1. Background on this muesli

In 1978, I was diagnosed as having a virtually incurable cancer and was given an average statistical life expectancy of only two and a half years.

This diagnosis was made by a prospective cohort study led by professor Karl Lennert, who was working on lymphoma research in Kiel at the time. He sent the results to me personally. Today, this type of cancer is called mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).

As a rare B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, it was called centrocytic lymphoma at the time and had a poor prognosis. Two separate tissue samples, taken two weeks apart and examined in four institutions, confirmed beyond doubt that I had this disease.

Given the short life expectancy (even with the best treatment), I refused the recommended treatment completely. After I had thoroughly studied the course of the disease and chances for a cure, I decided to take my own path and work to fight the disease. Today, a bone marrow or stem cell transplantation can in rare cases save a person’s life.

At the age of 41 and with five children, I had the choice between a very early death and an alternative. I did not deceive myself with false hopes, but uncompromisingly set out on my own path — I never believed in sure success, but rather in the possibility of success.

I asked myself why lifestyle diseases were occurring more often and earlier in life, especially cancer. The answers to these questions would be too extensive for this article. However, you can find more scientifically based articles on the topic on the website.
