Hi,

IF your immune system is weak, ask your oncologist which precautions you have to take (for food preparation and other precautions ). This is important in order to avoid infections. Furthermore I don't know what is the best way of cooking in order to kill bacterias and preserve the anticancer properties of the food.

If your imune system is not weak, I read the situation is different. I read some vegetables have more anticancer properties if consumed raw, other cooked (but we have to choose the best way of cooking in order to have the most  anticancer properties of the food) and some other both cooked and raw. But I am not a specialist.

I am hoping that I will discipline myself to proper diet and exercise. I will be more careful about washing fruits and veggies from now on.

Hi Alain, thanks !

I've also read that steaming is highly recommended both for killing bacteria and to preserve nutrients and that raw food is hard on the spleen.  Actually, very lightly cooking food releases loads of vits and minerals which otherwise remain locked and not absorbed
