This reminds me of the classic tearjerker, John Gunther's "Death Be Not Proud." One of the things the desperate parents tried was a "cancer-starving diet" for their son, who had a terminal brain tumor. The book came out in 1949, which shows the idea has been around a long time.

There some exotic foods in there but most are every day foods like kiwi fruit, garlic, sourdough bread, wine and shrimp.
The video below is shorter the the previous one, and is on foods that help with anti-angiogenesis, foods that help cut off the blood supply to cancer tumors. At the end is a chart showing the effectiveness of cancer drugs vs. foods, and some foods are more effective than the drugs.
Can we eat to starve cancer?
