Treatment and prevention

Dr. Ron Rosedale proclaims that cell proliferation is actually a primary evolutionary action, fuelled by carbohydrate that was the only fuel that could be used by early life that necessitated anaerobic metabolism (because of the absence of oxygen). Cancer necessitates cells bypassing being fed by the body; obtaining their independent fuel source.

Independent research by Sloan-Kettering Memorial supports this view, finding that carbohydrate has double the risk of protein of promoting cancer growth, with fat having almost no effect.

Ketogenic diets have been found more effective than medication for controlling epilepsy; could they be a viable alternative for controlling cancer? Unfortunately mainstream therapy focusses on drug development that brings in the money.

Certainly controlling (not eliminating) carbohydrate intake should be utilised for cancer prevention.
