The whole back-and-forth of this issue, as in other areas, ultimately leads to,

that the general public has no idea how to act in this regard.

The following are a few examples from Macchiavellian practice.

"Today, there is clear evidence that links between poor diet and cancer are provable."

Dr. William Brown Thomson / Cancer: Is it preventable ?

"Recently, dietary errors have been blamed for causing cancer, but there is not a scintilla of evidence that the statement was true."

Dr. P.H. James A. Tobey
* Cancer: What Everyone Should Know About It

What an ashole ;-((

"Regarding the treatment of cancer, it is highly recommended to eat fresh fruits frequently, as well as fruits and vegetables, as they are rich in potassium."

Dr. John Harvey Kellogg * The new Dietetics

"There does not appear to be any realistic evidence that sodium, potassium, or magnesium salts are in any way related to cancer. .... Vegetable dishes have been blamed for causing cancer much more often than meat dishes.

David Brownlie * The Cause of Cancer

What an ashole ;-((

"Anyone who is willing to be clean inside by consuming natural foods and drinking lots of fresh water can prevent cancer. To this day, I've never had to operate on a person who ate a healthy diet."

Sir W. Arbuthnot Lane
