    New Evidence for Fasting Effects on Cancer Treatment – Three New Studies

    When I started looking into the research for cancer metabolism and it’s implementation for cancer treatment three years ago, there was lots of evidence that had been gathered from in vitro studies of cancer cells and from animal studies, but the number of studies that used humans (called clinical trials) were pretty scarce.  The area was too new.  But as I have written before, cancer patients facing treatment cannot afford to wait for the medical establishment to move at its sometimes glacial pace through the research process to its eventual conclusion of endorsing a practice based on the “evidence”.  The work of Dr. Valter Longo’s lab using fasting during chemotherapy…

    Mind Blown! You Have to Read This Book!

    I have just finished listening to Dr. Jason Fung’s newest book, The Cancer Code, just released five days ago on Nov 10. This is book three of his Wellness Code series, following The Obesity Code and The Diabetes Code. Dr. Fung is a nephrologist (kidney specialist) in the Toronto area who has deeply analytical mind for unravelling medical mysteries. He looks way past the surface of symptoms and diagnostic test results and delves deep into the root causes of disease, particularly the “chronic diseases of civilization” that are ravaging us now, but were relatively uncommon before the last hundred years or so. He has turned his attention this time to…

The occasional twinge or passing pain. The seemingly sudden tightness of your waistband that you attribute to overeating or monthly bloat. The feeling of fullness half way through your normal amount of food. Needing to pee more often or possibly constipation. Or maybe just feeling pooped when you shouldn’t be…

    Humans are High Level Carnivores – The Evidence

    I have just recently discovered podcasts. Holy cow! What a resource! I have also discovered, almost too late, that you want to download podcasts onto your phone when you are sitting at home on your WIFI, not stream them using your precious phone data. Ask me how I know… I have been listening to a podcast called Peak Human and just finished Part 45- a discussion with Dr. Miki Ben-Dor PhD from Israel, about “Humans Eating Fatty Meat for All of History”. It was a fascinating look at the evidence for our ancestral eating pattern being that of a high level carnivore. This is real biological science, not conjecture or…
