A man in New Delhi, who had been previously diagnosed in 2012 with stage four colorectal cancer claims he cured himself of this deadly disease due to switching to an all vegan diet, consisting of only plant-based foods and no animal-based products.
Robby Mooberry, aged 43, was brought to the hospital due to a perforated colon caused by stage four cancer, that had begun to spread to other parts of his body including the bowels, liver and lymph nodes. According to his condition, this father-of-two was estimated to have only one week to live.
Doctors suggested a procedure to implant a colostomy bag, proceeded by an ileostomy, and two rounds of chemotherapy treatment in addition to radiation therapy.
Surprisingly, after enduring surgeries and his initial dose, the man took a pause to detox and rid his body of all these chemicals before continuing the treatment, with his cancer than having downgraded to stage 3A.
According to reports, Mooberry and his wife Amanda, who was also a vegetarian, began a vegan diet in November 2012 as studies have indicated a diet with sugars and processed food items can increase the growth rate of tumors.
Upon returning for the next scan a year later, his cancer had decreased by a whopping 80 percent total.
“I couldn't believe it,” Mooberry told the Daily Mail. “I was always a healthy person, I didn't expect it.”
Although Mooberry was overwhelmed by the results of his vegan diet, he explained to the Daily Mail he wouldn’t prefer people to associate his experience with an endorsement of the vegan diet.
“I'm not standing on my soapbox saying everyone needs to go plant-based and vegan,” he stated.
This husband, father, and Las Vegas bartender now celebrates five years of being cancer-free as he and his wife also tend to their 20-month-old twins. Mooberry also began running a modest cancer charity in order to help others who share his suffering.
