Metabolic Theory

Most people still believe that cancer is a genetic disease caused by a bunch of powerful, “mutant-zombie” cells which go totally berserk and can’t be stopped.  That’s a summary of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) definition of cancer, which I believe can be very frightening, misleading, and disempowering for people facing cancer.

Cancer is called “krebs” in Germany, for good reason:
The Krebs Cycle is a key source of energy within our cells. In a cancer cell, the Krebs Cycle doesn’t function correctly; the cell is then forced to produce energy less efficiently (via fermentation). So the cancer cell uses more fuel, gets less energy, and produces more waste than its healthy counterparts. Cancer cells are arguably weak.

The odds that genetic mutation is the origin of every single case of cancer are staggeringly low. It’s more likely that some disruption of metabolic process occurs first, which allows DNA damage to develop and persist. please see this article for more information

The good news: we know that all cancer (regardless of the type or stage) is driven by a similar metabolic problem…which can be influenced by lifestyle factors…which are largely within our control.
