Brain Tumor: Without knowing more details, such as what kind of tumor you have, it's size, and proximity to the foramina, it is hard to offer definitive advice. You might want to read http://en.Uuuwell.Com/mytag.Php?Id=4903 which does address diet. Consult with your neurologist/ surgeon for advice on drinking alcohol, smoking, and drugs to avoid. As for diet, this is still controversial.
