Cancerous neuroplastic fibromatosis is one of the rarest
cancers --- and one of the deadliest.  The underlying
condition is neurofibromatosis, a condition that causes
multiple benign tumors to grow on nerves throughout th
body.  

Because the tumors from the underlying condition are so
numerous and can appear almost anywhere on the body
having nerve cells, once the tumors start to turn cancerous,
it is a challenge to treat them through conventional methods
using radiation and chemotherapy.  It is hard to pinpoint
exactly where the cancer started or has spread. For this
reason, the 5-year survival prognosis for those with this
particular form of cancer is estimated at between 5% and
11%

Cancerous neuroplastic fibromatosis can also cause tumors,
in the most common of evolutions, called neuroplastic
fibromatosis 1 ( or "neurofibromatosis Type 1"). These are
called "peripheral nerve sheath tumors" or neurofibromas,
according to a 2017 report by P. Sohier from Hospital Cochin
in Paris, France.

Approximately 30-50% of peoples with Neurofibromatosis
Type 1 go on to develop benign peripheral nerve sheath
tumors.  These tumors can transfrom into highly metastatic
malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors  in 5-10% of  
patients.

The overall survival rate of patients with malignant tumors is
poor, affirms T. Rosenbaum from the Duisburg Wedau
Hospital. Other neoplasias could include gastrointestinal
tumors, or leukemia.

A good way to confirm if you do have fibromatosis is by
multimodal imaging, better known as MRI. J. Salamon from
the University Medical Center in Hamburg recommends
multimodal imaging as the standard to identify nerve sheath
tumors in neuroplastic fibromatosis type 1. They provide a
comprehensive characterization of the growth pattern,
growth dynamics, and the extent of nerve sheath tumors.

Neurofibromatosis is thought to be, in part, a genetic
condition.

However, there are ways of slowing the disease. In addition
to surgery, and after consultation with the treating
physician, dietary changes can support recovery in some
cases.


We have scoured scientific studies to understand which
foods or spices can potentially help in addressing this
condition:


































1.
Curcurmin
      
Curcurmin is the active ingredient found in the rhizome of
turmeric.

According to a 2016 report by Neil V. Klinger and
researchers from Wayne State University in Detroit,
Michigan, curcurumin is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and
has antiproliferative properties. This makes the substance a
great attack against brain tumors. Curcurmin also has the
advantage of having low toxicity in humans, even in large
doses.

The chemical pathways in which cancer originates, grows at
the initial site and metastasizes to other sites are numerous.
A 2008 study from the University of Texas observed that
"most cancers are caused by dysregulation of as many as
500 different genes".

That study found that curcumin inhibits multiple different
chemical pathways that many different types of cancer use
to grow.

As the scientists noted, "Curcumin has been found to inhibit
the proliferation of various tumor cells in culture, prevents
carcinogen-induced cancers in rodents, and inhibits the
growth of human tumors in xenotransplant or
orthotransplant animal models either alone or in combination
with chemotherapeutic agents or radiation."

2.
Broccoli

The active ingredient in broccoli (and other cruciferous
veggies such as cauliflower) is called "sulforaphane".
Containing chemoprotective effects in several cell types, the
substance inhibits proliferation of human vestibular
schwannoma cells and NF2-derived cells in vitro, according
to a 2016 report by B.G. Kim from the Soonchunhyang
University College of Medicine in Korea. This means killing off
those tumor-cells or any other malignant ones that may
occur.

3.
Citrus Fruits

Tangerines, lemons, and grapefruit, all delicious and all
helpful in inhibiting the pathways cancer uses to start, called
"tumorigenesis". In vitro studies showed that quercetin, an
active ingredient in citrus fruits, decreases the proliferation
of human glial cells (tumor-causing cells located in the brain
and spinal cord).

According to a 2011 report by Anthanassiosis P. Kyritsis and
researchers from the University of Ioannina in Greece,
quercetin has a cytoprotective effect.

4.
Lamb

Now, as a vegetarian, I’m not a fan of eating small, cute
animals. However, many people have no moral conflict with
that. If you don’t, you can take advantage of the conjugated
linoleic acid that resides in lamb flesh. The substance was
shown to have antineoplastic activity, according to a 2004
study by M. Maggiora from the Università di Torino in Italy.

5.
Sunflower seeds (and Foods High in Vitamin E)

Studies on the effects of tocopherols, the most common and
abundant of which is vitamin E, have been quite positive.
Sunflower seeds are especially potent given their high
content of vitamin E, 66%. A 2006 study by M. Betti from
the University of Urbino Carlo Bo, In Italy, revealed that
vitamin E has a cytostatic effect which has a possible
chemopreventive role in gliomas.

6.
Dairy Products (and Calcium)

Oddly, this one has been shown to be applicable only to
women, not to men. (Sorry, guys.) In a 2001 report from N.
Blok Tedeschi from the Ohio State University, researchers
found an inverse relationship between dietary calcium intake
and gliomas. This was based on the San Francisco Bay Area
Adult Glioma Study, from 1991 to 1995, performed on 337
astrocytic glioma patients and 450 healthy controls.

7.
Fresh Vegetables  

Fresh veggies are good for you in general, but they seem to
be particularly good for brain cancer.

In a 1999 study, J. Hu and researchers  from the Harbin
Medical College in China looked at a total of 128
histologically brain cancer cases. Subjects were interviewed
to examine the influence of dietary factors in the disease,
and information was obtained about 57 food items.

After looking at the data, what the scientists discovered is
that fresh vegetables had the best odds ratio, specifically
Chinese cabbage and onions. They also confirmed the
protective effects of vitamin E products and calcium.

8.
Dark Yellow Vegetables

I am a pumpkin and squash fan. And if you are too, your
health is probably going to be in better shape. Dark yellow
veggies usually contain provitamin A carotenoids. In 2002,
H. Chen and researchers from Tufts University in Boston,
Massachusetts studied 236 glioma cases and 449 controls.
Inverse associations of incidence glioma were associated
with dark yellow vegetables.

9.
Beans

In Chen’s same report, beans were found to also have an
inverse relationship to gliomas. Good news for us
vegetarians and veggie lovers, who tend to eat a lot of
beans. This legume also has some great phytochemicals
within, to keep your brain safe.

10.
Cod Liver Oil (and other Vitamin D-rich Foods)

Now this is not one that most of us eat every day. However,
the quantity of
vitamin D will give you a neuroprotective
boost
.

Just one teaspoon of cod liver oil has over the 100% daily
required value of vitamin D. In-vitro evidence from a 1995
study performed by L. Magrassi and researchers from the
University of Pavia in Mattco, Italy, revealed that vitamin D
alone or with retinoids might be a potentially useful agent in
differentiation therapy of human malignant gliomas.
