Is The Key To Curing Cancer In Your Metabolism?

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.

Metabolism is an incredibly important component to your health and your well-being, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that metabolism is also tied into cancer prevention.  If you care about protecting your health, you should be aware of how your metabolism is impacting this part of your life.  You can always visit your doctor to ask about your metabolism and maybe even “reset” it with the right vitamins or other therapies.  Regardless, metabolism and cancer should be something you think about, especially if there is a high occurrence of cancer in your family.

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


Cancer and Metabolism

The history behind cancer treatments can be traced back to a doctor named Warburg who discovered that cancer cells produce lactic acid in abundance when exposed to oxygen.  Called the “Warburg Effect,” the cancer cell is then producing a toxic through the lactic acid and thus a different metabolism than other cells.  Warburg theorized that cancer was a product of this strange conversion of energy, different from anything else previously known.

Head to Head with Conventional Treatment

The theory that metabolism may play a role in the prevention and treatment wasn’t widely received despite the early science behind it.  Part of the problem was that Warburg’s theory was overshadowed by the discovery of DNA and genetics.  In fact, genetics took the spotlight for many years to come.

Fast forward to just a few years ago and the Human Genome Project.  The project was tasked with mapping cancer genes and noting mutations in an effort to try to find a cause for the disease.  The problem was the disease seemed to target genes randomly, so there were no patterns that made any sense, at least from the genetic standpoint.  The only thing that makes sense is that there must be some other driving force behind the disease.

The Link Between Metabolism and Cancer

If you know someone who has cancer or if you are suffering from the disease yourself, it can be a traumatic time in your life, but you should know that you have options beyond traditional treatment.  The link between metabolism and cancer has now been shown to have some basis in science, and this is good news.  In fact, current studies are refocusing to include metabolic causes in their studies of cancer.  This means that treatments and therapy will soon follow the studies in order to cure cancer.

The problem with conventional treatment lies in the DNA and the cells themselves — there is too much random generation of cancer cells to effectively treat them at the genetic level.  However, when you examine the metabolic causes, more patterns emerge.  These patterns are currently under study and results will be hitting the treatment markets soon.

Looking Ahead

As you can see, it isn’t as simple as drawing a link between metabolism and cancer, but the current scientific studies are now pursuing this option instead of the traditional treatments.  Conventional methods are being turned upside down as new studies emerge to support the metabolic cancer connection.  As we move forward, new research is also showing a tie between the type of diet a person has and their risk of cancer.  So it is obvious that there is still much to be learned, but there is hope when it comes to the metabolism connection between the occurrences of cancer in some people.

If you’re interested in the metabolic causes of cancer, it is best to do some of your own research.  The concept is so new that you may not find much or hear much about it from your own health professional, but it is worth the effort to educate yourself on the topic.
