Some Want To Manage Cancer as a Metabolic Disease

Half of American men and about 42 percent of American women will get cancer in their lifetimes. Each day, 1600 Americans die of cancer. Cancer is considered by some to be a largely metabolic disease where it is treated with similar principles to other diseases. Most conventional cancer care in the US relies on surgery, radiation and chemotherapy but survival rates have remained largely static for the last 50 years. Thomas Seyfreid has theorized that cancer is a primarily metabolic illness resulting from damaged cellular mitochondria, and this theory has major implications for treating it.

Key Takeaways:

    • It is expeced by some that half of American men and 41 percent of women will develop cancer at some point in life, making it one of America’s top health concerns.
    • Some estimates suggest over 600,000 people in the U.S. alone are likely to die of cancer each year.
    • Conventional approaches to cancer treatment have changed surprisingly little over the past 59 years, and doctors continue to rely on surgery, radiation and harsh chemotherapy drugs.

“But what if you didn’t need to fear cancer because you knew it was a metabolic disease that you could treat and recover from like other conditions?”
