Survivor Stories

Ann Cameron cured her stage 4 cancer with carrot juice, nothing else.


My name is Ann Cameron.
On Tuesday July 30th, 2013 I had a CT scan for malignant tumors in my lungs. On Thursday August 1st 2013, I got the results:

“No evidence of cancer.”

I believe from personal experience that carrots can cure cancer–and rapidly, without chemotherapy, radiation, or other dietary changes. I think carrots are worth a try for nearly everyone diagnosed with cancer, because the results show up very fast.

Here’s the history of my experience:


On June 6 I had surgery for a newly diagnosed Stage 3 colon cancer. I declined the recommended chemotherapy and felt better and better from that date. But six months later, on  November 6,  I had a CT scan followup that showed probable cancer in my lungs. 

The oncologist said I had  Stage 4 colon cancer metastasized to the lungs. Later I learned that the colon cancer surgeon believed the cancer in the lungs was unrelated to the colon cancer, an independent development. His reasoning was that colon cancer, even metastasized, grows very slowly, and the two lung tumors were growing fast.

The oncologist also said radiation wouldn’t help me. She recommended chemotherapy to retard my demise, but said chemotherapy wouldn’t cure the cancer. I asked the surgeon about my life expectancy. He told me that without chemo I probably had only two to three years to live–and not much more with chemo.

I was very distraught. I read everything I could find on the internet about alternatives to chemotherapy and radiation. I already had a list of twenty or so recommended substances that didn’t work, that my husband had tried for six months before dying of lung cancer in 2005.

I hit upon a letter on the internet by a California man maned Ralph Cole, saying that drinking the juice of five pounds of carrots daily had eliminated small squamous cell cancers on his neck, and that a few others had told him the juice had helped with a variety of cancers.  Ralph was very detailed in describing his own experience, and wasn’t selling anything or engaging in self-aggrandizement. On November 17, I started drinking the juice in the quantity Ralph recommended.

I Juiced 5 lbs of carrots per day

On November 27,  a PET scan confirmed the findings of the CT scan:  the presence of “spots,” swollen lymph nodules, and two small tumors in enlarged lymph nodes between the lungs,  each about an inch long by 1/4 inch diameter.  According to the radiologist ‘s report,  these tumors were “avid for sugar” and “rapidly growing.”

Drinking carrot juice, unlike some supplements that oncologists prohibit during conventional treatment, is perfectly compatible with simultaneous radiation or chemo; but I didn’t want the recommended chemo because I had researched and dreaded its side effects.  

So I had no chemo, no radiation, no other treatments, and no dietary changes beyond the carrot consumption, and continuing eating meat and ice cream and indulging in other dietary vices  (I don’t recommend ice cream for cancer, but only want to emphasize that drinking carrot juice was the only change I made in my life, besides gratefully accepting prayers and “good energy” from friends and asking for wisdom and help from Whoever is up there in the Beyond. 


On January 7,  after eight weeks on the carrot juice (a quart to a quart and one third daily) I had my first follow-up CT scan. It showed no growth of the cancer, some shrinkage of the tumors, and fewer swollen lymph nodes. In just eight weeks, the growth of the tumors had stopped.

It’s interesting that eight weeks is the same amount of time on carrot juice that it took Ralph Cole to eliminate  his squamous cell tumors.

For the next six months, until the end of July, 2013, I continued drinking the juice faithully every day, except when I was traveling. I used an Omega Juicer at first, which made about a quart of juice from the five pounds of carrots. Because of moving, I switched to a Champion Juicer, which made about a quart and a third from the same amount of carrots. Both juicers were effective. I made all the juice for the day in the morning, drank part, and kept the remainder in the refrigerator, drinking it throughout the day. Every month or so when I traveled, I would go three or four consecutive days without juice.

A CT scan at the end of March 2013 showed no growth of the cancer, no new cancer, no swollen lymph nodes, and further shrinkage of the tumors.

A CT scan on July 30, 2013 showed no evidence of cancer!

The swollen cancerous lymph nodes had returned to normal size and were stable.  I told my oncologist for the first time about my carrot juice treatment, saying I hadn’t told her because I thought she would be skeptical.  She said that she was sure that many natural substances are effective against cancer, but that she can’t recommend them because of the lack of formal studies and statistical support. 

My understanding is that M.D.’s must rigidly conform to recommending chemotherapy or radiation, and nothing else, lest they fly in the face of proven published research and cause a patient’s injury or death with unorthodox advice–which could get them a big medical negligence law suit.  So you can bring up carrots, or cabbage, or curcumin with your doctor, but even if they are interested, they are not free to to recommend these substances to you.

My oncologist recommended a new scan in six months, but in six months I’ll likely be in Guatemala where a scan involves drinking a lot of a very nasty-tasting contrast medium. So I’ve decided to wait a year to have the next scan. Meantime I will keep on with occasional carrot juice, and aim for less meat and ice cream, and more salads.

To reprise my progress: 

Two weeks after starting the carrots, there was no improvement.  

Eight weeks after starting the carrots, the tumors had stopped growing and were shrinking. 

Four months after starting the carrots, all the lymph nodes in my lungs had returned to normal. 

Eight months after starting, there was no sign of cancer anywhere in my body.


I believe that a newly diagnosed person like me, still in generally good health,  could safely put off  chemotherapy for eight weeks to see if five pounds of carrots daily, as juice, will halt the growth of cancer. If the carrots work, one might continue postponing chemo as long as the carrots continue to arrest the cancer and, one hopes, eventually eliminate it entirely. My latest CT scan  (July 30, 2013) proves this has happened for me.

The carrot cure also worked for Ralph Cole’s squamous cell cancers. I think they probably will work against a wide range of cancers. The effective ingredient in the carrots is falcarinol, which has been proved effective against cancer in lab experiments with rats and mice done in Denmark and the UK. Using carrots or falcarinol, Dr. Kirsten Brandt and colleagues in the UK have retarded by a third the growth of tumors in lab rats injected with a carcinogen. They have fed the rats and mice what proportionately in humans would be a pound and a half of carrots. Drinking the juice from five pounds of carrots daily, as Ralph and I have done, is a human equivalent dose more than triple what Dr. Brandt gave the rats.  I hope that many people and organizations will help fund her work, which so far has struggled to find strong financial backing.

Best wishes to all for health and happiness,

Ann Cameron

Comments from Chris:
I love this! Way to go Ann! Some health and healing cancer experts would probably view what Ann did as incredibly risky, only juicing carrots and not even changing her diet… but it worked! And hey, it’s hard to argue with results.

Also the fact the she refused chemotherapy is important. Chemotherapy drugs cause head-to-toe damage in the body, destroy your immune system, make cancer stem cells more aggressive, and can cause new cancers in the body.

Readers of this blog know that I recommend taking massive action and radically changing your diet and lifestyle to heal cancer, like I did, but Ann’s experience is encouraging evidence that sometimes small significant changes can produce big results.

Ann’s strategy is one that can be used by someone who cannot afford to do anything else and is looking for “the most bang for their buck”. This is also a good approach if you are trying to help someone with cancer who is stubborn and resistant to change. Drinking 32-40 oz of fresh carrot juice every day is really not asking much. If they aren’t even willing to do that, I would seriously question whether or not they really want to get well… And just to be clear, I am in no way implying that Ann is broke or stubborn. :)

    My book Curing Cancer with Carrots, in which I explain about carrot juice and reasons it cures cancer, got a great personal comment from the managing editor of an oncology journal: “I just finished reading ‘Curing Cancer with Carrots’. Wow, what a book. It’s now my favourite anti-cancer book, it’s so powerful and practical, I will recommend it to anyone I know who is diagnosed with cancer. Your story is amazing and I’m so glad you shared it through your magnificent book.”

    Hi Ann

    I just emailed you to your website. On this next Monday 11 I’m going to have a colonoscopy to confirm that I have colon cancer (let’s hope not), for all the symtomps that I had, and that I have already told you, in my personal message to you.

    Either way, I started to juice carrots like almost two weeks, and every time I drink them I feel SO MUCH BETTER, and I don’t even have diarrhea, neither my bowel sounds much, like when I wasn’t drinking it.

    Even my seeing has improve, because I was using a 0.25 glasses for tired eyes, and since I’m drinking carrot juice, I don’t feel like I need those anymore. That just make me think along with your testimony, and all the information on this page, that doctors ususally don’t recommend or prescibed fruits or vegetables to help people’s diseases or little troubles, like the one I had with my tired eyes.

    My ophthalmologist straightly prescribed me multivitamin drops for my eyes, instead of recommending me to eat or drink carrots, that just have help me a lot more than his drops.

    I’m truly convinced that mother nature has all we need to cure. And that the current system based on making benefits, instead of helping people with easier and cheaper natural treatments it’s not the right path for medicine, and it’s actually pretty evil, because for example with cancer, it costs people’s life, and destroys them with their poisoning treatments.

    I will keep you, and all the people that is reading this updated with my situation. But IF I have cancer, I would like to ask you three questions:

    1) Did you make your carrot juice from a juicer or a blender? It’s the same both ways or not?

    2) Didn’t you have Hypervitaminosis A by consuming a lot of carrot juice every day? (That’s my principal worry right now with this treatment)

    3) Do you suggest me to do only juicing, and not surgery? (Regardless of the state of my POSSIBLE colon cancer)

    Thank you very much. I’ll wait anxiously for your awnser.

    I used both but mainly organic. Ralph Cole who also cured his cancer said it really does not make a difference. Make sure you give them a good rince :)

    • Ann Cameron

      Hi Rena, I hope you and Nigel are enjoying life and the best of health.
      I’m getting the next version of my e-book Curing with Cancer ready to publish, both as an e-book and as a print book in English and Spanish. Every day now the first version has sales.
      I’m including Nigel’s wonderful cure and your e-mails about it. I just would like to clarify one thing. Many times you mention having had “five pounds of carrots.” Am I correct that you juiced five pounds of carrots and Nigel drank five cups of juice a day–rather than he drank five pounds of juice–which would be nearly a gallon?
      Thank you for the offer of including his medical records, but we have decided not to include those.
      with best wishes, Ann

    I am unable to post this in the Success Stories for whatever reason, so I posted here. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on October 18, 2013. I was advised by my doctor that my only options were to get a prostatectomy or have radiation seeds implanted in my prostate or receive regular external beam radiation. I declined. I knew there had to be other options.
    I scoured the Internet and discovered a wealth of information about cannabis oil curing cancer. I was able to obtain some medical marijuana oil through Dr Palmer (Rick Simpson Oil) from it and consumed the recommended dosage by mid January. On January 26th I had a cancer reassessment which consisted of an MRI with a state of the art Tesla 3 MRI machine. Results – NO SIGN OF CANCER! CANCER FREE!One of the things that helped me while going through all this was reading the testimonials and the success stories of those who have used the oil and were cured And with good food diet. Now that this wonderful oil has cured me, I feel I need to let others know as well. Please feel free to contact me, ask anything
    should you like more information or directly contact Dr Palmer at: were i purchased from. Thank you, Arthur Mike ~

    hi Ann and everyone thought I would do an update on my mum. well she is still here after being given 12 months to live back in October last year and drs said she wouldn’t make it to Xmas this year they said to make last Xmas a good one else. well things were going good and then mum started having lower back pain which we thought may have been all the gardening mum was doing but Dr sent her off for a bone scan as he thought the cancer had spread to her bones and sure enough it has :( the scan picked up three areas of nets in the pelvic region I think one was there and now iI’m angry that the Dr didn’t tell her to get that one small area treated would have been one treatment. I don’t think it has spread anywhere else so maybe it can be treated I hope it’s not too bad. I guess maybe the carrot juice stopped working and I think k mum is ready to give up. she is in alot of pain and has lost her appetite again. maybe this is the beginning nine of the end for my mum :( I’m so scared. I was sohoping the juice would cure her… guess it ddoesn’t work for every one.. sorry I’m just so devastated and depressed that I tried so hard and failed my mum

      Dear Angela, I didn’t see your December 2014 on your mom until today. I am sorry the cancer has returned. I still think carrot juicecan help even if it doesn’t cure. Please keep in touch.

  • Ann Cameron

    Angela, you have done your very best for your mother. Thanks to you, she gained a year of healthy life able to enjoy her garden. Without carrots and your care, I don’t think she would have had this. I know that if you lose her, it will be very hard for you. But you are not to blame and all your work to help her live well hasn’t been wasted. Death has come to everyone who has ever lived…

  • angela

    hi Ann thank you for your kind words. Im not giving up on mum I will keep trying to help her and there are other things I can try… I still think that mum has alot of living to do yet even if the useless drs have given up on her cause they think she is too old… hate that.. will keep you posted

  • Rena
