Excited about being introduced to Dr. Fuhrman's nutrition question is this: How can I best control cancer cells (colon and breast cancer surgery and still on chemo medication) when all the fruits, berries with seeds, and some vegies cause me diarrhea?

I eat bananas only after taking the seeds out. No brown bread nor fresh salad greens... can you hear my 85 years cry for help???!!!!
