CANCER: LI COOKS UP REVOLUTIONARY MENU TO BEAT IT

By Marika Sboros

For decades, many doctors dismissed the idea that diet can treat or prevent cancer. For decades, US internal medicine specialist Dr William Li did the exact opposite. He actively embraced the idea.

His compelling research has borne fruit – and vegetables. He shows that there really is such a thing as an anti-cancer diet.

Li is on a stellar list of international speakers at the groundbreaking Rethinking Cancer conference in Paris on September 21, 2017. It’s about a real revolution in cancer treatment: angiogenesis, the natural process by which the body grows new blood vessels.

But perhaps most exciting about the Paris summit is that cancer is not the revolution’s only target. And right diet is only one weapon in its armoury. Speakers say that a variety of methods to harness blood vessel power could be the path to beating heart disease, diabetes, vision loss, declining cognitive function and much more. It’s why Rethinking Cancer holds the promise of longer, healthier life.



Cancer: pilot’s revolutionary survival ‘secret’ takes wings

Air France captain Jean-Jacques Trochon

Can you eat to starve cancer? What about not eating – fasting? Ask Air France captain Jean-Jacques Trochon and cancer specialists and scientists globally.

Trochon is the visionary behind Rethinking Cancer. It’s a world-first summit in Paris on September 21, 2017, on new horizons in cancer treatment. Hosts are France’s internationally renowned Gustave Roussy Cancer Institute and Espace Maurice-Tubiana Medical School.

Specialists worldwide accepted Trochon’s invitation to speak on what he believes is a real “revolution” in cancer treatment.  It is anti-angiogenesis treatments. Angiogenesis is the growth of new blood vessels, including those feeding cancer cells.  Angiogenesis is the “hallmark of just about every kind of cancer”, Trochon says.  Diet and fasting are on the conference’s revolutionary anti-cancer menu.

But what does a pilot know about cancer research and treatment? Lots as it turns out. Trochon is a cancer survivor who did his own research. On the strength of it, he “intelligently delayed” having chemo and radiation. That decision may be why he is still around to tell his remarkable tale.



PARIS CANCER SUMMIT: SCIENCE OPENS BRAVE NEW FRONT

By Marika Sboros

The upcoming world-first cancer summit in Paris looks set to open a new scientific front in the decades-long “War on Cancer”. The Rethinking Cancer conference runs on September 21 22, 2017, at the internationally renowned Gustave Roussy Cancer Institute.

It brings together for the first time world leaders – top scientists and clinicians working separately – in a vital but under-investigated research area. It is the role of diet and metabolism in cancer control. They are leading what they believe is a major part of the real “revolution” in treatment: anti-angiogenesis methods. Angiogenesis is the term for growth of new blood vessels that cancer needs to survive and thrive.

The conference will, therefore, address three main topics: metabolism, caloric restriction and dietary bioactives.

Organisers are Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus’s Dutch Director General Dr Alexander Eggermont and French renal specialist Dr Bernard Escudier. The visionary behind the summit is Air France captain and cancer survivor Jean-Jacques Trochon.
