Jane Plant’s is an interesting life story that should be of
interest to all women. She’s both a well known professor and a geochemistry
expert. She’s also a wife and mother. When she was 42 (back in 1987), this
amazing woman was diagnosed with cancer.
She received an initial prognosis that said that this was the
beginning of the end of her career and life.
But she didn’t have any plans of giving up or surrendering to this
deadly disease. The cancer recurred four times but she was determined to fight
So what did Jane do?
She began following a groundbreaking dietary regimen. She also
brought major changes in her lifestyle habits.
The result was that she made it through and continues to live
today without any problems.
Her regimen has so many wonderful positive effects and today she
is on a mission to tell women about the principles of it and to raise awareness.
Jane’s husband is an experienced and well known scientist. When
she got her cancer diagnosis, he began his investigation of such low breast
cancer rates in China.
It was based on his findings that contributed to the creation of
the cancer-fighting technique which he recommended to Jane.
The method’s effects have now
Many have called it to be controversial, but that doesn’t’ mean that
women should not have the right to choose their own treatment for saving their
Jane’s story: This is what she
has to say
Her colleagues and friends from China sent her cards and letters,
and some amazing herbal suppositories. Her husband received them and brought
all of them to her.
The suppositories were meant for her breast cancer’s treatment. At
first they were nothing more than something that could be laughed at for.
Jane first said to her husband that it must be some kind of magic
that these things can protect Chinese women against breast cancer.
But then Jane began thinking – Chinese women don’t get breast
Both the husband and wife combined their scientific backgrounds to
get to some logical explanation. They began studying scientific data. They were
soon studying fat percentage in diets.
According to research (during the 1980s), fat contributed to
around 14% of the calories found in the average Chinese diet. on the other
hand, the western diet had 36% of fat.
However, Jane was consuming low-fat diet before she developed the
cancer. her diet was full of fibers too.
Because she’s a scientist, she also knew that taking fats doesn’t
increase the chances of breast cancer in adults.
Then one day when Peter and Jane were doing their research with a
few others, someone said that the Chinese don’t consume dairy produce.
This was something she didn’t think of earlier. This really
surprised her and also made her happy. The group felt that they were really
onto something big.
Then Jane started remembering that her close Chinese friends used
to tell her that milk was something that was meant only for the babies. When
she offered them the cheese course, they didn’t take it. This also included
those who are unable to tolerate milk.
Jane checked in her circle of Chinese friends and found that no
one used cow or dairy products even for feeding their babies. In fact, the
Chinese think it is strange that people in the west are so obsessed with milk
In the 80s, Jane received a large Chinese delegation comprising of
scientists. This was after the Cultural Revolution had ended. The Foreign
Office advised her and she asked the caterer to bring a pudding having more ice
When they found what the pudding had in it, the Chinese scientists
didn’t take it. This further confirmed her beliefs.
Jane claims that she has discovered that milk is at the root of a
large variety of allergies. Almost 70 percent of the people on the planet are
unable to digest lactose, the milk sugar.
This is why nutritionists have come to the conclusion that this is
something normal in adults.
Even though she consumed a well-planned diet before being
diagnosed with breast cancer, Jane was taking lots of dairy products, skimmed
milk, yogurt, and low-fat cheese. This was her primary source of protein.
She was also eating lean and inexpensive minced beef. It comprised
mostly of ground up dairy cow.
She says that at the time of her chemotherapy in her 5th case of
the cancer, she began eating organic yogurts for her digestion and to help with
the growth of “good” gut bacteria.
Suddenly, she discovered that in 1989 yogurt was found to be
linked with ovarian cancer. Hundreds of women having ovarian cancer were examined
at the Harvard University by Dr. Daniel Cramer. He made records of their diet.
So Jane dropped dairy products altogether from her diet. This
included butter, milk, yogurt, and any product that had dairy in it.
She further discovered that so many produces which are used daily
have dairy produce in them. this includes biscuits, cakes, soy, sunflower oil
margarine, and commercial soups.
Jane also began examining her own situation in her 5th cancerous
lump using calipers. She then plotted the results.
Even when her doctors were trying to stimulate and encourage her,
she had all the experience to identify the facts.
When the first chemo failed to give any effects and her lump
continued to have the same size, she stopped eating dairy produce. The lump
started shrinking in jus days.
When after a couple weeks her second chemotherapy came to an end,
she was not consuming dairy. She started feeling an itch in the lump in the
neck. It began softening and then started losing its size.
When she studied the reduction in size of the tumor, she found
that it was actually cured and not suppressed.
She spent 6 weeks without any dairy. Then she started to practice
meditation for just 1 hour every day. The result was that the lump was gone.
It was nowhere to be seen. Since she’s a scientist she knew how to
look for them. she also asked her husband to look for them but he also got the same
When she made her next visit to her cancer specialist at the
Charing Cross Hospital, London, he wasn’t able to find the lump on her neck.
This left him stunned. When Jane told him about her treatment, he
was all skeptical about it. But she claims that the specialist now makes use of
maps of cancer mortality when giving his lectures and also asks his cancer
patients not to take dairy.
After all these discoveries during her experience, Jane now
understands how dairy produce and breast cancer are related. She says that it’s
like the same relation between smoking and lung cancer.
It was this connection between the two that Jane believes to have
helped her in curing her breast cancer. It helped in maintaining a balance in
her hormonal system. It also helped in maintaining her breasts’ health.
It is surprising that though milk is natural it can lead to so
many big health problems.

fight and win against her cancer.
