The book addresses controversies related to the origins of cancerand provides solutions to cancer management and prevention. Itexpands upon Otto Warburg's well-known theory that all cancer is adisease of energy metabolism. However, Warburg did not linkhis theory to the "hallmarks of cancer" and thus his theory wasdiscredited. This book aims to provide evidence, throughcase studies, that cancer is primarily a metabolic diseaserequring metabolic solutions for its management andprevention. Support for this position is derived fromcritical assessment of current cancer theories. Brain cancercase studies are presented as a proof of principle for metabolicsolutions to disease management, but similarities are drawn toother types of cancer, including breast and colon, due tothe same cellular mutations that they demonstrate.

This book should be read as a requirement for anyone diagnosed with cancer. It will serve as a tremendous practical guide for cancer patients and their families. —Thomas N. Seyfried, Professor of biology at Boston College and author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer. This book is a “must read” for every adult as cancer remains our greatest enemy. If you have experience with cancer, via a family member or friend, once you start reading this book, it will be hard to put down. —Peter L. Pedersen, Professor of Biological Chemistry & Oncology, Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Westman’s personal experience with cancer led him to extensively research the state of cancer care. Strengthening the body’s own immune system to prevent and control cancer has shown very promising results, but it is largely ignored by mainstream cancer research and treatment. If you care about winning the war on cancer, this book will motivate you to advocate for more funding for this line of research. —Stephen L. Swanson, Past Chair of the Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society Dr. Westman’s book is amazing, creative, innovative, different, stimulating and outstanding. —Bharat B. Aggarwal, Professor of Cancer Research, University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Emerging evidence indicates that impaired cellular energy metabolism is the defining characteristic of nearly all cancers regardless of cellular or tissue origin. In contrast to normal cells, which derive most of their usable energy from oxidative phosphorylation, most cancer cells become heavily dependent on substrate level phosphorylation to meet energy demands. Evidence is reviewed supporting a general hypothesis that genomic instability and essentially all hallmarks of cancer, including aerobic glycolysis (Warburg effect), can be linked to impaired mitochondrial function and energy metabolism. A view of cancer as primarily a metabolic disease will impact approaches to cancer management and prevention.
