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 ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) 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 ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) 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 Tomato and Cabbage are recommended when undergoing Crizotinib treatment for ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). But Basil and Walnut are recommended when treatment changes to Lorlatinib. 

Similarly Neem Extract supplements are recommended with Crizotinib treatment for ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). But Docosahexaenoic Acid supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Lorlatinib. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)?

ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) is one of the different subtypes of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). In this subtype of NSCLC, mutation or overexpression of a gene called ROS1 is detected. The defects or aberrations or mutations in this gene can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors). ROS1gene mutations are prevalent in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). You can visit NIH for information on the prevalence of genetic mutations across cancers.

Diet for ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). 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 ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), cancer pathways or processes like Calcium Signaling, Heat Stress Response, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Inositol Phosphate Signaling, Extracellular Matrix Remodelling, RAS-RAF Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, DCC Attractive Signaling, Microtubule Dynamics, Small Molecule Transport, MAPK Signaling 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 ROS1+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.
