I agree with Tressie.

There are excellent reasons why there is the specialty of oncology.
One of the reasons is that the things called "cancer" include HUNDREDS
of types of illnesses (and there are even more types if you add in the
non-malignant tumors). Different tumors and different malignancies
have their own nuances. In human oncology there are some with which
it can pay to reduce certain specific nutrients to stunt the growths, but
which nutrients can vary among the types, and some other types don't
need that. What meds work best also varies among the types.

There are no cure-alls in the world, and that is even true for subsets
like tumors or "cancer". What is good for one has the chance of not
being a good choice for another.
