....as for your author and his new book: the American cancer society, web md, nih, healing well and mayo clinic haven't heard of him, though the Internet does refer to him as a "quack". His rediscovered cancer 'theory' has been around for quite a while as has his suggested 'treatment' for cancer, the 'ketonic diet' featuring low carbs and lots of fat. While the Atkins diet can be an effective weight loss scheme in the short run, it has jack to do with cancer, curing cancer or preventing cancer. As I said above, when you get/have cancer you tend to take it a bit more seriously then you do when you are just looking for something to read on the toilet. I have encountered a shit-ton of people trying very hard to make money off of desperate cancer patients searching for a cure or some small hope of a cure. This is just another one trying to sell you something to line their pockets.
