Gwyneth Paltrow Looks to a Mostly Vegan Diet to Prevent Cancer

It seems that the loss of 4 family members to cancer has made her re assess her diet.


Gwyneth laments impact of cancer on her family


February 20, 2007

Gwyneth Paltrow believes her family has been "cursed" by cancer.

The Oscar-winning actress lost her father Bruce to the disease in 2002, both her grandmothers and a cousin, who was only 23.

Gwyneth, 34, who is married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, is hoping her vegan diet will keep her healthy.

Speaking at an international anti-cancer campaign on Sunday night, she said: "I am challenging these evil genes by natural means. I am convinced that by eating biological foods it is possible to avoid tumours."

Gwyneth follows a macrobiotic diet, mainly consisting of whole grains, nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables.

However, she does have a treat once in a while.

Gwyneth said: "I'm not as stringent as I was in the past. Now I'll have cheese once in a while or white flour, but I still believe in whole grains and no sugar."
