Is There A Link Between Diet and Cancer?


My grandfather and father died of cancer. I learn as much as I can so this dreaded disease doesn't happen to me.

Here are some quotes from an article titled, "The link between Cancer, Insulin Resistance and a Ketogenic Diet."

"Most cancer scientists have historically thought that cancer was a genetic disease, but only 5-10% of cancer is hereditary." - Dr. D'Agostino, Ph.D.

"The more I read the more I am convinced of the link between diet and cancer. A lot hinges around the role of insulin on stimulating factors involved in cellular division and metabolism." - Dr. Gary Fettke, M.D.

“The more I read the more I am convinced of the link between diet and cancer. A lot hinges around the role of insulin on stimulating factors involved in cellular division and metabolism."

"Apparently, cancer cells cannot use any other fuel for growth, except for glucose. Without glucose they starve to death. This theory is based on the Warburg effect, by Dr Otto Warburg, who won the 1931 Nobel Prize for discovering aerobic glycolysis - a defect in mitochondrial glucose metabolism that causes fermentation of glucose and diverts glucose away from energy production to cell growth. In other words, he discovered that cancer cells have defective mitochondria and thrive on sugar."

"So by limiting carbohydrates, we can reduce glucose and insulin, and thus restrict the primary fuel for cancer cell growth."

One out of every three people will be diagnosed with some type of cancer.

What are you doing to keep from being another cancer statistic?
