• a chemo-free survivor’s health blog

    Hi!
    My name is Chris Wark, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer in 2003, at 26 years old. Instead of chemo, I changed my diet and did every alternative therapy I could find. Now nearly 7 years later by the grace of God, I'm alive and kicking; and cancer free!!!
    I started writing to share my story; my discoveries about health and wellness; and what I did to beat cancer.
    I have so much awesome stuff to share with you, I can't wait to get it all on here.

Freakonomics and Cancer Treatment

Economist Steven Levitt and writer Stephen Dubner are two awesome dudes who teamed up to write two of my favorite books in the last few years: Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics.  They use research and statistical analysis to solve some of the most complex riddles of modern life.  Absolutely fascinating stuff. I was thrilled to discover in … Continue reading

Corn: not a vegetable, not healthy

Although most folks think of corn as a vegetable, it’s actually a high starch grain. And you may be surprised to know that it has very little health benefit compared to other produce, which is why we don’t really eat much of it anymore in our house. King Corn is a independent documentary film about … Continue reading

Coconut Fruit Smoothie Video

Ok so after several requests I decided to shoot a quick video on the raw vegan coconut fruit smoothie I drank everyday as part of my anti-cancer diet.

Nuts for Coconuts!!!

One of the healthiest foods you aren’t eating is the coconut, and no, Almond Joys don’t count.  I ate coconuts everyday as part of my anti-cancer diet. Now you may have had a pina colada, or coconut in a dish at some point, but very few people I’ve met have ever actually eaten a fresh … Continue reading
