Men eating this 1 food often live to 110 or 120
So-called health gurus only live to 60 by avoiding this food —
I know it sounds crazy… but there’s 1 food that very old and vital men are eating — and they’re often living to 100, 110 or even 120…
While many so-called health gurus are dropping dead at 50 or 60 by AVOIDING this one food…
Fats vs carbs — which feed cancer?
About 100 years ago, a Nobel prize-winning physiologist called Otto Warburg discovered something known as the Warburg Effect.
This is the observation that cancer cells have a different type of metabolism compared with healthy cells of the same type.
It was a major breakthrough – but things are a little more complicated than it initially seemed.
Recent research shows that cancer cells generate energy largely by fatty acid oxidation – metabolizing fats in a certain way.
It might be the biggest discovery in cancer research in 100 years.
When researchers then looked at the effect of this knowledge in a number of animal experiments…
…they found that low-fat diets lead to a far lower incidence of cancer.
The animal and cell experiments were performed at the National Cancer Center, Goyang, Gyeonggi-do in the Republic of Korea. The paper was published in Seminars in Cancer Biology.
The debate about the metabolic foundations of cancer has been ongoing for the last 100 years.
“Several metabolic pathways for the supply of ATP have been proposed; however, the major source of reducing power for ADP in cancer remains unclear.”
There is a lot of complicated biochemistry that is discussed in the article…
…but the most important part of that is the finding that blocking fatty acid oxidation seems to starve cancer cells of fuel.
Fatty acid oxidation (FAO) is simply 1 way of generating energy from fat.
And when the researchers blocked FAO, they starved the cancer cells, even when those cells had access to plenty of energy in the form of sugar.
“We found that blocking fatty acid oxidation (FAO) in the presence of glucose significantly decreased ATP production in various cancer cells.”
Further research showed that this fat was being delivered from other parts of the body, rather than being generated inside the cell.
“We observed that cancer cell growth mainly relies on metabolic nutrients and oxygen systemically supplied through the bloodstream instead of metabolic reprogramming.”
This begs the question about the potential anti-cancer effect of a low-fat diet.
I mean, if you limit the amount of fat coming into the body then you limit the amount of fat that can be supplied to the cancer cells…
So, the researchers carried out some experiments in mice which had been modified to get cancer.
Those mice were split into 3 different groups. The different groups were fed different diets.
- 1 group was fed a low-fat, high carb diet.
- 1 group was fed a high-fat, low-carb diet.
- 1 group was fed a standard lab mouse diet.
Mice fed a high-fat diet were twice as likely to develop cancer compared to those fed a standard diet.
Mice fed a low-fat, high carb diet were three times LESS likely to develop cancer compared to those fed the standard diet.
“In a spontaneous mouse tumor model, tumor growth was 2-fold higher in mice fed a high-fat diet (low-carb diet), whereas a calorie-balanced, low-fat diet (high-carb diet) inhibited tumor growth by 3-fold compared with that in mice fed a control/normal diet.”
Of course, if you’re reading my articles for any period of time…
…you know that this is far from the first time that a low-fat, high-carb diet has been implicated in decreasing the risk of cancer.
This research shows that low-fat diets can have a massive effect on reducing the risk of cancer…
…and it shows us a new mechanism that explains why this is true…
…namely the understanding that fatty acid oxidation provides the metabolic energy for cancer cells.
And if you provide less fat in the diet there is simply less fats to be oxidized to feed cancer cells.
“This 5-fold difference in tumor growth between mice fed low-fat and high-fat diets suggests that fat-induced obesity promotes cancer growth, and tumor growth depends on fatty acids as the primary source of energy.”
You should always consult your healthcare practitioner for guidance on medical diagnosis and treatment.
Belly fat, high blood pressure, diabetes, erections problems, even cancer — all caused by this one metabolic issue…
What is the biggest difference between youth and old age?
Young people are always full of energy and in great health because they have hot, high metabolisms.
They burn sugar for energy.
However, older men get cold and sluggish and their metabolisms slow down.
And they burn only fat for energy.
And this opens them up to weight gain, erections problems, diabetes, prostate issues, and even cancer.
So how do you restore a hot, high metabolism?
