Before we start with this article, you should know that this is a real life story about the amazing professor Jane Plant. She’s a wife, a mother, and widely respected scientist, who was made a CBE for her work in geochemistry. But, unfortunately, she was struck by breast cancer in 1987 at the age of 42! So, her happy and productive existence seemed destined to fall apart.
But, the good thing is that, despite the disease recurring a further four times, Jane refused to give in. So, professor Jane Plant devised a revolutionary diet and lifestyle program that she believes saved her life and can cut the chances of other women falling prey to the disease. Jane’s husband, who is also a famous scientist, was also in China. And, guess what? Jane’s husband and his colleagues discovered what was the reason why Chinese people don’t get breast cancer. So, his wife started to use this method and she was able to win the battle with cancer. Jane and her husband revealed what’s this miraculous method. Just take a look at the article below to find out more about this. And, to be honest with you, I really think that her theory remains a controversial one – but every woman should read it and make up her own mind. Today, she explains her personal breakthrough. Jane explains about her fight against breast cancer and how she won. She also explains how to use the Chinese method. This is how the story goes…
This is the story of Jane Plant, a breast-cancer survivor:
“First of all, I would like you to know that my friends and colleagues from China have sent letters, cards, as well as some incredible herbal suppositories, so he brought them to me. These suppositories were sent to me to treat my breast cancer, and we actually laughed a lot about them. Well yes, and I even said that it should be considered to be a real miracle if it protects Chinese women from breast cancer.
So, to be honest with you, I still kept wondering – why don’t Chinese women develop breast cancer. Well, this was the main reason why I’ve examined this problem very closely. So, what we did – we actually blended our scientific backgrounds and tried to find a logical explanation. We started investigating scientific data which led us t to the percentage of fats in diets. Research has found that in the 1980s, fat made up only l4% of calories in the average Chinese diet, by contrast to the Western diet, which included 36% fats. Yet, before I developed this cancer, I ate a low-fat diet, rich in fibers. And, as a scientist, I am well aware of the fact that in the case of adults. The intake of fat does not raise the risk for breast cancer. And, one magical day, we we’re working together, some of us (I am still not sure who) got this brilliant idea: “The Chinese don’t eat dairy produce!” Well, to be honest with you, this was quite a shock, mixed with a great excitement and happiness in the same moment. We just felt we are so close to something big, and like all things were finally absolutely clear.
So, I started thinking about my close Chinese friends, who believed milk was for babies only, my colleagues, who always politely declined my offer for the cheese course, and the numerous people who cannot tolerate milk. And yes, this is also very important – I did not know anyone from China who used dairy or cow products to feed their babies. Namely, Chinese people find our preoccupation with milk and dairy rather strange. Back in the 1980s, I was entertaining a big Chinese delegation of scientists after the ending of the Cultural Revolution, and following the advice of the Foreign Office, we requested that the caterer provides a pudding with lots of ice cream. However, as soon as they understood the ingredients of the pudding, the Chinese politely refused it. Of course, we were delighted by the second portion we thus got.
Ladies and gentlemen, I was amazed! Why – because I’ve found that milk is the root cause of most allergies, and more than 70% of the world’s population cannot digest the milk sugar, lactose. Before I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I consumed a lot of dairy products, yogurt, skimmed milk, and low-fat cheese, and it was actually my main protein source. I also consumed inexpensive but lean minced beef, which was most likely ground-up dairy cow. And, while I was receiving chemotherapy treatment for my 5th case of breast cancer, I consumed organic yogurts to help with my digestion and support the development of ‘good’ bacteria in the gut.
But, I was shocked when I found that in 1989, yogurt had been related to ovarian cancer. Dr. Daniel Cramer of Harvard University examined hundreds of women with ovarian cancer and recorded their diets. Well, I was so glad that I’ve discovered this, because this made me give up dairy products completely, including milk, yogurt, butter, milk, and all kinds of products which contained dairy. All of the sudden, I discovered that numerous products we use daily, like cakes, biscuits, commercial soups, soy, olive and sunflower oil margarine, include dairy produce in some form.
And, in the meantime, I examined the process with my fifth cancerous lump with calipers and plotting the results. My doctors tried to encourage me and stimulate me, but I was experienced enough to recognize the real truth. Unfortunately, chemo gave no effects, and the lump remained in the same size! So, I removed dairy produce from my diet. This made the lump shrink in days! And, guess what – after 2 weeks, my second chemotherapy finished, I did not consume dairy, and the lump in my neck began to itch, then soften, and became smaller. Furthermore, I found that despite reducing in size, the tumor’s decrease in size was plotted on a straight line heading off the bottom of the graph, meaning that it was cured, not suppressed (or remission.
And, after 6 weeks (without any dairy products), I began practicing meditation for an hour daily, and out of the blue, I felt that my lump was missing. I was not able to spot it, and I was experienced in it, and actually discovered my 5 cancers on my own. So, I asked my husband to help me, but he wasn’t able to find it either. After 3 days, I went to visit my cancer specialist at Charing Cross Hospital in London. So, she checked my neck thoroughly, in particular, the area where the lump previously was and announced that he cannot find it.
And, guess what – my cancer specialist amazed by this discovery! But, unfortunately, when I explained my treatment, he was a bit skeptical. Yet, nowadays, I have heard that he uses maps of cancer mortality in his lectures, and even advises cancer patients to avoid dairy. But, from my point of view, I really understand the relation between breast cancer and dairy produce just like I understand the link between lung cancer and smoking. And, one more thing – I highly believe that my discovery of the link between the two helped my cure breast cancer, and maintain the balance of my hormonal system, as well as the health of my breasts. Well, ladies and gentlemen, you may find it hard to believe that such a natural substance as milk can actually lead to such health issues, but do not forget that I am a living proof of it.
