wouldnt fastinga few days a week, be a great way to kill cancer cells?
Fasting-like diet turns the immune system against cancer
A low-calorie fasting-like diet, plus chemotherapy, enables the immune system to recognize and kill skin and breast cancer cells, according to a new USC-led study on michttps://news.usc.edu/103972/fasting-lik ... st-cancer/
fasting-like diet with chemotherapy strips away the guard that protects breast cancer and skin cancer cells from the immune system, according to a new USC-led study on mice.
The study was published in the journal Cancer Cell on July 11, days after BMC Cancer published a separate study showing that a pilot trial of the three-day, fasting-like diet was “safe and feasible” for 18 cancer patients on chemotherapy.maybe cancer isnt cause of DNA damage, but damage to mitochondria?https://www.cancerdefeated.com/the-most ... self/3105/
Depriving your body of calories effectively treats cancer. Without negative side effects.
Normal cells respond to fasting by going into survival mode. They slow down and conserve resources.
Cancer cells, though, plow full steam ahead… At least, they try. When denied food, they don’t have the ability to slow down their metabolism until food becomes available again. They need a constant flood of glucose – i.e. blood sugar, which is the product of metabolizing carbohydrates. Without their favorite growth food, tumor growth slows and cancer cells die.
Studies show that fasting makes chemotherapy more toxic to cancer cells and less harmful to healthy cells. This is why it works to the degree it does. So, wouldn’t it be nice to claim your “starvation” benefit without chemo’s toxic side effects?
