Your Health is Your Choice with Sara Troy and her guest Dr John Poothullill, on-air from April 19TH
If you are the parent of a child with cancer, the overwhelming multitude of questions, feelings, and associated anxiety is hard to contain. What caused the cancer? What can you as a parent do to help your child live through it? What is the future for your child?
In this insightful and thoughtful book, you will find information, hope, advice, and solace. Dr. John Poothullil expertly guides you to understand childhood cancer. He starts with his two new scientific theories to explain how the leading types of childhood cancers might occur, given that children have not lived long enough to develop the number of gene mutations that usually cause adult cancers.
You will learn how you as parents can care for your child with cancer with understanding and sensitivity, creating a loving home environment full of communal activities to reduce everyone’s stress and worry.
Most importantly, Dr. Poothullil explains why your child’s diet can be a key corollary element in controlling cancer along with the medical treatments. You will learn how a diet low in grains and grain-flour products slows cancer cell growth, giving your child’s immune system a better chance to contain it.

Dr. John Poothullil, MD, FRCP, has been investigating cancer for more than 8 years and food and nutrient intake for over 25 years. He is the author of three other books covering the topics of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
John Poothullill practiced medicine as a pediatrician and allergist for more than 30 years, with 27 of those years in the state of Texas. He received his medical degree from the University of Kerala, India in 1968, after which he did two years of medical residency in Washington, DC and Phoenix, AZ, and two years of fellowship, one in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the other in Ontario, Canada. He began his practice in 1974 and retired in 2008. He holds certifications from the American Board of Pediatrics, The American Board of Allergy & Immunology, and the Canadian Board of Pediatrics.
During his medical practice, John became interested in understanding the causes of and interconnections between hunger, satiation, and weight gain. His interest turned into a passion and a multi-decade personal study and research project that led him to read many medical journal articles, medical textbooks, and other scholarly works in biology, biochemistry, physiology, endocrinology, and cellular metabolic functions. This eventually guided Dr. Poothullil to investigate the theory of insulin resistance as it relates to diabetes. Recognizing that this theory was illogical, he spent a few years rethinking the biology behind high blood sugar and finally developed the fatty acid burn switch as the real cause of diabetes. Recently his own cancer diagnosis lead him to research cancer and childhood cancer.
The valuable extra material in the book includes simple instructions to do gardening and cooking as calming activities to enjoy life for children with cancer. Three superbly illustrated short stories that parents can share with their children are also included.
This book is for anyone who has cancer localized to a single site and not yet colonized in another part of the body. It is also for anyone who believes they are at risk of cancer due to heredity, lifestyle, working conditions, or for any other reason. Surviving Cancer is especially important for people with Type 2 diabetes, with or without cancer, to learn about the link between the two.
