  1. HELP!!! CBS has a show on here in Hawaii and it is all the food lies you have been debunking (A Climate for Change: Ketchup & M&M's). I will help any way that I'm able, but I don't know where to start. It is so sad and your movie needs the same attention (much more now that this damage is done).

  2. Very informative discussion. I have a problem with part of his definitions. The cancer cells have a problem/abnormality and they are reproducing and spreading with that problem. That reproduction is ultimately a gene based process, i.e. genetic. What he is saying that the roots of this problem and a key to stopping it is in cellular energy production/metabolism.

  3. There are few nutrients for which mitochondria actively sense the presence of. One of those nutrients is stearic acid which is a saturated fat. When stearic acid droplets are detected within the cell, mitochondria actively migrate to the stearic droplets and fuse together to form bigger and more complex mitochondrial structures. One could come to the conclusion that saturated fat is a preferred fuel of mitochondria.

  4. Two hundred years ago, almost nobody got cancer. Now one in three people do.
    Cancer has to be mainly caused by a modern environment. Synthetic foods, man made chemicals, unnatural toxicity combined with a weak immune system must be the primary cause. Before we had chemicals, cancer rates were low. Now that we do, cancer rates are high.
    Keep the man made chemicals out of your body, and strengthen you immune system. This should lower your risk of getting cancer.
    Here is what I do to lower my possibility of getting cancer:
    I eat real food.
    I don't eat vegetable oils..
    I don't eat processed foods with all of their food additives.
    I don't eat many vegetables because many of them are treated with pesticides.
    I don't use insect repellent.
    I don't breathe in toxic fumes.
    I don't use sunscreen. This can lower you vitamin D levels along with other beneficial sun chemicals, and contain chemicals.
    I get plenty of sun throughout the day, just like our ancestors did.
    I take 25,000 IU daily of vitamin D3. My goal is to keep my blood level of D3 over 100 ng/ml.
    I have goals, dreams and targets that I want to achieve with my life. I am a believer that purpose and having reasons to say alive will most likely improve your immune system(although I have no science to prove this. It's just a guess on my part).
    I'm not waiting for science to prove my ideas correct. I try my best to make my environment the same as a caveman when it comes to diet, exercise, sun exposure and avoidance of chemicals and toxicity.
    This is my evolution based, instinctive way to live my life the way our ancestors did before we had science and nobody got cancer, heart disease or other modern illnesses.

  5. Dr. Thomas Seyfried .. BRILLIANT .. not only should he be a household name .. but his work should be taught in all Medical Schools ✨
    With regards to GKI (glucose ketone index) .. Dr. Annette Bosworth, MD has created the
    (DR. BOZ RATIO = glucose / ketones) which allows individuals to track this at home via blood/glucose monitors ✨
    If under 80 (weight loss)
    If under 40 (improved immune system/autophagy)
    If under 20 (used for cancer – therapeutic ketosis protocol)
    Note: the “ForaCare blood/glucose monitor” has now included the Dr.Boz Ratio calculation as one of its features
