Introduction

Foods for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma should be personalized for each individual and also must adapt when cancer treatment or tumor genetic change. The personalization and adaptation must consider all the active ingredients or bioactives contained in different foods with respect to cancer tissue biology, genetics, treatments, lifestyle conditions and diet preferences. Hence while nutrition is one of the very important decisions for a cancer patient and individual at risk of cancer to make – how to choose foods to eat is not an easy task.



For Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma does it matter what vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds one eats?

A very common nutrition question asked by cancer patients and individuals at-genetic risk of cancer is – for cancers like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma does it matter what foods I eat and which I do not? Or if I follow a plant-based diet is that enough for cancer like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma?

For example does it matter if vegetable Yellow Bell Pepper is consumed more compared to Shallot? Does it make any difference if fruit Natal Plum is preferred over Sapodilla? Also if similar choices are made for nuts/seeds like Black Walnut over European Chestnut and for pulses like Winged Bean over Catjang Pea. And if what I eat matters – then how does one identify foods which are recommended for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma and is it the same answer for everyone with the same diagnosis or genetic risk?

Yes! Foods you eat matters for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma!

Food recommendations may not be the same for everyone and can be different even for the same diagnosis and genetic risk.

All cancers like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma can be characterized by a unique set of biochemical pathways - the signature pathways of Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma. Biochemical pathways like Apoptosis, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Inositol Phosphate Signaling, Chromatin Remodeling are part of the signature definition of Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma.

All foods (vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, pulses, oils etc.) and nutritional supplements are made up of more than one active molecular ingredient or bio-actives in different proportions and quantities. Each active ingredient has a unique mechanism of action – which can be activation or inhibition of different biochemical pathways. Simply stated foods and supplements which are recommended are those which do not cause an increase of molecular drivers of cancer but reduce them. Else those foods should not be recommended. Foods contain multiple active ingredients – hence when evaluating foods and supplements you need to consider the impact of all active ingredients cumulatively rather than individually.

For example Natal Plum contains active ingredients Apigenin, Curcumin, Lupeol, Lycopene, Phloretin. And Sapodilla contains active ingredients Apigenin, Curcumin, Lupeol, Lycopene, Daidzein and possibly others.

A common mistake made when deciding and choosing foods to eat for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma – is to evaluate only selected active ingredients contained in foods and ignore the rest. Because different active ingredients contained in foods may have opposing effects on cancer drivers – you cannot cherry pick active ingredients in foods and supplements for making a nutrition decision for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma.

YES – FOOD CHOICES MATTER FOR CANCER. NUTRITION DECISIONS MUST CONSIDER ALL ACTIVE INGREDIENTS OF FOODS.

Skills Needed for Nutrition Personalization for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma?

Personalized nutrition for cancers like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma consists of recommended foods / supplements; not recommended foods / supplements with example recipes which prioritize use of recommended foods. An example of personalized nutrition can be seen at this link.

Deciding which foods are recommended or not is extremely complicated, requiring expertise in Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma biology, food science, genetics, biochemistry along with good understanding of how cancer treatments work and associated vulnerabilities by which the treatments could stop being effective.

MINIMUM KNOWLEDGE EXPERTISE NEEDED FOR NUTRITION PERSONALIZATION FOR CANCER ARE: CANCER BIOLOGY, FOOD SCIENCE, CANCER TREATMENTS AND GENETICS.

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

Characteristics of cancers like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma

All cancers like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma can be characterized by a unique set of biochemical pathways – the signature pathways of Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma. Biochemical pathways like Apoptosis, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, Inositol Phosphate Signaling, Chromatin Remodeling are part of the signature definition of Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma. Each individual’s cancer genetics can be different and hence their specific cancer signature could be unique.

The treatments which are effective for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma need to be cognizant of the associated signature biochemical pathways for each cancer patient and individual at genetic risk. Therefore different treatments with different mechanisms of actions are effective for different patients. Similarly and for the same reasons foods and supplements need to be personalized for each individual. Hence some foods and supplements are recommended for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma when taking cancer treatment Dexamethasone, and some foods and supplements are not recommended.

Sources like cBioPortal and many others provide population representative patient anonymized data from clinical trials for all cancer indications. This data consists of clinical trial study details like sample size / number of patients, age groups, gender, ethnicity, treatments, tumor site and any genetic mutations.

ARID1A, PIK3C3, TERT, KMT2D and NTRK1 are the top ranked reported genes for Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma. ARID1A is reported in 10.0 % of the representative patients across all clinical trials. And PIK3C3 is reported in 10.0 %. The combined population patient data cover ages from to . 77.8 % of the patient data are identified as men. The Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma biology along with reported genetics together define the population represented signature biochemical pathways for this cancer. If the individual cancer tumor genetics or genes contributing to the risk are also known then that should also be used for nutrition personalization.

NUTRITION CHOICES SHOULD MATCH WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL’S CANCER SIGNATURE.

In Conclusion

Foods and Supplements chosen are important decisions for cancers like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma. Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma patients and individuals with genetic-risk always have this question: “What foods and nutritional supplements are recommended for me and which are not?” There is a common belief which is a misconception that all plant-based foods could be beneficial or not but would not be harmful. Certain foods and supplements can interfere with cancer treatments or promote molecular pathway drivers of cancer.

There are different types of cancer indications like Extraskeletal Myxoid Chondrosarcoma, each with different tumor genetics with further genomic variations across each individual. Further every cancer treatment and chemotherapy has a unique mechanism of action. Each food like Yellow Bell Pepper contains various bioactives in different quantities, which have an impact on different and distinct sets of biochemical pathways. The definition of personalized nutrition is individualized food recommendations for the cancer indication, treatments, genetics, lifestyle and other factors. Nutrition personalization decisions for cancer require knowledge of cancer biology, food science and an understanding of different chemotherapy treatments. Finally when there are treatment changes or new genomics is identified – the nutrition personalization needs re-evaluation.
