How Fasting Can Beat Genetics and Control Cancer – Dr. Jason Fung with Dave Asprey : 760

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Dr. Jason Fung, a Canadian nephrologist known as a pioneer in intermittent fasting in a clinical setting. He’s co-founder and chairman of The Fasting Method.

He’s now turned his attention to cancer with his new book: “The Cancer Code: A Revolutionary New Understanding of a Medical Mystery.”

A completely new and fascinating concept of cancer has emerged. The evolutionary concept of cancer maintains that cancer already exists buried deep into every cell of every multicellular animal, and its development is driven by Darwinian selection pressure. 

Dr. Fung is the site chief of medicine at Scarborough General Hospital; scientific editor of the Journal of Insulin Resistance; and a kidney specialist in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

His specialty is in intermittent fasting and low carb, especially for treating people with type 2 diabetes. His groundbreaking work in the treatment of obesity and diabetes has won him international acclaim. He’s the author of several bestselling books on fasting, as well as the “The Obesity Code” and “The Diabetes Code.”

“Obesity related cancers are actually starting to sort of move their way back up, which is of course very concerning,” Dr. Fung says. “Liver cancer has tripled in the last 20 years. And this is directly related to the obesity epidemic, as well as this sort of epidemic of type 2 diabetes that we're getting.”

“And in cancer, it's different because insulin is also a growth factor,” he says. “So, not only is it important for weight gain metabolism, but it's also a growth factor. When you start to have too much insulin, then not only does it lead to the obesity type 2 diabetes, but it's also going to tip the scales in terms of growth, which is going to tip the scale in favor of cancer.”

“There’s something that you can dostop feeding the growth of cancer. It’s within your control.”
