I'm wondering if consuming an occasional glass of red wine (or even a beer) can make cancer progress faster? Also, what about occasional sweet treats and cheese. Everything I found online suggests that going vegan is critical in addition to avoiding alcohol and dairy. However, after reviewing Tall Allen's Vegan Schmegan post and the study he shared with us, it seems that diet restrictions have no bearing on PC. This is consistent with what my husband's doctor told me. Their advice was to keep eating like he normally does. Now is this also true for occasional alcohol consumption and sweets (say one glass and one treat a week)? My husband has gone six months with no sweets, no alcohol, and no meat whatsoever. I'm very proud of him, but my heart really goes out when I see him missing out on all the delicious occasional treats!
