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 HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer 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 HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer 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 Amaranth and Bamboo are recommended when undergoing Methotrexate treatment for HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer. But Cluster Bean and Quinoa are recommended when treatment changes to Carboplatin. 

Similarly Docosahexaenoic Acid supplements are recommended with Methotrexate treatment for HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer. But Vitamin B3 supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Carboplatin. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer?

HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer is one of the different subtypes of Salivary Gland Cancer. In this subtype of Salivary Gland Cancer, mutations of a gene called HRAS 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).  HRAS gene mutations are prevalent in cancer Salivary Gland Cancer. 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 HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer. 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 HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer, cancer pathways or processes like NFKB Signaling, MYC Signaling, Cell Cycle, Apoptosis, Hypoxia, C-type Lectin Receptor Signaling, Vitamin D Signaling, Angiogenesis, Adherens junction, Replication Stress, WNT Beta Catenin Signaling, DNA Repair, RAS-RAF Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Notch Signaling, MAPK Signaling, P53 Signaling, RUNX Signaling, Cell Survival, Amino Acid Metabolism, 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 HRAS+ Salivary Gland Cancer depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.
