Anti-Quackery?

I tend to dismiss dietary cancer cure emails that get sent my way by well-meaning friends. A quick Google or check of Snopes.com usually reveals the silver bullet as a dud. But I enjoy TED talks in general, so when this one showed up today I gave it a look. This guy doesn't *sound* like a quack, and if they're to be believed, his test results are interesting. And hell, I could force myself to eat more strawberries, dark chocolate, and red wine if I really *had* to... :-)

Seriously, it sounds like there are already approved drugs using this principle, though not formulated for my specific cancer, and as he very reasonably points out, best results are to be had *before* your tumor is volleyball-sized.
