The High Omega 3 Low Omega 6 Regimen

What are Omega 3 and Omega 6?
Omega 3 and omega 6 are both fats.  Specifically, they are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). 
It’s important to be mindful of how much omega 3 and omega 6 we eat and drink, because these fats are incorporated into all the cells of the body, both normal and cancer cells.

How to Approximate Omega 6 from Food Labels

On the Nutrition Facts label, look under “Fats”.

See if it lists the “Polyunsaturated Fats” (PUFA).  Omega 3 and Omega 6 are both polyunsaturated fats.  Most labels will not list out the amount of Omega 6.  Since most foods have higher amounts of Omega 6 compared to Omega 3, I assume the total amount of “Polyunsaturated Fats” is the amount of Omega 6 in that food.

Diet, lifestyle and supplement strategy for cancer patients

 Here's a table that lists various principles to follow in fighting cancer, including various strategies on achieving them.

More on Vitamin D

The more I read about Vitamin D, the more convinced I am that it is far more important for our health. I can't help thinking that getting enough sunshine might be better than taking supplements. There might be something that sunshine does that goes beyond Vitamin D3 supplementation. Then again, a lot of the reports, including an MD I consulted with say that you cannot rely on sunshine for adequate vitamin D levels. Anyway, this is something to bear in mind.

Honey for oral mucositis

Honey is made by bees. Bees collect nectar, and carry it back to the hive. They regurgitate the nectar into the  cells of the honeycomb. They beat their wings to dry the nectar and excrete saliva into it. Their saliva contains enzymes that alter the nectar. Ultimately, what results is honey which possesses antibacterial properties - meaning that bacteria cannot survive in it. 

The question for cancer patients is: Does honey help against oral mucositis? I'll try to compile some relevant links to build a case for that.

L-Glutamine for oral mucositis

Radiation-induced mucositis is a normal accompaniment of radical radiotherapy to the head and neck area. Normally, the oral mucosa has a relatively high cell-turnover rate. Exposure to ionising radiation leads to mucosal erythema, small whitish patches and ultimately results in confluent mucositis. Mucositis is a result of imbalance between cell loss and cell proliferation. The intensity of mucositis can be aggravated by chemo and/or radiation.
