Hello--Thank you so much for this site. (I came here again to ask a specific question, but have found a LOT of other useful info as I normally do!)
My question: My dear friend, who has been vegan for more than 40 years---and VERY particular about his diet (everyone on this site would be impressed!) continues to follow a whole foods/plant based diet as part of his "treatment plan," as he has been diagnosed with metastisized prostate cancer. His wife (who also follows WFPB diet) and I are very curious about something. We've read and understand that cancer cells LOVE sugar; our question is that many cancer-fighting diets recommend things like potatoes (very much like Starch-Smart--which I love!). How do the healthy, whole foods, that convert to sugars in the body effect cancer cells? Should they also be avoided---or should they be more included? We've seen them included in many of the WFPB diets built for cancer-fighting abilities and this has confused us a bit. Could you clarify? Thanks so much!
