Reduction in smokingWhat are the root causes of cancer as a metabolic diseaseProvocative agents that increase the risk of cancer: chronic inflammation, age, carcinogenic chemicals, viruses, age, genes (like BRCA1)How to keep your mitochondria healthy to reduce the risk of cancer “Our genes are supremely capable of preventing cancer”Why he recommends periodic water fasting for mitochondria healthHow exercise helps support mitochondriaWhat ketones are and why they are a super fuel for the bodyHow to address the glutamine side of cancer cellsWhat glutamine-targeting drugs areWhy his approach is getting rid of cancer without the toxicityThe reason that traditional cancer treatment like chemo and radiation can be more effective when used with metabolic therapiesWhat he would do if he had cancer“We can reduce the death rate by 50% if you view the tumor as a metabolic problem rather than a genetic problem” – Thomas SeyfriedResources We Mention
