Highlights

No two cancers are the same, nor are they treated the same, and neither should nutrition be the same for everyone. Nutrition includes foods like pulses, vegetables, fruits, nuts, oils, herbs and spices. Also nutrition includes supplements which are high concentrations of foods or high concentrations of individual ingredients found in foods. For cancers like Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina when undergoing chemotherapy or when you determine you have a genetic risk for developing Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina because of MAML2 and F5 gene mutations, a very important question is “What foods should I avoid and what foods are recommended specifically for me?”. The other related question is “What nutritional supplements should I avoid?”.

There is no one answer to this question for cancers such as Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina which can be found through internet searches. The answer to the question is “It Depends” because the nutrition plan needs to be personalized for you. Nutrition should depend on the cancer indication, genetic information, adult or pediatric, staging, primary or secondary, advanced, metastatic, relapsed or refractory, ongoing treatments if any, nutritional supplements being taken, age and factors like gender, weight, height, lifestyle, allergies and food preferences.

In short – the process to answer questions like “Should I Avoid eating fruit Peach” or “Include fruit Naranjilla in my diet” or “Should I reduce consumption of vegetable Yardlong Bean” or “Can I take Thunder God and Curcumin supplements” is not as simple as internet searches. The process is very complex and answers are based on knowhow of genetics, action of treatments, active ingredients in foods and their associated biological action. Finally the answer to the nutrition question needs to be personalized for you.

RECOMMENDATION: PERSONALIZE YOUR FOODS AND SUPPLEMENTS TO SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA OF THE VULVA OR VAGINA, TREATMENTS, GENETIC INFORMATION, AND OTHER CONDITIONS.

The overall objective of personalized nutrition for Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina is to minimize foods and nutritional supplements which have adverse interactions with cancer molecular drivers and ongoing treatments. And identify those foods and supplements which have a beneficial action. Whenever there are changes in treatments or diagnosis – it is important to remember that your foods and supplements need re-evaluation. And the answers to the nutrition question could be different based on the new context.

RECOMMENDATION: UPDATE YOUR NUTRITION FOR SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA OF THE VULVA OR VAGINA, WHEN TREATMENTS, DISEASE STATUS AND OTHER CONDITIONS CHANGE.

The occurrence frequency distribution for these genes respectively is 33.3%, 16.7%, 16.7%, 16.7% and 16.7%. These tumor genetic details of Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina are mapped to molecular biochemical pathway drivers of cancer thereby providing definition of characteristic features of Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina.

Significance of Nutrition for Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina

All foods and nutritional supplements consist of a collection of one or more active chemical ingredients in different proportions and quantities. The action of some active ingredients in a food can have adverse interactions while other active ingredients in the same food may be supportive from the context of Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina. Hence the same food has good and not-so-good actions and analysis of combined effect will be needed to come up with a personalized nutrition plan.

For example Peach includes active ingredients Beta-sitosterol, Linolenic Acid, Vitamin C, Fisetin, Oleic Acid and others. And Naranjilla contains active ingredients Beta-carotene, Zeaxanthin, Vitamin A and others. It is likely that some of these active ingredients of the same food could have opposing effects and hence it is recommended to identify recommended foods based on analysis of all high quantity ingredients contained in foods.

For cancers like Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like Cell Cycle, Nucleotide Metabolism, G-protein-coupled Receptor Signaling, Extracellular Matrix Remodelling plays an important role in driving cancer growth. Similarly different treatments work via different molecular actions which should never be canceled out by your foods and supplements. The foods and nutritional supplements contain different active ingredients each of which have a specific molecular action on different biochemical pathways. Hence, eating some foods and nutritional supplements would be recommended with a specific treatment of Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina, while eating some other foods and supplements may not be recommended.

One common mistake when finding foods to eat or not – is to consider only a few active ingredients contained in foods based on internet searches and ignore the rest. Because different active ingredients contained in foods may have opposing effects on relevant biochemical pathways – it is recommended to consider all the high quantity active ingredients that are present in significant and much larger than trace amounts in the food.

For cancers like Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina, activation or inhibition of selected biochemical pathways like Cell Cycle, Nucleotide Metabolism, G-protein-coupled Receptor Signaling, Extracellular Matrix Remodelling plays an important role in driving cancer growth.

RECOMMENDATION: TO FIND RECOMMENDED AND NON-RECOMMENDED FOODS FOR SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA OF THE VULVA OR VAGINA – CONSIDER HIGH QUANTITY ACTIVE INGREDIENTS CONTAINED IN FOODS.

Foods for Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina undergoing chemotherapy treatment

In Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina – the genes MAML2, F5, NRG1, KMT2B and CASP8 have high occurrences of genomic abnormalities. Not all of these genes necessarily are relevant for cancer – though they have been reported. Some of these genes directly or indirectly end up manipulating different cancer related biochemical biological pathways. Some of the pathways which are relevant drivers for Squamous Cell Carcinoma Of The Vulva Or Vagina are Cell Cycle, Nucleotide Metabolism, C-type Lectin Receptor Signaling and others. Cisplatin is one of the chemotherapies used for cancer treatment. The intent of treatment is to negate or cancel out effects of biochemical pathway drivers Cell Cycle, Nucleotide Metabolism, C-type Lectin Receptor Signaling so as to reduce disease progression and inhibit growth. Those foods whose combined action of active ingredients support treatment action and do not enhance disease drivers are recommended foods and supplements which will be included in personalized nutrition. And similarly – those foods whose combined action of active ingredients is not supportive of treatment action but end up promoting disease drives will not be recommended in your personalized nutrition plan.

RECOMMENDATION: AVOID SUPPLEMENTS AND FOODS WHICH ARE NOT SUPPORTIVE OF CANCER TREATMENT ACTION AND RATHER ENHANCE DISEASE DRIVERS.
