Dr. Thomas Seyfried, a leading pioneer in natural cancer treatment research, calls cancer a treatable mitochondrial metabolic disease. All cancer, including breast cancer, can be prevented and cured naturally by making simple dietary changes. He has written over 150 peer-reviewed articles and wrote Cancer as a Metabolic Disease. In this book, he details the ketogenic diet that starves cancer cells.
Part of Seyfried’s research proved that cancer requires glucose to thrive. Carbohydrates convert to glucose when metabolized. Therefore, by eliminating simple carbs from the diet and replacing them with non-starchy vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats, any cancer cells that reside in the body will eventually starve to death.
