Highlights

Nutrition is the single most effective tool which cancer patients can control for managing cancers like BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia or Richter syndrome – hence it is important to identify those Foods and Supplements which are scientifically recommended for you. A frequently asked question is if foods like Milk are beneficial for cancer and along with which treatments? There is a mis-conception that all plant-based foods are good for all cancers and all of them are equal in terms of their benefits or their lack of. The reality is that some plant-based foods will be better than others for a specific type of cancer, treatments and other conditions. So Milk benefits will vary and the answer is contextual.

For example, grapefruit with certain medications is not recommended. Also spinach with some blood thinning medications can cause adverse interactions and hence intake should be reduced. For cancer, nutrition which includes food and supplements are important decisions which need to be made.

So are there types of cancer where Milk has more benefits? Yes! Milk is beneficial for Richter syndrome patients taking Vincristine treatment. But has adverse interactions for BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia patients on Pazopanib treatment.

For Richter syndrome along with Vincristine – biochemical pathways like Vitamin D Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling), NFKB Signaling, Notch Signaling (NOTCH1 Signaling) and DNA Repair (Non-homologous end-joining) are potential drivers of the disease. Milk has active ingredients which can manipulate these biochemical pathways to reduce the disease drivers and hence are scientifically beneficial. But for BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia along with Pazopanib – biochemical pathways like TGFB Signaling (TGFBR Signaling), Growth Factor Signaling (FGFR Signaling), MYC Signaling, Chemokine Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling) are potential drivers of the disease. Milk has active ingredients which can increase disease drivers like TGFB Signaling (TGFBR Signaling), Growth Factor Signaling (FGFR Signaling), MYC Signaling, Chemokine Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling) and hence intake should be reduced.

Similarly, eating Milk can have scientific benefits for healthy individuals who have a gene mutation in CDKN2A which suggests potential risk of cancer. This is because of biochemical pathways DNA Repair (Transcription-Coupled Nucleotide Excision Repair), P53 Signaling, Cell Cycle (Proliferation), DNA Repair (Global Genome Nucleotide Excision Repair) and Stem Cell Signaling. But reduce intake of Milk when at genetic risk of cancer due to mutation of gene KMT2C due to its manipulation of biochemical pathways Oncogenic Histone Methylation (Histone 3 Lysine 4 Methylation) causing cancer drivers to increase.

The takeaway being – for BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia, Richter syndrome and other cancers individual conditions can influence if foods like Milk are recommended or not. As conditions like ongoing treatments, supplements, habits and other conditions change; the nutrition plan must be re-designed and personalized. Whether BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia or Richter syndrome or other cancer types -, current treatments and supplements, age, gender, weight, height, lifestyle and genetic conditions are also key decision factors for creating a personalized nutrition plan.



Why is the choice of foods important for cancer?

Foods like Milk typically contain more than one active ingredient at varying concentrations. Each of these active ingredients like Vitamin D3 has a unique molecular biological mechanism of action. Cancer like most diseases is driven by specific biochemical pathways and molecular interventions of the pathway can be beneficial or create adverse interactions. Hence for BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia, Richter syndrome and other cancers there is a need to personalize which foods and supplements to take and regularly evaluate if foods like Milk are recommended or not.

So some of the example questions one may have related to Milk can be: Is Milk beneficial for me? Should I eat it when at genetic cancer risk due to mutation of gene KMT2C? Should I eat Milk when a mutation of a gene CDKN2A is identified? Should I eat Milk when diagnosed with BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia? Should I eat Milk when diagnosed with Richter syndrome? Should I eat Milk when on Pazopanib treatment? Should I continue eating Milk if my treatment changes from Pazopanib to Vincristine? Are the implications of taking Milk in Richter syndrome the same as BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia? And so on.

Milk and cancer

Milk contains a wide array of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, protein, healthy fats and antioxidants. Keep in mind that its nutritional content can vary depending on many factors.

Milk contains many active ingredients like Vitamin D3, Vitamin B2, Allantoin, Arbutin, Butyric Acid and many other Bioactives at different concentrations. The molecular pathways which are regulated by Milk include TGFB Signaling (TGFBR Signaling), Growth Factor Signaling (FGFR Signaling), Vitamin D Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling), Oncogenic Histone Methylation (Histone 3 Lysine 4 Methylation) and many others. These cellular pathways directly or indirectly influence cancer molecular endpoints like growth, spread and death. Because of this biological relationship – for cancer, choosing foods like Milk and supplements is an important decision to be made. And not necessarily the same food choices are scientifically best for all individuals.

Include Milk in my nutrition?

The answer to the question “Which Foods to Eat” and “Which Foods to Reduce Intake of” is dependent on multiple factors. Just like the same treatment does not work for every cancer patient, based on individual context the Milk may have scientific benefits or have adverse interactions. Along with which cancer – the ongoing treatments, supplements, lifestyle habits, height, weight, allergies and food preferences are all factors influencing answers to the question.

1. Any benefits of Milk for BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia with Pazopanib treatment?

BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia is known to have mutations in gene like RUNX1, ASXL1 and ABL1 and others which together cause biochemical pathway changes in TGFB Signaling (TGFBR Signaling), Growth Factor Signaling (FGFR Signaling), MYC Signaling, Chemokine Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling). A cancer treatment like Pazopanib has molecular action on a unique set of biochemical pathways . The treatment intent is to have a good overlap with the cancer driving pathways and reduce the disease drivers. In such conditions foods which can scientifically cancel out the treatment effect by reducing the overlap between the cancer driving pathways and treatment are candidates for reducing intake of or completely avoid. For example – in the case of BCR ABL Negative Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia and treatment Pazopanib – Milk is not recommended. Milk impacts pathways or processes like TGFB Signaling (TGFBR Signaling) and Growth Factor Signaling (FGFR Signaling) which can negate the effects of the treatment.

2. Any benefits of Milk for Richter syndrome with Vincristine treatment?

Richter syndrome is defined and driven by specific genetic mutations like MYC, TRAF3 and TP53 leading to biochemical pathway changes in Vitamin D Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling), NFKB Signaling, Notch Signaling (NOTCH1 Signaling) and DNA Repair (Non-homologous end-joining). Also treatments like Vincristine have molecular action on a unique set of biochemical pathways. Milk should be considered for Richter syndrome while on Vincristine treatment. Milk impacts pathways or processes like Vitamin D Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling) which can either reduce drivers of Richter syndrome and/or improve Vincristine treatment effect.

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

3. Any benefits of Milk for gene KMT2C associated cancer genetic risk?

Many companies offer gene panel tests for evaluating genetic risk to different cancers. These panels cover genes like KMT2C and many others associated with high prevalence cancers of breast, ovary, uterus, prostate and gastrointestinal system and others. The intent of the genetic testing of KMT2C is for diagnosis and/or to find out any potential risk factors for cancer. KMT2C mutation causes biochemical pathways or processes like Oncogenic Histone Methylation (Histone 3 Lysine 4 Methylation) to get impacted. Cancer molecular endpoints like apoptosis, proliferation and spread are impacted by pathways like Oncogenic Histone Methylation (Histone 3 Lysine 4 Methylation). Intake of foods like Milk should be reduced when there is a mutation of KMT2C for risk of Cervical Adenocarcinoma and Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Milk impacts pathways or processes like Oncogenic Histone Methylation (Histone 3 Lysine 4 Methylation) and creates adverse effects with KMT2C mutation.

4. Any benefits of Milk for gene CDKN2A associated cancer genetic risk?

CDKN2A is also one of many genes available in panels for cancer risk testing. CDKN2A mutation causes biochemical pathways or processes like DNA Repair (Transcription-Coupled Nucleotide Excision Repair), P53 Signaling, Cell Cycle (Proliferation), DNA Repair (Global Genome Nucleotide Excision Repair) and Stem Cell Signaling to get impacted. Cancer molecular endpoints like apoptosis, proliferation and spread are impacted by pathways like DNA Repair (Transcription-Coupled Nucleotide Excision Repair), P53 Signaling, Cell Cycle (Proliferation), DNA Repair (Global Genome Nucleotide Excision Repair) and Stem Cell Signaling. Intake of foods like Milk should be considered when Skin cancer and Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma risk is identified due to gene CDKN2A mutation. Milk impacts biochemical pathways or processes like DNA Repair (Transcription-Coupled Nucleotide Excision Repair) and P53 Signaling associated with genetic risk to CDKN2A mutation.
