Notable quotes

  • “A major new study has identified for the first time unique protein signatures linked to inflammation and energy metabolism in Alzheimer’s disease.”
  • “Glucose and glutamine drive glioblastoma (GBM), a deadly type of brain cancer. Radiation increases glucose and glutamine in the microenvironment.”
  • “new study showing that cancer is a mitochondrial metabolic disease driven primarily by the fermentation of glucose and the amino acid glutamine.”
  • “If most tumors, regardless of tissue origin, are dependent on glucose and glutamine for survival, then cost-effective, non-toxic therapeutic strategies should become obvious for managing most cancers.”
  • “Over 1,600 people are dying each day in the US from cancer according to the Amer. Cancer Soc. Is this tragedy due to the failure in recognizing that cancer is a metabolic disease and not a genetic disease?”
  • “Our new published case report describes how ketogenic metabolic therapy, used without radiation or chemo, acts synergistically with the IDH1 mutation for the long-term management of glioblastoma.”
  • “Billions spent on novel gene-targeting cancer drugs provide a chance to live only 2.4-months longer!”
  • “new paper published in iScience more clearly defines how cancer cells synthesize energy for growth and describes a glucose/glutamine-targeting therapeutic strategy for the non-toxic management of most cancers.”
  • “Pablo Kelly celebrates six years of survival after his diagnosis with incurable glioblastoma in Sept. 2014. He chose ketogenic metabolic therapy as an alternative to the standard of care; no radiation, no chemotherapy, no steroids.”
  • “For those interested in science history and the benefits of nutritional ketosis, I can highly recommend Travis Christofferson’s new book, “The Fourth Fuel”.”
