The guest speaker on this episode of xCures' "Target Cancer Podcast" series is Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee. He is a Pulitzer prize winning author (and my favorite author), researcher and Harvard trained cancer physician at Columbia Univerisity Medical Center in NY. He has interesting new ideas about how diet (precision nutrition) can be used to help treat cancer. Forget trying to reduce sugar. His approach is to figure out which essential ammino acids the tumor needs more than the normal cells, and then provide a diet that minimizes those amino acids.He co-founded Faeth Therapeutics to test his ideas. He is using xCures to help run a clinical trial of precision nutrition for the treatment of metastatic pancreatic cancer.
This is not directly related to brain tumors but if it works, we can apply the same concept to all cancers.
