Broadcast features expert nutritional advice for cancer patients

Posted on January 20 2014 by Pat Killingsworth | 20,726 views

I was honored to be selected to host an on-air Cure Talk interview with oncologist and integrative medicine specialist, Dr. Donald Abrams Friday evening.  It’s a must listen for anyone concerned about nutrition and it’s impact on cancer.

Dr AbramsDr. Donald Abrams is a cancer and integrative medicine specialist at the UCSF Osher Center of Integrative Medicine at Mount Zion.  He has researched complementary and alternative therapies including mind-body treatments, botanical therapies, medical use of marijuana and traditional Chinese herbal remedies.  What makes all of this exceptional is Dr. Abrams is also Chief of Hematology and Oncology at San Francisco General Hospital.

Panelists questioned Dr. Abrams on a wide range of topics, from what to eat, which supplements to take and what foods to avoid.  Acupuncture, yoga, exercise and mindfulness were also covered.

Some of the advice applied directly to myeloma patients, including Dr. Abrams recommendation that people taking curcumin also use a supplement called piperine.  I’m running a post on this tomorrow.

Dr. Abrams extensively covers the “sugar feeds cancer” controversy, the use of antioxidant supplements during chemotherapy, whether or not to consume dairy products, and much more.

For example, been told to avoid drinking green tea while using Velcade?  Dr. Abrams doesn’t agree!

I have listened to the re-broadcast twice, and I plan to listen again.  I learn something new each time.

Here’s a link to the broadcast.  You really should check it out:

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat

    In the Q&A portion of his interview Dr. Abrams stated that the caution about using green tea with Velcade was based on an overinterpretation or misinterpretation of a 2009 article that appeared in the journal Blood (Golden, E.B. 2009. Green tea polyphenols block the anticancer effects of bortezomib and other boronic acid–based proteasome inhibitors. Blood vol. 113, no. 23. 5927-5937). His contention was that the level of the green tea polyphenols tested in the research were higher than those that would be seen in someone who was consuming green tea. But the conclusion of the article’s authors was that the levels tested could be readily attained by someone using supplements containing green tea extracts. There may be a legitimate disagreement among experts here, but unless it is resolved it seems appropriate to continue the caution against green tea for those of us using Velcade, especially green tea supplements and especially on infusion day.

    Dr. Abrams also reiterated the commonly-heard advice for cancer patients to remain as lean as possible. As is often the case things are a little different here in myelomaland and recent research cited in the Beacon reported that overweight myeloma patients actually had a survival advantage over those who were leanest at the time of diagnosis. That’s not a good reason to go out and buy a dozen custard cream donuts, but maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to condemn our “softer side”.

    For myeloma specific nutritional advice I’ll go with Danny Parker every time.
