The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancer and provides solutions to cancer management and prevention.nbsp;It expands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is a disease of energy metabolism.nbsp; However, Warburg did not link his theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory was discredited.nbsp; This book aims to providenbsp;evidence, through case studies,nbsp;that cancer is primarily a metabolic disease requringnbsp;metabolic solutions fornbsp;its management and prevention.nbsp; Support for this position isnbsp;derived from critical assessment of current cancer theories.nbsp; Brain cancer case studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolic solutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn to other types of cancer, including breast and colon, due to thenbsp;samenbsp;cellular mutations that they demonstrate.
