    The real myth is that eating sugar doesn’t feed your cancer

    I thought this article by Travis Christofferson an interesting read.
    It appears on Health Insight UK.

    If you haven't heard of Travis Christofferson, he is a science writer and a graduate of the Montana State Honors Program in molecular biology. He also has an M.S. in Material Engineering and Science from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. He is the author of the bestselling book 'Tripping Over the Truth: The Metabolic Theory of Cancer'. It gives an historical perspective on the re-emerging theory that cancer is triggered and driven by damage to mitochondria.

    He writes about Why the ketogenic diet offers real hope ...

    ... and also explains how ketones (packets of energy the body naturally derives from fat when carbohydrate intake is very low) have a number of features that are hostile to cancer

    Ah, good stuff. The ever dependable Amy Berger did a load of posts on the metabolic theory of cancer, and Richard Feinman and Gene Fine are currently doing some keto diet research. This could be a paradigm changer, and once again like Yudkin and Cleave it's a resurrection of past knowledge that was conveniently forgotten in the meantime.

    Firstly - thanks Chris for your comments.

    Secondly - Following on my post above (15 Feb) regarding Travis Christofferson - his 2nd post “How the ketogenic diet starves a tumour then genetically engineers the cancer cells.” is on Health Insight UK here
    http://healthinsightuk.org/2017/02/20/how-the-ketogenic-diet-starves-a-tumour-then-genetically-engineers-the-cancer-cells/


    But interestingly Dr Michael Eades has an excellent new post up, (well I think it is),  which you will see is linked with Travis ...

    Tripping Over the Truth
    Is Cancer a Metabolic Disease?

    It really is well worth a read - see what you think
