Fasting Damages Cancer Cells

Sometimes the best medicine is a strong dose of nothing.

Fasting weakens cancer in mice

The article states: "Even fasting on its own effectively treated a majority of cancers tested in animals, including cancers from human cells."

Furthermore:  "without exception, "the combination of fasting cycles plus chemotherapy was either more or much more effective than chemo alone," said senior author Valter Longo, professor of gerontology and biological sciences at the University of Southern California.
For example, multiple cycles of fasting combined with chemotherapy cured 20 percent of mice with a highly aggressive type of children's cancer that had spread throughout the organism and 40 percent of mice with a more limited spread of the same cancer."

I like those odds!
