Dominic D’Agostino on Starving Cancer Cells
Did you know that sugar can feed cancer cells? So, can the ketogenic diet prevent cancer? Dominic D’Agostino is a leading researcher in ketogenic and metabolic studies. In his Ted Talk, he concisely explains the detrimental impact sugar can have. Dominic illustrates how sugar creates neurological spikes in the brain that can lead to seizures and how you can starve cancer cells by restricting sugar consumption.
About Dr. D’Agostino
An Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida College Of Medicine, Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology where he develops and tests metabolic therapies, including alternative energy substrates and ketogenic agents for neurological disorders, cancer and wound healing. While studying the effects of gasses on the brains of Navy Seal divers, he developed an approach for metabolically starving cancer cells through diet and compressed oxygen, replacing chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation.
