6:37 Cancer really is caused by damage to the mitochondrial respiration function of cells, leading to mutations which for years have been believed to cause cancer. A tragic misunderstanding of cancer.
9:58 Cancer needs two fuels: glucose and glutamine.
25:55 Once you know the biology of cancer cells, it’s easy to kill them
43:04 There are so many new non-toxic drugs that can be used for metabolic therapy combined with the ketogenic diet
My guest is renowned cancer expert Professor Thomas Seyfried. He states that the primary difference between a cancer cell and a regular cell is how they generate energy. Healthy cells take protein, fat, and carbs from the food you eat. These are combined with oxygen to produce energy. Tumor cells function without oxygen; they generate energy by fermentation. The two man fuel sources for cancer are sugar and glutamine, and the cells are dependent on large amounts of these two substances.
Cancer can be caused by many different insults to our body, which can cause genetic mutations. Currently, most medical professionals believe that mutations cause cancer. But Professor Seyfried over years has shown that free radical damage to the respiratory function of the mitochondria, the cell’s energy powerhouses, is truly the cause. When the cells can no longer respire for energy, they must get their energy by fermentation. Over 1,600 people a day in the US die from cancer as a result of this tragic misunderstanding of the nature of cancer.
If you can prevent free radical damage to the mitochondria, you can prevent cancer. Treating cancer requires taking away the tumor cells’ energy sources of glucose and glutamine. The ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting are excellent tools for taking away the glucose. Tumor cells can’t use ketones for fuel. Keto is then paired with the drug DON, a powerful glutamine inhibitor.
Professor Seyfried’s team has never found a cancer cell that can survive in the absence of glucose and glutamine, no matter the type of cancer. But there isn’t one hospital or cancer research center that’s using the combination of keto plus DON on people, despite an abundance of evidence of its effectiveness in managing cancer. Studies on mice have shown promising outcomes. But when the prevailing belief is that cancer’s cause is genetic not metabolic, most medical professionals focus on genetics. And DON isn’t readily available in the required amounts; plus, it’s considered toxic, although it’s truthfully not as toxic as some commonly used treatments such as chemo.
His team is working with medical professionals in countries who are more open to trying alternative treatments, and achieving great success. Cancer is all the same, no matter the part of the body in which it’s located. The ultimate measure of success is, can you keep this person alive and healthy using this alternative treatment?
There’s more in this interview that I urge you to watch, so you can learn what really causes cancer along with successful alternative treatment.
