Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline … but the ‘War on Cancer’ has hardly been won.Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline … but the ‘War on Cancer’ has hardly been won.In The Cancer Code, Dr Jason Fung offers a revolutionary new understanding of this invasive, often fatal disease – what it is, how it manifests and why it is so challenging to treat. In this rousing narrative, Dr Fung identifies the medical community’s many missteps in cancer research – in particular, its focus on genetics, or what he terms the ‘seed’ of cancer, at the expense of examining the ‘soil,’ or the conditions under which cancer flourishes. Dr Fung – whose ground-breaking work in the treatment of obesity and diabetes has won him international acclaim – suggests that the primary disease pathway of cancer is caused by the dysregulation of insulin. In fact, obesity and type 2 diabetes significantly increase an individual’s risk of cancer.In this accessible read, Dr Fung provides a new paradigm for dealing with cancer, with recommendations for what we can do to create a hostile soil for this dangerous seed. One such strategy is intermittent fasting, which reduces blood glucose, lowering insulin levels. Another, eliminating intake of insulin-stimulating foods, such as sugar and refined carbohydrates.For hundreds of years, cancer has been portrayed as a foreign invader we’ve been powerless to stop. By reshaping our view of cancer as an internal uprising of our own healthy cells, we can begin to take back control. The seed of cancer may exist in all of us, but the power to change the soil is in our hands.Dr Jason Fung is a doctor, author and researcher. His ground-breaking science-based books about diabetes and obesity, The Diabetes Code, The Obesity Code and The Complete Guide to Fasting have sold hundreds of thousands of copies and challenged the conventional wisdom that diabetics should be treated with insulin. Dr Fung is also the co-founder of the Intensive Dietary Management Program, North America’s leading clinic to help people lose weight and reverse Type 2 Diabetes naturally with fasting. His work on fasting has been cited by the Daily Mail, Telegraph, CNN, TIME, the Atlantic, Forbes and many other media outlets.THIRD INSTALLMENT IN BESTSELLING SERIES: Like The Obesity Code and The Diabetes Code, which offered ground-breaking new perspectives on metabolic disease and the under recognized role of insulin in our bodies, THE CANCER CODE will shed new light on an often misunderstood topic and empower people with the knowledge and tools to reduce risk. CANCER IS A SUBJECT THAT TOUCHES EVERYONE: Every 2 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There are around 367,000 new cancer cases in the UK every year, that's around 1,000 every day.BREAKOUT AUTHOR: With a co-ordinated publishing effort between Harper Wave in the US and Harper NonFiction in the UK, we have a huge opportunity to break him out as a star. WELL-CONNECTED IN WELLNESS: Though Dr Fung is based in Canada, he's well-connected in wellness circles. He is beloved by the low-carb and keto communities, where he's appeared on virtually every top podcast available, as well as with disruptive thinkers like Peter Attia and Dave Asprey. PROVOCATIVE NARRATIVE: Dr Fung issues an indictment of the scientific community’s many missteps in the ‘War on Cancer’, as well as the pharmaceutical industry’s greed, and he does not mince words. The Cancer Code is an eye-opening, educational and provocative read that is certain to make waves in the medical community. EMPOWERING MESSAGE: Cancer is one of the most feared diseases of our lifetimes, and for good reason – it seems to strike indiscriminately and it's ruthless and relentless in its progression. Dr Fung’s perspective on the ‘soil and the seed’ disease offers us much needed hope: that with nutritional correction and intermittent fasting we can greatly reduce our individual cancer risk.Competition: Why We Get Sick;Lifespan;How Not To Die;Eat to Beat Disease;F*** You Cancer;How to Starve Cancer;The Tlomere Effect;Things We Never Said.
