High dose selenium is a new alternative treatment option. It is supported by
over 30 years of solid scientific evidence. The inorganic form of selenium, sodium selenite selectively kills cancer cells while causing no harm to normal cells. The effect is universal for all forms of cancer. The therapy has been clinically tested to be safe and very effective. Treatment can be administered by IV or orally. It is most effective if combined with a methionine restriction diet.

Mark: I am curious about the information on Methionine restriction - I saw other references to this and from what I could tell it appears to be a problem in the methylation cycle that leads to the proliferation of cancer, is this what you found? Could you expound. Good post btw.
Although numerous cellular mechanisms are involved in food intake, many investigations over the past decades have pointed out defects in the methionine metabolic pathway as cause of carcinogenesis. For instance, deficiencies of the main dietary sources of methyl donors, methionine and choline, lead to the formation of liver cancer in rodents. Methionine is an essential amino acid that must be provided by dietary intake of proteins or methyl donors (choline and betaine found in beef, eggs and some vegetables). Assimilated methionine is transformed in S-adenosyl methionine (SAM) which is a key metabolite for polyamine synthesis, e.g. spermidine, and cysteine formation (see the figure on the right). Methionine breakdown products are also recycled back into methionine by homocysteine remethylation and methylthioadenosine (MTA) conversion (see the figure on the right). Vitamins B6, B12, folic acid and choline are essential cofactors for these reactions. SAM is the substrate for methylation reactions catalyzed by DNA, RNA and protein methyltransferases.
Cancer cells bypass all cell cycle checkpoints. Restriction of specific amino acids
triggers apoptosis while normal cells become quiescent. There is clinical evidence that plasma methionine can be lowered sufficiently to trigger apoptosis
by dietary means. A methionine free protein drink was used. An alternate approach is to consume a diet designed to be very low in methionine and other
amino acids. The extreme form of this is a water fast. The next best way to
deplete methionine is the Breuss Juice fast. Another means to deplete plasma methionine is a fruit only diet. There is a doctor that is now using my methionine restriction protocol along with high dose sodium selenite. We will see the results very soon.
