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.
