Photo cred - WeHeartIt *not actual woman\nCandice-Marie Fox was told by doctors that she had only 5 years to live after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer. According to The Mirror, she declined chemotherapy because she was convinced that it lead to the death of 2 of her loved ones because it weakened their bodies. She decided instead to take charge of her own health and set out to beat the cancer using food.\nThe first part of the plan was to stop eating meat and instead eat up to 3 pineapples a day in addition to apples, bananas, kiwis, grapefruit and lemons. Fruits such as pineapple and kiwis contain a protein extract called bromelain which breaks down certain protein layers of cancer cells. By cutting out meat from her diet, Candice's body saved a ton of every that could be used to fight off the cancer rather than digesting meat.\nPhoto cred - The Mirror of Candice-Marie Fox\nWhether it was luck or pure coincidence, one thing is certain Candice's cancer was almost completely gone within six months of her fruit and vegetable diet. She explained that stress, chemicals and animal products fuel cancer and so she got rid of all of them. She stopped using beauty products, stopped smoking, quit her job, started doing yoga and even left her husband when he wasn't being supportive.\nNow there is no actually evidence that this lifestyle nearly "killed" the cancer but it's pretty impressive nonetheless.
