Exercise Is an Important Part of Cancer Prevention and Care
However, after writing “Fat for Fuel,” I recognized exercise actually is one of the most powerful signals for PGC 1-alpha, which is the primary signal for your mitochondria to reproduce and multiply, a process called mitochondrial biogenesis.
As I explain in my new book “Fat for Fuel,” mitochondrial dysfunction seems to be at the foundational core of most all cancers, and anything that addresses that is likely to have a favorable impact on cancer.
While the featured documentary and studies reviewed in this article support the use of exercise to prevent and treat cancer, exercise pales in comparison to getting your body to burn fat as its primary fuel, using a ketogenic diet as described in my book “Fat for Fuel.”
Documentary and Studies Confirm Benefits of Exercise for Cancer
The documentary “Exercise and Cancer,” produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Catalyst television program, highlights the use of specific, targeted exercises for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatments at the Exercise Medicine Research Institute (Exercise Medicine) in Perth.
What would universal healthcare look like in the U.S.?
Joining us in-studio to discuss all of this is Dr. David Himmelstein. He’s a primary care doctor and professor of public health at the City University of New York. He cofounded Physicians for a National Health Program.
Thanks for joining us, Doctor.
DR. DAVID HIMMELSTEIN, PROF. PUBLIC HEALTH, CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK: Thanks for having me.
DESVARIEUX: So let’s just start off. Off the bat, can you just explain how the U.S. has the most costly health care system, and yet we don’t cover everyone? How is this even possible?
HIMMELSTEIN: Well, we have an enormous number of people making profits and middlemen in the system. So our insurance companies, for every $1 we pay in, we get about $0.86 worth of care out. Fourteen cents of every dollar stays with the insurance firms, doesn’t buy any health care. And we have enormous numbers of for-profit hospitals, dialysis companies, nursing homes, a lot of money being made in the health care system, not to delivering the care that people need, but actually supporting corporate profits and interests.
