Thomas Seyfried’s talk at Ancestral Health Symposium 2012 (AHS12) is a deep dive into the origins of cancer, loosely framed around the question, “Is cancer a metabolic disease?” In some ways an extremely provocative talk, but fascinating to watch him step through the science behind assertions like, “Regardless of what you might read, mutations are not the cause of cancer.” (Hint: it’s the mitochondria! “We never find completely normal mitochondria in any cancer cells.”)
Some of the concepts he covers include why it’s important to target glucose and glutamine when fighting cancer. It turns out that cancerous cells can metabolize either of these.
