Dr. Budgwig's Anti-Cancer Diet
by Robert Rister
necessary to cellular health as the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, nuts, and
plankton, and in less amounts in many other foods. Both omega-3's and omega-6's
are essential to repairing the oxygen transport system in the linings of cells. The
objective of her diet was simply to ensure that both kinds of essential fatty acids
were provided in the diet.

Getting the right mix of essential fatty acids is simple and inexpensive. Consuming up
to 3 tablespoons (45 ml) of cold-pressed flaxseed oil with 1/3 cup (75 g) of low-fat
cottage cheese daily provides the right balance of essential fatty acids as well as a full
range of amino acids and the body's daily supply of calcium. The mixture could be
made into a smoothie with fruit, and can be eaten all at once or in small servings
throughout the day. Dr. Budwig prescribed only very small doses of this mixture,
starting with just one tablespoon a day for her very sickest patients. She increased
the dosage up to at most 8 tablespoons (half a cup) for maintenance.

Cancer patients are often advised to make Dr. Budwig's mixture with raw milk. I
have nothing against raw milk, but I would caution to be very sure about the source.
The last thing anyone with cancer needs is a food-borne infection.

As you can read in Cancer--The Problem and the Solution, Dr. Budwig reported that
this simple addition to diet contributed to remission from many kinds of cancer,
especially cancers of the breast and prostate, although she cautioned that consuming
the flaxseed oil without the appropriate protein from cottage cheese could actually be
harmful. Dr. Budwig was also one of the earliest advocates of juicing, especially
juicing carrots, and supplementing with resveratrol. Most of her patients were so
advanced in their cancers that they had trouble taking even the small amount of
cottage cheese and oil she prescribed, so her diet did not emphasize prohibitions of
meat, eggs, and processed foods.

Dr. Budwig's diet is often incorrectly termed a "vegan" diet. Her diet is neither vegan
nor vegetarian, since it requires dairy products. Nor it is not a single-food
cancer-treatment plan. It is, however, a simple, safe, and often effective part of
natural support for recovery from cancer.

Dr. Johanna Budwig, who died in
2003 at the age of 92, was a
practicing physician in Germany for
over 60 years. In the 1950's she
noticed that people with cancer
whose diets were rich in foods
containing more linoleic and linolenic
acids lived longer and were more
likely to go into remission. Linoleic
and linolenic acids are found in many
nuts and seeds, notably flaxseed.

Dr. Budwig did not label fatty acids as
"good" and "bad." She noted that the
omega-6 fatty acids that abundant in
a diet of prepared foods were just as
