Tips for Dealing with a Cancer-Compromised Immune System

Dear Friend,

When you're undergoing cancer treatment, it demands the full attention of your immune system, leaving the door open for bacteria and other germs to sneak in. Use these food-handling tips to reduce the risk of disease and infection.

Food Preparation

• Wash hands thoroughly with warm, soapy water before and after food prep and before eating.

• Keep foods at the proper temperature. Hot foods should be above 140° F, while cold foods should be below 40° F.

• Don't thaw proteins at room temperature. Use a microwave or place them in the refrigerator with a pan to catch drips.

• Defrosted foods should be used right away and never refrozen.

• Don't take chances. If any foods look, feel or smell strange, dispose of them immediately.

• Wash produce under running water using a vegetable scrubber. Don't use soaps, bleaches or other chemical cleaning products.


• Always use a clean spoon when tasting foods while cooking.

• Don't guess when cooking meat. Use a food thermometer for accuracy. Beef should be cooked to 160° F while poultry should be cooked to 180° F.

• If your microwave doesn't have a turntable, rotate the dish a quarter-turn a couple of times during cooking to ensure that food is evenly heated.

• When reheating leftovers, cover food with a lid or plastic wrap and stir frequently.

Big Pharma's Specialized T Cell Treatment May Be Too Toxic for Some Patients

Your immune system includes T cells, which are a subtype of white blood cells. CAR-T involves harvesting a patient's T cells, engineering them to recognize cancer then returning them to the patient's system where they are now better equipped to fight cancer cells.

So far CAR-T has had particular success against leukemia and lymphoma, with one study resulting in leukemia completely disappearing from 90 percent of the participants. The bad news is that some test subjects have developed serious side effects such as cytokine release syndrome, which can result in organ failure.

Could This Bacterial Molecule Stimulate The Immune System To Fight Cancer?

Lipopolysaccharide is unique to these organisms, so its presence has historically triggered a prompt and powerful inflammatory response. According to scientists, the pathway to this response dates back so far in the evolutionary cycle that it's nearly identical in all animals.

Over a period of two to three months, participants received an injection of G100 directly into the tumor, along with a course of focused radiation. The injected tumors stopped growing, shrank or even disappeared in 14 of the 15 patients, while tumor growth throughout the body stopped in six of them.
