  Cancer is a devastating disease and in fact it’s becoming one of the leading causes of death around the world. What’s worse, the medical profession is largely ignorant of the fact that most cancers are rooted in metabolic and mitochondrial dysfunction, and hence the conventional prevention recommendations do little to nothing to quell the tide of cancer diagnoses. Some experts even suggest that over 90% of cancer cases are either preventable or treatable as cancer is really a mitochondrial metabolic disease, rooted in poor diet choices combined with a toxic lifestyle.
