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 KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ 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 KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ 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 Cucumber and Bamboo are recommended when undergoing Cisplatin treatment for KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). But Piper Nigrum and Sesame are recommended when treatment changes to Pemetrexed. 

Similarly Diosmin supplements are recommended with Cisplatin treatment for KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). But Neem Extract supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Pemetrexed. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)?

KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) is one of the different subtypes of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). In this subtype of NSCLC, mutations or aberrations of genes called KRAS, KEAP1 and STK11A are detected. The defects or aberrations or mutations in these genes can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).] KRAS, KEAP1 and STK11A mutations are prevalent in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). 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 KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ 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 KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), cancer pathways or processes like NFKB Signaling, MYC Signaling, Cell Cycle, Heat Stress Response, Apoptosis, Hypoxia, Glucocorticoid Signaling, Vitamin D Signaling, Angiogenesis, Sirtuin Signaling, Inflammation, Adherens junction, DNA Repair, WNT Beta Catenin Signaling, Replication Stress, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, DCC Attractive Signaling, Microtubule Dynamics, MAPK Signaling, Small Molecule Transport, Growth Factor Signaling, Oncogenic Cancer Epigenetics, Nucleotide metabolism, Cell Survival, Cancer Epigenetics, Amino Acid Metabolism, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Oxidative Stress, JAK-STAT Signaling and Hedgehog 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 KRAS KEAP1 STK11+ 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.

Personalized Nutrition for Cancer!

Cancer changes with time. Customize and modify your nutrition based on cancer indication, treatments, lifestyle, food preferences, allergies and other factors.


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.
