Cancer as A Metabolic Disease
On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of CancereBook - 2012
The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancerand provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. Itexpands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is adisease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not linkhis theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory wasdiscredited. This book aims to provide evidence, throughcase studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic diseaserequring metabolic solutions for its management andprevention. Support for this position is derived fromcritical assessment of current cancer theories. Brain cancercase studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolicsolutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn toother types of cancer, including breast and colon, due tothe same cellular mutations that they demonstrate.
