CHEYENNE, Wyo., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ketogenic-Diet-Resource.com – Standard cancer treatments are expensive and cause debilitating side effects, so a revolutionary method of natural, non-toxic cancer treatment is being welcomed by patients all over the world. This safe and inexpensive therapy utilizes a high fat, low carbohydrate ketogenic diet to fight cancer by starving it. A new eBook titled "Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet" details how it works. The eBook, available at Ketogenic-Diet-Resource.com, provides cancer patients with tools and information necessary to successfully implement this dietary therapy which can be used alone, or in conjunction with chemotherapy and radiation treatments to support and protect patient health.
Research from as far back as the 1920s shows that most cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar to thrive. They prefer sugar even when oxygen is available for normal cellular respiration, a phenomenon known as the Warburg Effect. When blood glucose levels are low, normal cells use fat products called ketones for fuel, but cancer cells cannot metabolize ketones and this makes them vulnerable to dietary therapy. Ketogenic diets sharply lower blood glucose while increasing ketone levels, a metabolic state which effectively starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells.
"Sugar addiction is the Achilles heel of cancer cells," says Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, a ketogenic researcher at the University of South Florida. Along with Dr. D'Agostino, Dr. Thomas Seyfried of Boston College, Dr. Colin Champ at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and Dr. Eugene Fine of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York are at the forefront of current research on ketogenic diets and cancer. The eBook is based in part on their research and as such, it offers the most up-to-date information about how and why the diet works.
Written by Ellen Davis to help cancer patients with practical implementation of the diet, this eBook offers comprehensive research evidence, advice on implementation and monitoring of progress, appropriate targets for blood glucose and ketone levels, and other important information. The first edition has sold in over 40 countries, and it's now available in an updated edition which provides insights from the newest research and simplified guidelines for successful implementation.
The eBook is available at http://www.ketogenic-diet-resource.com/cancer-diet.html. For more information, see:
