Can We Eat To Starve Cancer?

William Li on TED

William Li lectures about angiogenesis on TED.

In a TED talk, William Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor. The crucial first (and best) step: Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game.

Many of societys most devastating diseases cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and Alzheimers, to name a few share a common denominator: faulty angiogenesis, the bodys growth of new capillary blood vessels. Given excessive or insufficient blood vessel growth, serious health issues arise. While researching under Harvard surgeon Judah Folkman, who pioneered the study of angiogenesis, Li learned how angiogenesis-based medicine helps patients overcome numerous diseases by restoring the balance of blood-vessel growth.

William Li co-founded the Angiogenesis Foundation in 1994. The foundations Project ENABLE a global system that integrates patients, medical experts and healthcare professionals democratizes the spread and implementation of knowledge about angiogenesis-based medicines, diet and lifestyle. Some 40,000 physicians have been educated on new treatments, ranging from cancer care to wound care, by the foundations faculty of medical experts, and they are bringing new, lifesaving and disease-preventing techniques to people around the world.

I would like you to read about EllagiPlex, one of those ideal natural food blends that dramatically promote both the reduction in angio-genesis, and the increase in apoptosis, the natural signaling system that tells the body which cells should shut down and be replaced by new, healthy ones. Please post comments, share with friends, and help us get the message out: food is just as effective as medicine. You will see the research evidence In the last part of the video .
