Alternative Cancer Treatments

1979 Around January of that year, I went home to die.   ..cont. 
I was diagnosed with stage 2 stomach cancer, chronic bronchitis, acutely infected ovarian cysts, arthritis, sciatica, low thyroid, anemia and a heart condition. Besides that I had chronic ear infections and long-standing clinical depression. The late Dr. Harold Dick, N.D., known as a "naturopathic oncology pioneer" cured me in 5 weeks. It required the diagnosis (the Carroll Food Test) of digestive enzyme deficiency food intolerances which most people have and few know about, and it also identified the primary tissue salt deficiency, along with treatment with glandular protomorphogens to restore glandular health, and Constitutional Hydrotherapy to bring about detoxification, to stimulate blood circulation and the activity of the vital organs and to jump-start the immune system. It turned out to be the basic foundation of the most successful healing system I've ever witnessed.
1986 My 5-year-old daughter was forcibly vaccinated and immediately developed a flesh-eating infection so virulent that my husband and I became infected from contact. Naturopathic medicine brought us back from the brink.
Later that year we were introduced to escharotic cancer salves and treated a dog tumor, my husband's cirrhosis of the liver, various skin lesions, moles, fungal infections, and a lump in my thigh. It eventually helped clear up the remaining symptoms from my husband's flesh-eating infection after he was forced to submit to antibiotic treatment which made a mess of it. There was much more, gallbladder problems in 1999, adrenal deficiency 2001, injury in 2002, arthritis, diabetes, and other issues between 2003-2012, including glaucoma--cured.

This is why I research and write about alternative medicine. It's a debt.

The Origin of Cancer Cells

Warburg, Blass and Koch: Men With A Message.

"Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality." 1
"The scientists from Franklin to Morse were clear thinkers and did not produce erroneous theories. The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane." 2

Professor Warburg is director of the Max Planck Institute for Cell Physiology, Berlin-Dahlem, Germany. This article is based on a lecture delivered at Stuttgart on 25 May 1955 before the German Central Committee for Cancer Control. It was first published in German [Naturwissenschaften 42, 401 (1955)]. This translation was prepared by Dean Burk, Jehu Hunter, and W. H. Everhardy of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md., with permission of Naturwissenschaften and with collaboration of Professor Warburg, who has introduced additional material.

Otto Warburg, "On The Origin of Cancer Cells," SCIENCE,
(24FEB1956), Volume 123, Number 3191, pp. 309-314.

These quotes are the frank opinions of the "Father of Alternating Current"; a two time Nobel Laureate; and a nineteenth century German philosopher. Warburg, Blass, Koch and Tesla were men whose truths are becoming evident in today's world of science. These were pioneers and scientists of the highest magnitude. This abstract uncovers, postmortem, the discoveries of these men and their contributions to future scientific studies.

Otto Warburg won his first Nobel Prize in 1931 for the oxygen transferring enzyme of cell respiration and his second Nobel Prize in 1944 for his discovery of the hydrogen transferring enzyme. His discoveries are quoted above and as follows: "But, even for cancer. there is only one primary cause. Summarized in a few words, the cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar." 5


(Details on Dr. Budwig’s Protocol, Fats, Essential Fatty Acids and Related Subjects)
The basis of Dr. Budwig’s diet or protocol is the ingestion of a special oil-protein mixture in the form of organic cold-pressed flaxseed oil plus cottage cheese or “quark” (a dairy product readily available in German-speaking countries made from various types of milk and roughly similar to cottage cheese), to balance an oversupply of omega 6 fatty acids and hydrogenated fats in the Western diet and to provide an immediately available abundant supply of essential omega 3 acids. Of all plant oils, flax oil is the richest source of these omega 3 acids (100g of oil contain 72g of polyunsaturated fatty acids, 54g of which are omega 3 acids). This oil is combined with protein (or more precisely, sulphurated amino acids** such as liberally found in quark/cottage cheese) to allow the highly unsaturated fatty acids to become water-soluble, thus bypassing the need for a (often) diseased or impaired liver to break down the unsatured fat by its own efforts. Quote: “The lipotropic protein connections, e.g. Cystein, as they are found in ... cottage cheese or nuts are able to make water-soluble the ...highly unsaturated fatty acids in seed oils. And that is what matters. When you mix together ... cottage cheese and linseed oil in your blender the fat becomes water-soluble” and thereby immediately available for use by the body. In this manner, the necessary “spark plugs” are provided for cells to “breathe”, optimally detoxify and function, even more so when additionally combining the flax oil cottage cheese mix with an optimised sugar-free diet devoid of respiratory poisons [substances which inhibit cellular respiration] but containing much raw organic food (compare excerpts from Dr. Budwig’s FlaxOil As A True Aid and Nutrition page).
Dr. Budwig’s diet (which, when properly applied, is an entire protocol and involves not only ingestion of the above oil-protein mixture, but also a healthy vegetarian diet, sunlight, stress management, “Eldi” oils, etc.) has literally pulled people back from death’s doorstep.

cysteine water-solubility


"Sulfur-rich proteins combine with flax seed oil to create a new substance called a "lipoprotein." Studies have found that by feeding people with terminal cancer this oil-protein combination, the yellowish-green substance in their blood was replaced by the healthy red pigment, hemaglobin.
When flaxseed oil and sulfur-rich protein are combined, the ALA and the EFAs in the flaxseed oil become water-soluble and electron-rich which causes the cell membrane to become more flexible and fluid-like. The electron-rich fatty acids now allow for efficient transport of materials and energy between the inner and outer cell membrane. This is important to the health of all cells and to the entire immune system.
(A simple recipe for humans wanting to achieve these same cellular benefits is to add 1 to 2 teaspoons of ground flaxseeds to 1 cup of organic yogurt, preferably goat yogurt).

Witch Hunt or Cause for Concern? By Udo Erasmus

Background, and Abbreviations used in this Article:

EFAs: Essential Fatty Acids are substances from fats that must be provided by foods because the body cannot make them, and yet must have them for health. EFAs exist in two families: omega-3 (n-3) and omega-6 (n-6). From these two, the body can make several derivatives, hormones, and other active substances.

N-3: omega-3 fatty acids include

1. ALA (alpha-linolenic acid; abundant in flax, and present in smaller quantities in hemp, walnut, soybean, and canola); given enough ALA to start with, the body converts ALA into SDA, EPA, and DHA in various tissues, according to need; 2. SDA (stearidonic acid; present in a few exotic seeds);

3. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid; parent of Series 1 eicosanoid hormones; found in snake and fish oils);

4. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid; the major brain n-3; found in fish oils).

ALA: Alpha-Linolenic Acid is the (n-3) EFA. It is sometimes shortened to LNA. Others shorten it to ALNA.

ALA is very fragile to destruction by light, oxygen (air), and heat, and must therefore be protected from these destructive influences. If this is not done, ALA molecules are changed from natural and beneficial, to unnatural and toxic. ALA is destroyed about 5 times faster than LA, the n-6 EFA.

ALA is deficient in the diets of most people in affluent societies. Its intake has decreased to less than 20% of what was present in common diets 150 years ago, mainly due to decreased use because of its fragility.

N-6: omega-6 fatty acids include

1. LA (linoleic acid; abundant in safflower, sunflower, and corn; present in medium quantities in soybean, sesame, pumpkin seed, and almond; present in small quantities in canola, peanut, and olive); given enough LA to start with, the body converts LA into GLA, DGLA, and AA in various tissues, according to need;

2. GLA (gamma-linolenic acid; present in evening primrose oil);

3. DGLA (dihomogamma-linolenic acid; parent of Series 1 eicosanoid hormones);

4. AA (Arachidonic acid; the major brain n-6; parent of Series 2 eicosanoid hormones; found in meat, eggs, and dairy products).

LA: Linoleic Acid is the omega-6 (n-6) EFA.

LA is abundant in the diets of most people in affluent societies, its intake having doubled during the past 100 years due to increased use of corn and safflower oils. LA is sensitive to destruction by light, oxygen (air), and heat, and should be protected from these destructive influences. If this is not done, LA molecules can change from natural and beneficial, to unnatural and toxic.


In their frenzy to boost sales, manufacturers of flax oil have greatly promoted (perhaps even over-promoted) its benefits but have not addressed the down side of flax oil. Flax oil has benefits, but it also has shortcomings. Overlooked, these can lead to serious health problems. What are these shortcomings, and what are the problems that can stem from excessive use of flax oil?


A recent review article points out that prostate cancer is increasing, and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the Western world. The etiology of prostate cancer remains unclear, course and progression are unpredictable, and definite treatment is not yet established.

Lifestyle and diet could contribute to the progression from small, latent, non-metastatic tumors to clinically significant, invasive, metastatic lesions.1

Research on the involvement of fats and fatty acids in prostate cancer has been inconsistent. Most of the information available comes from epidemiological studies. Data from animal and human studies are limited.1

There is the further problems that results from animal studies, especially rats, cannot be automatically generalized to humans, because rats and humans metabolize fats quite differently. Also, rats don’t fry steaks, don’t use salad dressings and mayonnaise made with oils that have been highly processed, and don’t eat butter that has been exposed to light and air, sometimes for weeks. The reason I make this point will become clear a little later.

Studies done on cell cultures do not take into account the effects of fats on other organs that can affect tumor development and growth. In particular, some fatty acids up- or down-regulate the functions of genes, and it appears that some fatty acids also change the effectiveness of hormones even if they don’t change hormone levels present in tissues.

A One-sided View

Within this context, the suggestion has been made in published literature that flax oil should not be used because it can increase prostate cancer. The Prostate Forum2 lists six studies showing positive correlation between ALA (in serum, adipose tissue, and red blood cell membranes) and prostate cancer.

Of the six studies, one showed no correlation.3 One found a small (not statistically significant) positive correlation.4 Four studies found a strong positive correlation between ALA and prostate cancer.5,6,7,8 At least two other studies have also shown a correlation of alpha-linolenic acid with increased prostate cancer.9,10

According to Prostate Forum, several labs have found that ALA is one of the most powerful growth stimulants for human prostate cancer cells.2

The Prostate Forum has recommended against the use of flax oil by men with prostate cancer. Since flax oil is the richest readily available food source of ALA, the reasoning goes, this oil should cause the most prostate cancer.

Sources of ALA Used Studies that Support One-Sided View The ‘ALA’ in population (epidemiologic) studies comes from two main sources: vegetable oil, and red meat animal products. Both were shown to correlate with similar increases in prostate cancer.

In cell studies, chemically ‘pure’ fatty acids are usually used. The sources of ALA, the n-3 EFA that is 5 times more easily destroyed by light, oxygen, and heat than LA (the n-6 EFA), come from foods that have been treated with great carelessness. Let me illustrate this point.

In one of the epidemiologic studies,5 the sources of ALA were listed. They include red meat and bacon (both are usually eaten fried), salad dressing and mayonnaise [made from soybean and/or canola oils which have been destructively processed by degumming, refining, bleaching, and deodorizing (so-called ‘RBD oils’)], and butter (which is poorly protected from light and air between the time the cow is milked until the butter is consumed).

In addition, beef and butter contain trans- fatty acids, and these correlate with increased cancers including prostate cancer. One of these trans- fatty acid is Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) which is also sold as a supplement in capsules (see article on CLA on www.udoerasmus.com ).

Some Other Views

Interestingly, a study done with flax grain has shown that flax inhibits the growth of prostate cancer. 6 Another study showed that prostatic alpha-linolenic acid was lower in cancerous prostate glands that exhibited perineural invasion, seminal vesicle involvement, and stage T3 tumors.7

In a review article on n-3 fatty acids and cancer, the author makes the observation that the effect of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) on cancer depends on “background levels of n-6 PUFAs and antioxidants, and this could account for previously inconsistent results in experimental carcinogenesis.”

He also makes the observation that “n-3 PUFAs appear to be excellent substrates for lipid peroxidation in situations where an oxidative stress is involved, such as in the action of several cytotoxic agents in the treatment of cancer,”8

Other researchers found that the ratio of n-3/n-6 PUFAs decreased in the following order: normal, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and prostate cancer. This indicates that n-3 inhibits prostate problems. They conclude that the ratio of n-3/n-6 may have an important association with the benign and malignant statue of prostatic disease.9

Yet other researchers suggest that among fatty acids, the n-6 derivative arachidonic acid (AA), delivered in larger than normal quantities to prostate cancer cells in tissue culture by LDL cholesterol via over-expression of its receptor (LDLr), increases the activity of the cancer-related genes c-fos and cox-2. 10

In 1994, one review suggested that for prostate cancer, fat consumption should be decreased to 15% of calories. The antioxidants selenium and vitamin E should be supplemented, and a soy product should be used.11

Another study shows that the same n-6 derivative AA, stimulates growth and division of prostate cancer cells (both hormone-sensitive and hormone-insensitive) by increasing lipoxygenase enzyme activity (increasing inflammation). The researchers show that if you block this enzyme, the prostate cells self-destruct (apoptose) very rapidly.12 This could be achieved by inhibitor molecules, by decrease of AA in the medium (or diet), and by increase of n-3 fatty acids that inhibit the production of AA.

One further study showed a positive association between prostate cancer and animal fat, as well as the n-3 EFA (ALA). It also showed an inverse association between the antioxidant vitamin C and prostate cancer.13

A study in 1985 showed that GLA, ALA, AA, and EPA all killed prostate cancer cells in tissue culture, but did not affect the normal cells with which they were cultured. The latter continued to grow normally. When essential fatty acids were not present, the prostate cancer cells overgrew the normal cells.14

In 1991, the view from research was that diets containing high levels of n-6 fatty acids enhance tumorigenesis in animals, and that diets with equivalent levels of n-3 fatty acids diminish tumorigenesis.15

A 1999 publication concludes that the combination of fatty acids makes a difference. In this study, GLA, ALA, and EPA increase the death of prostate cancer cells. A slight increase of cancer cell death was obtained when ALA was combined with AA, OA, or GLA. But ALA with LA or EPA had no effect or even decreased prostate cancer cell deaths.16

A study with another prostate cancer cell line reports that GLA and EPA, which inhibit an important enzyme in carcinogenesis (urokinase-type plasminogen activator [uPA]), suppress cell proliferation (growth and division). Low EPA and high uPA levels have been reported in cancer. ALA, LA, and AA also suppressed cell proliferation in this study.17

Another study found that rats grow faster when vitamin E is given along with linseed oil (which is refined, bleached, deodorized flax oil), grow slower if linseed oil was given without vitamin E, and grow even slower in the presence of pro-oxidant.18

A study in women found that only ALA, but not saturates, monounsaturates, or long chain polyunsaturates n-3 or n-6, had a protective effect on breast cancer.19

A 1999 study found that mutation of the androgen receptor (AR) gene as a cause of prostate cancer is rare, and that over-expression of the AR gene seems to be the most common alteration in hormone-refractory prostate cancer.20 The question left unanswered is what causes this over-expression.

A study published in 2001 concludes that a high intake of both red meat and dairy products is associated with a two-fold increase in risk of prostate cancer. The reason for the association with red meat remains unexplained. 21

Another 2001 study found that a short term (3 month) low fat, fish oil (EPA and DHA) enriched diet increased the n-3/n-6 ratio in plasma and adipose tissue. Also, cyclooxygenase (COX-2) expression decreased in 4 of 7 patients. 22 COX-2 produces inflammation, which is involved in cancer.

Finally, a study found that DHA and EPA decreased expression of several genes that are up-regulated by androgen in LNCaP prostate cancer cells. They thereby reduced androgen-mediated cell growth of this prostate cancer cell line. DHA increased the proto-oncoprotein c-jun.23

Science has become so technical that we’re nearing the Tower of Babble, where everyone talks and no one understands. We get lost in a sea of details, lose our common sense, and only drug manufacturers, whose products suppress symptoms without effecting cure, benefit from the confusion.

It is not difficult to see that these various findings by researchers must leave most people confused. The problem with these studies is the isolation in which they are carried out.

In Nature, n-3 and n-6 EFAs are undamaged because they have not been destructively processed, and are accompanied by many other oil-soluble substances, including antioxidants, mineral, vitamins, phytosterols, lecithin, and more. Many of these substances have anti-cancer or immune-enhancing effects in the body. In the lab, substances are isolated into chemically pure forms, which are easier to manage, but in their effects on the body are far different from whole foods with their thousands of synergistic ingredients.

We should address the contradictory findings of the studies by applying some common sense. That is what we will attempt to do next.

N-3 related Causes of Prostate Cancer: Common Sense
EFAs are chemically very active molecules. They are required for vital functions in all cells and tissues. We cannot live withut them. They must be provided by foods.

The big question that begs to be answered is why substances that are absolutely required for health can at the same time give you cancer and kill you. It doesn’t make sense. So there must be other issues that are being ignored when professionals (untrained in nutrition), in this case of ALA and flax oil, issue an edict against their use.

Here are my thoughts on the issues that must be considered in trying to find out what is happening in the effects of EFAs in prostate cancer, and how to avoid or fix it.

1. Processing damage of ALA, the most fragile of essential nutrients, must be considered as a possible cause of increased prostate cancer. As ALA consumption increases, so does the amount of damaged, toxic breakdown products of ALA resulting from careless treatment of this essential nutrient.

Unless care is taken to protect ALA from being damaged and thus made toxic by light, air, and heat, health problems based on the toxicity of altered molecules of ALA should be expected to accompany ALA intake.

2. Pro-oxidants. According to one of the above studies, which compared high and low intakes of ALA in humans,5 the strongest risk factor was the consumption of red meat. Red meat is rich in iron, which along with other metal elements such as copper, has strong pro-oxidant action that can speed up the damage done to EFAs by light, oxygen, and heat. That’s true outside the body as well as inside the body.

Because of ALA’s far higher fragility, we should expect ALA to be damaged far more extensively than LA. As a result, far more toxicity should come from diets with higher ALA intake in association with pro-oxidants that lead to free radical formation and oxidation products.

Related information shows that red meat consumption correlates with increased cancer in general. White meats from chicken and turkey, which contain as much ALA as red meat does, show less of a correlation with cancer than red meat.

High fat fish, which contains more n-3 than red meat, and in the form of EPA and DHA, that are even more fragile to damage done by light, air, and heat, lowers cancer risk factors. And raw high fat fish, in the form of Japanese sushi or sashimi, correlates with the least cancer.

These findings do not provide proofs, but the trend is obvious. It suggests that ALA or the other n-3 do not increase prostate cancer, but that the n-3 molecules damaged during commercial processing and food preparation-cooking, frying, and especially barbecuing-may well be the reason for the increased cancer seen in some of the studies.

A question that is not often discussed is the effect of cytotoxic (cell-toxic) chemicals used in the treatment of cancer. Some of these appear to be able to damage (oxidize) n-3 fats when both are given to a cancer patient.

3. Antioxidant depletion. Research has consistently shown that increased intake of EFAs increases the need for antioxidants.(31) EFAs are high-energy fuel. In the body, they build a strong fire. A strong fire throws more sparks than a weak one. Those who fear the EFAs suggest that we should lower intake. That means, turn down the fire.

Taken to its logical conclusion, that would mean that we should put the fire out, because if there’s no fire (i.e. we are dead), there’ll be no sparks that can do damage. Then we need no more antioxidant spark control, because the fire's out. What would be the point of that?

A more viable solution is to make the strongest possible fire of energy (life), and to make sure that there’s good spark control. Antioxidant protection should accompany our increased intake of EFAs. N-3 fatty acids, being more chemically active than n-6, probably require a higher antioxidant intake for spark control. But higher n-6 intake too, requires more antioxidants.

The richest source of antioxidants is fresh green vegetables. They make hundreds of different kinds of antioxidants. The seeds themselves are also rich sources of antioxidants for their own (and if we eat them, our) protection. Oils made with health in mind contain natural antioxidants appropriate for their EFA content. Oils made with shelf life in mind have had these antioxidants removed. That's why synthetic antioxidants (BHA, BHT, and others) are added to replace the natural antioxidants that were removed by refining, bleaching and deodorizing.

And research has shown that 400-800mg of vitamin E daily reduce cardiovascular risk by over 75%,(32) while 200ug of selenium daily reduce cancer risk by over 50%.(33) These two powerful antioxidants, as well as zinc, manganese, vitamin C, vitamin A (or carotene), sulfur-containing amino acids, alpha-lipoic acid, garlic, and onions, all provide antioxidant protection to the body.(33b) Certain herbs, and mushrooms also help.()

4. Lack of Phytosterols. Phytosterols have been shown to inhibit many cancers. One of the pioneers in natural treatments of cancer, Dr. Emanuel Revici, worked from the hypothesis that lack of EFAs, and lack of (phyto)sterols cause cancer. He successfully reversed cancer with EFAs and/or sterols. His methods reversed the cancers of many patients, and Revici himself was a testimony to his own methods. He died a few years ago at the age of 102.

Unfortunately, much of his work is now lost.(34a) Phytosterols are found in the membranes of all cells of all plants, in seeds and in unrefined oils, but they are not found in animals. They inhibit sterol reactions: cholesterol, and the male and female steroid hormones androgen (testosterone), estrogens (estradiol, estriol, progesterone), and corticosteroids (aldosterone, cortisol, and others).

They therefore slow down the growth of steroid hormone-specific cancers, including some types of prostate cancer.

5. Too much ALA in relation to LA is another factor that needs to be addressed. N-3 and n-6 EFAs compete in the body for space on the enzymes that convert them into derivatives and eicosanoid hormones. Hence the ratio between them must be such that adequate amounts of both are converted.

A ratio of 2: 1 of n-3 to n-6 will do this. So will a ratio of 1: 4. In healthy people, a wide range of ratios is able to maintain health. In people with degenerative conditions, emphasis on n-3 seems to be more effective. That’s because n-3 intake has dropped to 1/6th of what people obtained in their diet 150 years ago, while n-6 intake has doubled over the past 100 years.

This problem can be caused by flax oil. Flaxseed, used as the exclusive source of fats in the diet, will eventually lead to n-6 deficiency. Both flax and flax oil have an n-3: n-6 ratio of 3.5 or even 4: 1. Using such a ratio will result in the n-6 EFA being crowded out from the enzymes. And that will lead to n-6 deficiency symptoms.

The list of n-6 symptoms is long but, relevant here, is the fact that n-6 deficiency leads to deterioration of immune function, which in turn can lead to increased cancer growth.24

A comprehensive list of n-3 and n-6 deficiency symptoms is found in the book Fats That Heal Fats That Kill. High n-3 with low n-6 can also be seen in other cancers. I have seen a reference in that regard for breast cancer.(35)

6. Other toxic materials that accompany EFAs can also affect cancers. For instance, antibiotics used in feeds end up in meat. These antibiotics can inhibit immune function.(36) Hormones and pesticides contained in meat, butter, and other dairy products can also affect cancer outcome.

In vegetable oils, the packaging can also be an issue. Plastics, which contain fillers, plasticisers, stabilizers, mould releasers, and other industrial chemicals may be able to dissolve in oils, and then have an effect on the body that accompanies the oil. Packaging oils in clear glass or plastic, especially those that contain n-3 (canola and soybean) is an antiquated and inadvisable method, because it exposes the oils to the destructive influence of light.

In some plastics, heavy metals like lead have been found. Carbon Black, a cousin of soot used to make some plastics opaque to light, contains PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) that form when carbon reacts with itself in a situation of incomplete burning. PAHs are carcinogenic.(37)

Oxidative stress from cell-killing (cytotoxic) chemicals-industrial (e.g. pesticides) or even pharmaceutical (e.g. drugs used to treat cancer and other conditions) can affect the action of n-3 (and other nutrients) in the body. Since n-3 are natural and essential, and drugs are unnatural and toxic, preference should be given to natural treatments whenever possible.

The practice of "complementary medicine", in which natural as well as unnatural treatments are combined, in such cases becomes "contradictory medicine". To be healthy, we must not poison our genetic program and its work, and we must give that genetic program the building blocks it needs to build a healthy body.

If we give our genetic program the building blocks it needs but poison it at the same time, we should not expect good health outcomes, because these two approaches contradict each other. We cannot poison our way to health.

The Cause of the Increase in Prostate Cancer: Research Authors of published studies have suggested several possibilities to explain the correlation of ALA with prostate cancer.

These include:

1. Oxidation products of ALA formed during cooking of meat;

2. Damage done to ALA molecules during processing;

3. Low ratio of LA: ALA (too little LA, which leads to breakdown of immune system function and therefore to increased cancer growth;

4. Lack of balancing molecules such as phytosterols and antioxidants, which are found in seeds, but are removed or damaged during processing and cooking practices;

5. Free radical formation from fatty acid oxidation.

6. ALA-based free radicals (resulting from processing) that can damage genetic material (DNA) and lead to tumor formation;

7. Decrease in the level of antioxidants, because they are used up to deal with ALA-based free radicals produced in the body;

8. Alterations in eicosanoid synthesis;

9. Changes in cell membrane composition, affecting permeability and receptor activity;

10. Interference with 5-alpha-reductase activity;

11. EFAs may increase steroid hormone production that is important in androgen sensitive growth. (Actually, EFAs decrease steroid hormones. Apparently they make hormones work better, and therefore smaller amounts of hormones are needed to get their normal job done.

Differences between Oils Made Without or With Health in Mind

I learned about the highly sensitive n-3 ALA in 1983. I have emphasized since that time that ALA should never be subjected to the destructive influences of light, oxygen, and high temperatures.

One or more of these destructive influences is involved during

1. Commercial and home frying;

2. Processing (deodorization) involved in the production of the cooking (RBD) oils that line the shelves of grocery, convenience, and health food stores;

3. Hydrogenation, a process used to make margarine and shortening; and

4. Partial hydrogenation of oils to make shelf stable convenience foods.

Damage done to ALA molecules by light, air, and heat can produce highly toxic unnatural molecules.24 ALA forms more toxic breakdown products due to processing damage than does the n-6 EFA.24

Destructive processing is likely the cause of some of the changes that lead to increased prostate cancer.

A more comprehensive story of how EFAs are damaged is found in the book Fats That Heal Fats That Kill.

What Should we Do to Protect our Prostate Gland?

Born in 1942, I’m in the age group of men that should pay attention to the condition of their prostate gland. I cannot give you medical advice or make decisions for you, but I can tell you what I do.

I do not use, and recommend against the use of flax oil except in combination with other, n-6 richer oils. It is a great source of n-3 but a very poorly balanced oil, deficient in the equally necessary n-6.

I abhor the use of plastics for packaging liquids (water, oil, milk, juices, alcohol, tinctures, etc.). Liquids move all the time, and continually wash the inside of their container. You can taste plastic in water. You won’t likely taste plastic in oils, but they are even more likely to drift into oils than into water, because oils swell plastics.

I do use and recommend an oil blend containing flax with sunflower and sesame oils from organically grown seeds, made with health in mind, and in the right n-3: n-6 ratio to prevent n-6 deficiency.

I do insist that my oil blend is packed in brown glass and further protected by a box to keep out all light.

I also use and recommend zinc, antioxidants, phytosterols, saw palmetto, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, anti-inflammatory herbs, and maitake extracts or mushrooms as part of a prostate nourishing nutritional program.

I use and recommend optimum intake of all components of health: 20 minerals, 13 vitamins, 8-11 amino acids, and 2 fatty acids; detoxifying fiber, digestive enzymes, and friendly bowel microorganisms; antioxidants; herbs (phytonutrients); filtered water; clean air; sunlight; and fuel.

I engage in and recommend physical activity (work or exercise) to stay fit.

I indulge myself in and recommend rest; recreation; the passionate pursuit of worthwhile goals; time spent with friends; a sense of humor; good balance between work and play; heart-felt gratitude; and faith in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t worry about ALA causing me prostate cancer. I use ALA on a daily basis, balanced with LA in my oil blend, as part of my program for health, along with lots of fresh organic green foods, proteins, support for digestion, and carbohydrate intake limited to the amount I burn.

ALA, after all, is essential for life and for health.

A protein, vitamin and mineral powerhouse, "flaxseed is one of the richest plant sources of alpha-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid in the terrestrial omega-3 ["good fat"] family, which has positive effects on cancer, heart disease, and inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis," said Barbara Lohse Knous, a registered dietitian and associate professor in the Department of Human Nutrition at Kansas State University.

"Omega-3 fatty acids are also found in salmon, sardines, walnuts and leafy greens. They can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by decreasing blood clots, keeping arteries open and lowering 'bad' LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels."

Flaxseed also rates as a superior source of fiber, which is linked to reduced cancer risk. Two-thirds of the fiber in flax is insoluble ("roughage") that is rapidly expelled, eliminating harmful toxins from the bowels in the process. One-third of flax's fiber is water-soluble, which helps reduce cholesterol levels and regulate blood sugar levels -- a plus for people with diabetes.

In addition to omega-3 and fiber, flaxseed is one of the best dietary sources of lignans, a type of phytoestrogen (natural plant estrogen), that may protect against cancers, such as breast, uterine and colon. "Studies suggest lignans decrease tumor production," said Lohse Knous. Depending on the variety, flaxseed may contain 75 to 800 times the amount of lignans found in various tested plant foods, including wheat bran, oats, millet, rye, legumes and soybeans.

Most recently, results of a Duke University Medical Center pilot study, published in the July 2001 issue of Urology, suggest that flaxseed, coupled with a low-fat diet, may help men reduce their risk of prostate cancer.

Liver function for weight loss:
Under Dr. Parcells's masterful tutelage, I first became acquainted with several innovative concepts, many of which later became the foundation of my Fat Flush Plan. The first revelation was the surprising connection between weight loss and the liver. I recognized early on what researches are only now beginning to understand - that not only is the liver the main organ for detoxifying pollutants and chemicals in the body, but this vital organ also is a hidden key to effortless weight loss.

Based on simple biochemistry and the charts from Gray's Anatomy, I learned first hand that one of the best kept secrets to weight loss and lasting weight control is keeping the liver, the key organ for fat metabolism, in tip-top shape. For example, bile, which is synthesized and secreted by the liver and stored in the gallbladder, helps the liver break down fats. Bile cannot do its job, however, if it is lacking certain nutrients that make up the bile salts or if it is congested or thickened with chemicals, toxins, excess sex hormones, drugs and/or heavy metals.

So I researched all the "liver loving" foods and nutrients that would enable the body to produce quality bile and aid in thinning it out. Since one of the primary ingredients of bile is lecithin - a highly effective emulsifier with a detergent-like ability to break up fats - I decided to experiment with adding lecithin-rich eggs to my daily diet. Soon, the addition of fresh lemon juice and water - a well-known bile thinner - followed suit twice a day. Not only did my own cholesterol come down (a good 20 points to be exact), but so did my weight.

Just to make sure I was onto something, I enrolled thirty of my clients in a six-week dietary exploration and instructed them to add at least two eggs daily to their current diet regimens and to add lemon juice and water twice a day - without changing anything else in terms of diet or exercise. Without exception, they all lost weight, especially around the waistline. In fact, one woman lost 21 pounds over the six-week period. I instructed the group to avoid caffeine and medications (including over-the-counter drugs) as much as possible because I suspected even then that these "drugs" were especially toxic to the liver.

All oils and fats are complex compounds called triglycerides. All oils and fats are a mixture of triglycerides with a different fatty acid attached. To further explain, an oil molecule is formed from one glycerin molecule and three fatty acid molecules. All fatty acid molecules are lipophinic and hydrophilic. Lipophilic means that it has a great affinity for oil. Hydrophilic means that it has a great affinity for water. The glycerin component of an oil or fat is an alcohol with three locations on its molecule where the hydrophilic molecule of the fatty acids attaches. The best oils contain essential fatty acids because these cannot be synthesized in the human body. The most important are linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids.

Additionally, MSM helps the body maintain a proper pH. Cancer, in most cases, likes an acidic environment. And MSM is needed to detoxify the body. Since the advent of inorganic fertilizers, our bodies are not getting enough nutritional sulfur.

Science has proven that fats play an important role in the functioning
of the entire body. Fats (lipids) are vital for all growth processing,
renewal of cells, brain and nerve functions. Our energy resources are
based on lipid metabolism. To function efficiently, cells require true
polyunsaturated, live electron-rich lipids, present in abundance in
raw flaxseed oil.

Lipids are only water-soluble and free-flowing when bound to protein;
thus the importance of protein-rich cottage cheese. When high quality,
electron-rich fats are combined with proteins, the electrons are
protected until the body requires energy. This energy source is then
fully and immediately available to the body on demand, as nature

“The theory is: the use of oxygen in the organism can be stimulated by
protein compounds of sulphuric content, which make oils water-soluble
and which is present in cheese, nuts, onion and leek vegetables such
as leek, chive, onion and garlic, but especially cottage cheese.”

"Flax Oil as a true aid against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer and other Diseases" by Dr. Johanna Budwig. She goes into great detail about why flaxseed oil is so important for our health and expecially these days when we eat many of the wrong kinds of fat - or no fat at all. You will learn why it is important to mix flaxseed oil with a sulphur containing protein like Quark (cottage cheese)...why we need the sun to activate the electrons found abundently in flaxseed (as well as other seeds)...why it is futile to buy ground flaxseed meal from the store since it goes rancid within 15 minutes of grinding, and much much more. Everything is well documented and explained. She's a scientist and loves her work!

The reason for the mixture of the oil with a high quality protein is that by combining the protein with the oil, the oil becomes water soluble and can be absorbed more readily. It can enter the smallest capillaries, dissolving any of the undesirable fats and cleaning out the veins and arteries. It
also strengthens the heart, dissolves tumors and cures arthritis."

Dr. Budwig mentions in the book that in vitro, if you combine for instance pig fat and Quark, it separates. She says however, fat and protein DO combine, but only in combination with highly unsaturated fats.

Dr. Budwig suggests to give the Quark/cottage cheese mixture a try for 2 or 3 days and see if it makes a difference. She is sure it will.

Dr. Budwig brings many scientific principles (Quantum Physics, electrons, magnetic field, etc.) into her discussions and experiments.

The review (linked below) gives an example of this: "If the body has the right balance of oils and proteins, it has a magnetic field which attracts the photons in sunlight and thus is open to the healing powers of the sun."


In her book, Dr. Budwig says that humans can only take in and store solar-electrons if they already have in their body's electron system either the same wavelength or a multiplicity of wavelengths. Refined food or food that lacks electrons, not only cuts off the oxygen itself but also cuts off the (beneficial) effects of the sun. However, seed oils - especially flaxseed oil - have a high amount of the electrons which are on the wavelength of the sun's energy. In addition, sunscreen (mostly Parafin in those days) can also
prevent these beneficial electrons from being stored in the body.

All oils and fats are complex compounds called triglycerides. All oils and fats are a mixture of triglycerides with a different fatty acid attached. To further explain, an oil molecule is formed from one glycerin molecule and three fatty acid molecules. All fatty acid molecules are lipophinic and hydrophilic. Lipophilic means that it has a great affinity for oil. Hydrophilic means that it has a great affinity for water. The glycerin component of an oil or fat is an alcohol with three locations on its molecule where the hydrophilic molecule of the fatty acids attaches. The best oils contain essential fatty acids because these cannot be synthesized in the human body. The most important are linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids.

Fatty acids are chains of carbon and hydrogen atoms linked together in certain ways with an acid, or carboxyl group, attached to their end. When three fatty acids are bonded together with a glycerol molecule, the result is a triglyceride. In lipid biochemistry, all fatty acids are classified according to the number of carbon atoms present in their structure, as well as the degree of saturation, or how many hydrogen atoms are bonded to the carbons. A fatty acid that has two hydrogen atoms linked up to each carbon atom is saturated; a fatty acid with two hydrogens missing is monounsaturated; and a fatty acid with four or more hydrogens missing is polyunsaturated. All fats and oils, whether of animal or vegetable origin, are blends of these three types, but with one usually predominating, depending on the food in question.

How does the body distribute essential fatty acids?
Essential fatty acids are distributed through the same vehicles that carry cholesterol throughout the body. They are found in chylomicrons, VLDL, LDL, IDL, HDL and the other carriers. In fact, a molecule of essential fat has to be hitched to a molecule of cholesterol to transport cholesterol in these vehicles.
Fat is carried in a watery system (our blood stream) by adding lecithin. Lecithin allows oil and water, which normally don't mix, to mix quite readily. This is because one end of the lecithin molecule is water-soluble while the other is oil-soluble. It therefore forms an interface between water and oil.
Proteins and minerals are also involved as carriers in the transport of fatty acids throughout the body.
Can you get too much essential fat?
When you get more than 12-15% of total calories as n-3s, there is a fat "burn-off" based on increased metabolic rate. Other than exceeding liver capacity and getting nauseous, or not sleeping because of too much energy because you took it too close to bedtime, it doesn't appear so.
