Can cutting out carbs fight Cancer?

I was reading the blog of Dr. Michael R. Eades (of 'Protein Power' fame). He had a link to an on-line article by Time magazine that I found fascinating.

The article highlights cancer fighting research being done in Germany. Basically, the researchers are using a high-fat, no-carb diet to try to cut off the glocose supply to fast-growing cancers that have not responded to other treatment.

When I read Life Without Bread I found the chapter on how low-carb diets can fight cancer interesting. This article from Time backs up the Life Without Bread conclusions perfectly.

Take the time to read the Time article. It's definitely food for thought.

I had great success when I cut the carbs out of my diet. I didn't eat bread, pasta, rice, potatoes or sugar for over a year and lost over 60 pounds but then I ate a crouton and gained it all back. I know low carb eating works for me but I love all the starch and sugar. I'm gearing up to try to cut them out again. Thanks for the article.
