Colon Cancer Survivor

18 years and counting

When you hear about Mr Masato Sakai’s cancer survivor story, you’ll be INSPIRED! Please share it with others so you can inspire them too.


In August 1999, he was diagnosed with colon cancer, which spreads to his bladder, prostate and anus.
He decided to opt for surgery:
– removed his bladder
– removed his anus
– removed 40 cm of his large intestine

Do you see two bags hanging onto his body? They are for his faeces and urine. 

After ALL the surgeries, he also underwent chemotherapy and what do you know? The doctors told him he had 6 months to live.
That’s when he decided to try natural supplements.
Of course, life is not that simple – he spent a lot of money on various types of natural supplements before he stumbled upon Super Lutein.
Why stumbled?
Well, he took Lutein supplements to improve his eye health 🙂

Isn’t that a lovely surprise?

His story is definitely an inspiring one for cancer patients.

If you’d like to know more about these lutein supplements please contact me here.


Did you know that different countries have different daily requirements for vegetables?


– In 2005, the Australian government launched “Go for 2+5” (SEVEN), meaning TWO 150g portions of fruit and FIVE 75g portions of vegetables.

The US abandoned the numbers in favour of a “fruit and veggies – more matters” campaign in 2007.

France and Germany

FIVE servings of vegetables a day are encouraged 🙂

Oyebode said she thought the Australian example was probably the one to follow.

“I think it makes a lot of sense,” she said. “It is aiming for more and the balance is two fruit and five veg. From our study it looks like vegetables are better than fruit.

But I don’t feel very strongly that the guidelines should be changed because the majority of people know they should eat five (vegetables) a day and only 25% manage that.

We are definitely in the 25% category but we went on a “real food challenge” in 2012 and wow, it opened our eyes and taste buds to a whole new world of FOOD!
