Book review


Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer by Thomas Seyfried

Thomas Seyfried presents a new approach to cancer that was first presented by Otto Warburg. Seyfried, a gynecologic oncologist, theorizes that cancer is not a genetic mutation, but rather the result of metabolic dysregulation.

The fact that we have not won the “war” against cancer raises the question: should we rethink our ideas? Seyfried says yes and suggests we look closer at mitochondrial dysfunction and respiratory insufficiency.

Seyfried’s treatment protocol involves eliminating the fuel for cancer, being glucose and glutamine. This involves implementing a ketogenic diet as one of the phases of treatment.

This book is appropriate for professionals and patients alike who are looking to view cancer in a new light.
