Jane Plant’s is an interesting life story that should be of interest to all women. She’s both a well known professor and a geochemistry expert. She’s also a wife and mother. When she was 42 (back in 1987), this amazing woman was diagnosed with cancer.
She received an initial prognosis that said that this was the beginning of the end of her career and life.
But she didn’t have any plans of giving up or surrendering to this deadly disease. The cancer recurred four times but she was determined to fight it.
So what did Jane do?
She began following a groundbreaking dietary regimen. She also brought major changes in her lifestyle habits.
The result was that she made it through and continues to live today without any problems.
Her regimen has so many wonderful positive effects and today she is on a mission to tell women about the principles of it and to raise awareness.
Jane’s husband is an experienced and well known scientist. When she got her cancer diagnosis, he began his investigation of such low breast cancer rates in China.
It was based on his findings that contributed to the creation of the cancer-fighting technique which he recommended to Jane.
The method’s effects have now become popular.
Many have called it to be controversial, but that doesn’t’ mean that women should not have the right to choose their own treatment for saving their life.
Jane’s story: This is what she has to say
Her colleagues and friends from China sent her cards and letters, and some amazing herbal suppositories. Her husband received them and brought all of them to her.
The suppositories were meant for her breast cancer’s treatment. At first they were nothing more than something that could be laughed at for.
Jane first said to her husband that it must be some kind of magic that these things can protect Chinese women against breast cancer.
But then Jane began thinking – Chinese women don’t get breast cancer. Why?
Both the husband and wife combined their scientific backgrounds to get to some logical explanation. They began studying scientific data. They were soon studying fat percentage in diets.
According to research (during the 1980s), fat contributed to around 14% of the calories found in the average Chinese diet. on the other hand, the western diet had 36% of fat.
However, Jane was consuming low-fat diet before she developed the cancer. her diet was full of fibers too.
Because she’s a scientist, she also knew that taking fats doesn’t increase the chances of breast cancer in adults.
Then one day when Peter and Jane were doing their research with a few others, someone said that the Chinese don’t consume dairy produce.
This was something she didn’t think of earlier. This really surprised her and also made her happy. The group felt that they were really onto something big.
Then Jane started remembering that her close Chinese friends used to tell her that milk was something that was meant only for the babies. When she offered them the cheese course, they didn’t take it. This also included those who are unable to tolerate milk.
Jane checked in her circle of Chinese friends and found that no one used cow or dairy products even for feeding their babies. In fact, the Chinese think it is strange that people in the west are so obsessed with milk and dairy.
In the 80s, Jane received a large Chinese delegation comprising of scientists. This was after the Cultural Revolution had ended. The Foreign Office advised her and she asked the caterer to bring a pudding having more ice cream.
When they found what the pudding had in it, the Chinese scientists didn’t take it. This further confirmed her beliefs.
Jane claims that she has discovered that milk is at the root of a large variety of allergies. Almost 70 percent of the people on the planet are unable to digest lactose, the milk sugar.
This is why nutritionists have come to the conclusion that this is something normal in adults.
Even though she consumed a well-planned diet before being diagnosed with breast cancer, Jane was taking lots of dairy products, skimmed milk, yogurt, and low-fat cheese. This was her primary source of protein.
She was also eating lean and inexpensive minced beef. It comprised mostly of ground up dairy cow.
She says that at the time of her chemotherapy in her 5th case of the cancer, she began eating organic yogurts for her digestion and to help with the growth of “good” gut bacteria.
Suddenly, she discovered that in 1989 yogurt was found to be linked with ovarian cancer. Hundreds of women having ovarian cancer were examined at the Harvard University by Dr. Daniel Cramer. He made records of their diet.
So Jane dropped dairy products altogether from her diet. This included butter, milk, yogurt, and any product that had dairy in it.
She further discovered that so many produces which are used daily have dairy produce in them. this includes biscuits, cakes, soy, sunflower oil margarine, and commercial soups.
Jane also began examining her own situation in her 5th cancerous lump using calipers. She then plotted the results.
Even when her doctors were trying to stimulate and encourage her, she had all the experience to identify the facts.
When the first chemo failed to give any effects and her lump continued to have the same size, she stopped eating dairy produce. The lump started shrinking in jus days.
When after a couple weeks her second chemotherapy came to an end, she was not consuming dairy. She started feeling an itch in the lump in the neck. It began softening and then started losing its size.
When she studied the reduction in size of the tumor, she found that it was actually cured and not suppressed.
She spent 6 weeks without any dairy. Then she started to practice meditation for just 1 hour every day. The result was that the lump was gone.
It was nowhere to be seen. Since she’s a scientist she knew how to look for them. she also asked her husband to look for them but he also got the same results.
When she made her next visit to her cancer specialist at the Charing Cross Hospital, London, he wasn’t able to find the lump on her neck.
This left him stunned. When Jane told him about her treatment, he was all skeptical about it. But she claims that the specialist now makes use of maps of cancer mortality when giving his lectures and also asks his cancer patients not to take dairy.
After all these discoveries during her experience, Jane now understands how dairy produce and breast cancer are related. She says that it’s like the same relation between smoking and lung cancer.
It was this connection between the two that Jane believes to have helped her in curing her breast cancer. It helped in maintaining a balance in her hormonal system. It also helped in maintaining her breasts’ health.
It is surprising that though milk is natural it can lead to so many big health problems.
