While I usually don't re-post other blogs on this blog, I do so today because author Tim Ferriss says what needs to be said so eloquently. Depriving certain cancer cells of sugar, through diet and medication, can literally starve them to death. Glucose is essential for anaerobic metabolism which is the preferred way for these cells to create energy. Ferriss and Dr. Peter Attia both highlight that the use of the blood sugar lowering agent metformin (Glucophage) has been shown to decrease cancers in Type II diabetics. As usual, contact your physician before starting any prescribed medications.
"Potential Tactics for Defeating Cancer - A Tool Kit in 1000 Words"

Ferriss is the author of The 4-Hour Body which is on my recommended reading list. Beware though: it is not for the squeamish.
