Lung cancer healing

Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA) from fish and algae oils cure UPS

While Dr. Johanna Budwig did not advocate the use of fish (or cod liver) oil and preferred flax oil as the prime source of omega-3 fatty acids (see Budwig FAQ question 6 for the reason why), the following successful case study reporting the healing of undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (formerly called malignant fibrous histiocytoma)[1] of the lung is included here since it supports Dr. Budwig’s (and others’) thesis of the healing power of the ingestion of the right type of fats.

The Journal Nutrition & Cancer published a remarkable case study in volume 52, 2005, pp. 121-29:

A 78-year-old male was diagnosed with undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma with multiple lesions in both of his lungs. The patient refused the proposed conventional chemotherapy and chose a nutritional approach instead.

Centered around an increased omega-3 fatty acids consumption while decreasing ingestion of omega-6 fatty acids, his daily dietary intake was estimated at 15 g of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), with a ratio of linoleic acid (omega-6) to long-chain omega-3 fatty acids of 0.81.

Result: Slowly but consistently, the bilateral nodules decreased in number and size as revealed by pulmonary x-rays and serial computed tomography scans. No side effects from the ingestion of large quantities of fish & algae oils rich in EPA and DHA could be observed, and the patient continues to show no symptoms of cancer.

Addendum by Healing Cancer Naturally

Personally I don’t advocate the ingestion of fish/cod liver oil or any other foods based on the suffering of more highly evolved animal life forms, particularly for ethical reasons. Also compare Vegetarians live longer.


1 A soft tissue sarcoma that usually occurs in the limbs, most commonly the legs, and may also occur in the abdomen or as in the case above, in the lungs.
