Johanna Budwig: German Scientist Who Created an Effective Anti-Cancer DietThe Budwig Diet for cancer has been around since the 1950s. But it is suppressed and inaccurately marginalized, sometimes even among alternative health writers and practitioners. Many have been skeptical of the Budwig Diet. Dr. Andrew Weil considered it “fanciful” and without sufficient recorded scientific evidence. Even Mike Vrentas of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation (ICRF) originally thought it was insignificant as an alternative method for curing cancer, at first. Fortunately, Mike Vrentas' views changed to the positive after deeper research into the science involved and testimonies from healed former cancer patients around the world. Vrentas and the CancerTutor are now advocates of the Budwig Diet along with several other alternative healing protocols. Though not the complete diet, the daily medicinal staple of the Budwig Diet does involve cold pressed organic flaxseed oil mixed with low-fat cottage cheese, originally quark, a type of cheese more common in Central and Eastern Europe than North America. This is not merely a fashionable South Beach type of diet for weight loss. It has cured thousands of not only cancer but other chronic and life threatening maladies as well over the past 50 plus years. The original flaxseed oil mixed into quark was not a culinary quirk presented by a “happy homemaker.” The Budwig Diet is the result of years of study by an esteemed German biochemist, Johanna Budwig, who was nominated several times for the European version of the Nobel Prize.
