A fantastic lecture by Dr. Rainer J. Klement (Medical Physicist) of Lets Go Paleo on the role of a low carb ketogenic diet in the prevention and treatment of cancer. The actual title of the Ancestral Health Symposium 2012 (AHS12) presentation is, “Is there a role for a paleolithic lifestyle in the treatment and prevention of cancer?”, but most of the talk focuses on how a low carb diet implemented with good food quality choices (as are often found in paleo nutrition) can not only prevent cancer, but can be used as part of treatment.
Dr. Klement provides some fantastic overviews of the mechanisms at play (including the history and function of the Warburg effect). This is well worth watching for anyone touched by cancer in any way.
Note: If you have trouble with the video below, try viewing it here. It seems like there are some problems with hosting permissions that Vimeo/AHS needs to work out.
