TMHS 485: What Causes Cancer, The History Of Cancer Treatments, & Cracking The Cancer Code - With Guest Dr. Jason Fung

The Model Health Show

Despite billions of dollars being invested into cancer treatment every year, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US. Cancer is one of the most prevalent health issues our society is facing today. Its devastating reach has impacted millions of people worldwide, hurting folks and their loved ones physically, emotionally, and financially.  Over the past few decades, we’ve accepted cancer as a genetic mutation, or an unlucky hand that some of us just happen to be dealt. However, our recent understanding of cancer offers a new hope. In his new book, The Cancer Code, Dr. Jason Fung offers a new paradigm on how cancer occurs and how we can take back control of our health.  On today’s show, Dr. Fung is here to discuss the pivotal changes in our understanding of cancer and to demystify what cancer actually is. You’re going to learn about real world, sustainable changes you can make to reduce your cancer risk, and how to be more empowered about your overall health. Dr. Fung is one of the leading experts in the field of preventing Western diseases, and I hope his insights spark a change in the way you view cancer. Enjoy!  In this episode you’ll discover: What the second leading cause of death is in the US. How Dr. Fung’s research on obesity led him to write a book about cancer.  What makes cancer different from other diseases.  The two biggest lifestyle choices that contribute to the development of cancer.  How the paradigm of cancer as cell growth led to modern cancer treatments. What the advent of the genetics revolution changed about our understanding of cancer. How testing for genetic mutations paved the way for individualized medicine.  What number of genetic mutations are linked to cancer.  How the progress of cancer medicine compares to other Western diseases. The link between asbestos and cancer, and how the data was originally suppressed. What the lumper-splitter problem is, and how it relates to cancer. The definition of the Hayflick Limit. How companies are legally able to suppress lifesaving data. A fundamental difference in the way that corporations and the public view drug studies. How and why the price of cancer drugs has increased exponentially. Why there are so many conflicts of interest in the pharmaceutical industry. An explanation of Dr. Fung’s paradigm, the seed and the soil of cancer. How our environment shapes our susceptibility to cancer. What insulin levels have to do with major Western illnesses.  How cancer cells and glucose interact.  Foods to avoid to prevent cancer.
