Cancer is one of the top causes of death in the United States with ever-increasing numbers each day.  Worldwide the number of people who die from the disease is in the tens of thousands.  There is no cure for this disease, only treatment that sometimes causes it to go into remission.  However, current studies may be blowing away the traditional methods of treating the disease.  The latest research seems to show that changes in your diet may be effective in treating and preventing cancer.

So the question is, can changing your metabolism prevent cancer?  The possibility is staggering but also overwhelming in terms of study.  New research must be undertaken and pursued from a non-genetic foundation to really get to the bottom of this new revelation.

So, what do the studies say about the link between metabolism and cancer?
