There three primary diet-related drivers of cancer progression:
(1) Increased blood glucose levels due to increased insulin resistance, (2) increased inflammation that depresses the immune system, and (3) increased activation of the gene transcription factor mTOR that drives tumor growth. An anti-inflammatory diet will decrease insulin resistance, high-dose EPA and DHA will decrease inflammation, and high-dose polyphenols will activate the SIRT-1 gene that leads to a reduction in the activation of mTOR.
