Breast Cancer Cure? Scientists have an idea for treating breast cancer which involves virtually starving the patient. Participants in the study will consume about 600 calories per day. One might ask, what is this supposed to accomplish? There are theories circulating out there that when you severely restrict a person’s calorie intake, the body goes into a survival mode, and all the bodily processes are channeled toward survival. There have been many studies dealing with calorie restriction as it relates anti-aging and life extension. Now they hope it may help fight cancer. This may be a good idea. At least it seems like a natural approach and doesn’t involve taking drugs, so it’s worth a try. Who knows, maybe it will work.
