Use this food chart to see at a glance
the mineral balance of a varity of common foods grown or
produced mainly in Australia or the United Kingdom.
Each food was analysed by chemists, who
measured the number of grams of each major mineral present
per 100g in a representitive sample of the food. Our Phosphorous
rating is derived from this.
In the chart, foods are ranked by the dominance
of this very active and elusive acidic mineral, and accordingly
coloured red, yellow or green.
RED means excessive
YELLOW means an elevated
GREEN is balanced, making
the food generally safe to eat in quantity.
Phosphorus in the diet is an important
consideration because too much in food or drink may be very
unhelpful to the sick. Using the chemists' official data,
we took the weight of phosphorus and divided by the sum
of all the alkali minerals present for each food, and expressed
this as a percentage, based on advice from Percy Weston,
author of the book, Cancer: Cause & Cure (Bookbin Publishing).
[Some foods appear more than once in the chart with different
ratios, usually within the same colour range. This indicates
varying mineral content according to preparation or country
of origin. Also mineral content of any food can be expected
to vary according to seasonal factors, growing method (commercial
or organic) and how processed. More detailed mineral tables
giving the country of origin will be published in the second
edition of Cancer? Fighting Foods later this year.]
Percy recommends that people with
cancer and arthritis:
Avoidfoods coded red [82% to 100%]
which have excessive phosphorus (or lack enough balancing
Be wary of over?consumingfoods codedyellow
[80% to 83%].
Consciously develop a preferencefor
the "safe "foods coded green [3% to 76%].
Phosphorus is mostly eliminated in the urine, so drink as
much warm water as possible on arising. Fasting cuts of
total supply of phosphorus and should be part of any treatment
plan. Percy Weston recommends taking a double dose of his
mineral formula for the first week. Take rhomanga tablets,
based on Percy's powder, daily after meals and at least
once a week before bedtime. If swallowing is a problem,
you can convert a rhomanga tablet to a pleasant drink by
soaking it for 24 hours in a glass of water or lemon juice.
