Prince of Wales - Complementary Therapies and Cancer Care
Prince Charles, President of the Foundation for Integrated Health, has called for more research into the benefits of complementary therapies for cancer patients. At a conference on "Complementary Therapies and Cancer Care - A Research Symposium", the Prince said: "I know of one patient who turned to Gerson Therapy, having been told that she was suffering from terminal cancer and would not survive another course of chemotherapy. Happily, seven years later she is still alive and well. So it is therefore vital that, rather than dismissing such experiences, we should further investigate the beneficial nature of these treatments." There was some controversy over these words (see BBC News).

WHO: Global cancer rates could increase by 50% to 15 million by 2020
"From a global perspective, there is strong justification for focusing cancer prevention activities particularly on two main cancer-causing factors: tobacco and diet." (World Health Organization). In populations that prefer salty food, stomach cancer rates are high. On the other hand, a daily consumption of 500 grams (1.1 lbs.) of fruits and vegetables can decrease incidence of cancers of the digestive tract by up to 25 per cent.
