carbohydrates.
Make sure you take an herbal detoxifier every day to help minimize the effect of any carcinogens and harmful additives in your food. I recommend the original Canadian Ojibwa Indian formulation made popular by nurse Rene Caisse over 50 years ago, containing Sheep Sorrel, Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Bark, and Turkish Rhubarb Root. I suggest the addition of a South American herb called Cat’s Claw, but no additional herbs.
