What is the Research Saying?
In 1931, Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery that cancer cells have a fundamentally different energy metabolism compared to healthy cells. In 1924, he proposed the hypothesis that cancer is a metabolic disease. The North American mainstream oncology world holds to the belief that cancer is a genetic disease. Dr. Warburg, in his studies, showed that cancer cells exhibit a preference for sugar, as fuel, in the absence of oxygen and acid wastes are produced. Malignant tumours feed on that sugar. Healthy cells use glucose too, or ketones, but they do it in the presence of oxygen. The Ketogenic Diet calls for the elimination of all but non-starchy veggies. So there are no potatoes, no rice, no pasta. No Twinkies.
