Cancer as a Metabolic Disease | Dr. Thomas Seyfried, PhD

Dr. Thomas Seyfried, PhD

It’s become a widely held belief that cancer is predominately a genetic disease. However, an empowering evolution in cancer research has shown we have far more control over our risk than previously thought. Join me as I speak with Dr. Thomas Seyfried, PhD, a trailblazer in the arena of conquering cancer. In 2012, Dr. Seyfried published his groundbreaking book, Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management & Prevention of cancer, which provided extensive information showing that cancer can be best defined as a mitochondrial metabolic disease, rather than a genetic disease. In this episode, we discuss Dr. Seyfried’s approach in addressing metabolic dysfunction in order to both treat as well as prevent the development of cancer.
