Did you know that most of the medical industry today continue to believe that cancer is a genetic disease? Did you also know that a Professor from Germany (who is a Nobel Prize Winner and multi-nominee) theorized that cancer is the result of a metabolic dysfunction in our bodies? He claimed that cancer cells proliferate on sugars, simply put. It's obviously much more complicated than that, and when you read the linked article, you'll find out just how complicated. What it, to me, boils down to is an over-sugared society. Funny how cancer rates have skyrocketed since the dawn of industrial food? Not so funny after all. Most of society consumes way more sugar than any body needs. The solutions, it seems, is beautifully simple: nutrition. We need to keep carbohydrates to a minimum. Ever heard of the ketogenic diet? Take a look: Ketogenic Diet. And, for all of us vegetarians and vegans out there: it is perfectly possible to maintain a low-carb, high-protein diet as a plant-eater too. Simply replace animal-based proteins with plant-based high protein foods that are low on the glycemic index, such as quinoa, for example. So no worries, try it out!
