The Crucial Role of Nutrition in Cancer Treatment
John Bagnulo MPH, PhD
A free nutrition lecture sponsored by Functional Formularies
Have you read that nutritional intervention has little impact on the progression of cancer? We present a very different perspective.
Cancer cells have a unique glycolytic-dependent metabolism that creates an abnormally high demand for available carbohydrate. Reducing the carbohydrate and/or sugar availability by restricting the carbohydrate consumption and limiting the protein intake of cancer patients can improve outcomes. Creating this \”bottleneck\” of essential energy for cancer cells, in combination with the use of specific phytonutrients that exhibit clinical evidence of pro-autophagy, pro-apoptosis, and anti-angiogenesis, is a potentially effective adjunct therapy for many forms of cancer.
Join John Bagnulo MPH, PhD for a discussion on carbohydrate restriction, nutritional ketosis, and the use of plant-based substances that exhibit clinical evidence for slowing and stopping cancer metabolism.
