Eat your way out of cancer

An interesting article about a presentation by Dr William Li given at a TED conference states that red wine and dark chocolate can actually starve cancerous tumors. Eating cooked tomatoes can help men avoid prostate cancer. Blueberries, among many other foods, are also cancer killers.

From the article, this revelation:
“…pitted some foods against approved drugs and found that soy, parsley, red grapes, berries and other comestibles were either as effective or more potent in battling cancer cells.”
I read a recent study that showed that antidepressants (Prozac, etc.) fared only equally with placebos in controlled tests.

What are the big drug companies to do? Buy all the food processors and destroy beneficial foods? Declare that tomato, blueberry, grape and chocolate farmers are enemies of society? Make themselves the only legal dispensers of beneficial foods? Declare cancer a United Nations World Heritage Disease that deserves our respect and protection? Ban placebos? Buy a better class of Congressmen (fewer lawyers, more bloggers)? Commit hara-kiri?

Or simply go into the confectionery business and sell wine-filled chocolates. That gets my vote!
