Highlights

No two cancers are the same and neither should your nutrition be. When diagnosed with cancer or at risk of cancer – one immediate question is “What Should I Eat Differently Starting Now?” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid”. The answer is “It Depends”. It depends on which genetic mutations your tests identified. It depends on which cancer, which ongoing treatments and supplements. It depends on your age, weight, height, lifestyle, allergies and habits. The answer to “What Should I Eat Differently” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid” for BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) also requires understanding of how the food and supplements included in your diet manipulate the molecular pathways which are relevant for cancer and interactions with your treatment.

Internet search to find answers will never be personalized to your cancer type such as BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) and lifestyle conditions. Cancers are driven by biochemical pathways and therefore the answers to nutrition questions have to be based on molecular science irrespective of whether one understands it or not.  

For example foods like Cabbage and Turnip are recommended when undergoing Imatinib treatment for BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). But Cluster Bean and Artichoke are recommended when treatment changes to Dasatinib. 

Similarly Modified Citrus Pectin supplements are recommended with Imatinib treatment for BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). But D-limonene supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Dasatinib. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)?

BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) is one of the different subtypes of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). CML patients usually have either the Philadelphia chromosome, or the gene BCR-ABL. This defect can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).  BCR-ABL are prevalent in cancer Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). You can visit NIH for information on the prevalence of genetic mutations across cancers. (Reference: Steven N Hart et al, Hum Mutat,. 2020)

Diet for BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). Genetic mutations and cancer conditions cause specific molecular pathways to become disrupted. Hence, those foods and supplements are recommended which do not disrupt those molecular pathways further and instead reverse the disruption. For BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML), cancer pathways or processes like Noncoding RNA Signaling, Oncogenic Cancer Epigenetics, Cell Cycle, MYC Signaling, Chemokine Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, TGFB Signaling, Oxidative Stress, Hypoxia, Suppressive Histone Methylation and Growth Factor Signaling get disrupted. Choose those foods and supplements which contain active ingredients which cancel the molecular pathways disruption. Those supplements which interact with the treatments and disrupt the cancer molecular pathways further should be avoided.

The nutrition/diet for cancer such as BCR-ABL Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.

The nutrition planning for cancer from addon is not based on internet searches. It automates the decision making for you based on molecular science implemented by our scientists and software engineers. Irrespective of whether you care to understand the underlying biochemical molecular pathways or not - for nutrition planning for cancer that understanding is needed.

Get started NOW with your nutrition planning by answering questions on the name of cancer, genetic mutations, ongoing treatments and supplements, any allergies, habits, lifestyle, age group and gender.

Foods to Eat After Cancer Diagnosis!

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.


Cancer patients often have to deal with different chemotherapy side effects which affect their quality of life and look out for alternative therapies for cancer. Taking the right nutrition and supplements based on scientific considerations (avoiding guesswork and random selection) is the best natural remedy for cancer and treatment related side-effects.
