Publisher's Summary

For over a century, we've accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm? What if cancer isn't a disease of damaged DNA but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases, too - and show us a radical new path to optimal health?
In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, New York Times best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what's causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria are damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy.
Dr. Mercola shows that you can take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel - and it's not what you've been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing - not only in treating or preventing serious illness but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more.

As you listen to this audiobook, you'll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You'll finally understand the type of fuel it's designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You'll find detailed guidelines for starting a ketogenic eating plan. And you won't have to wait decades for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain starting right now.

In depth and scientific but could be revolutionary

This book is long and complex but very worth ploughing through if you want to understand the science behind how your metabolic system works. More catered for those in US where doctors work with patients and you can go and ask for blood tests.

I found it very interesting and enlightening. This could change society if Governments and health care providers took note.
