Thank you for joining us for another episode of the Low Carb MD Podcast. Sam Apple is a health care and medical writer. He did his undergrad at University of Michigan, his masters at Columbia. He has worked for University of Pennsylvania, is currently on the faculty of the MA in Science Writing and MA in Writing programs at Johns Hopkins, and has written extensively on metformin and metabolic health. Soon, he will be releasing his brand new book, Ravenous, which tackles, among others, the subjects of the Warburg Effect and metabolic health’s relationship to cancer.
In this discussion, Tro, Brian, and Sam talk about the role of metabolic health in preventing cancer, the effect that hyperinsulinemia has an cancer growth, the Warburg Effect and the work of Otto Warburg as it pertains to cancer cell research, how sugar, stress, and poor sleep habits raise insulin, the unfortunate lack of emphasis on preventative treatments for cancer in research, how the rise in cancer diagnoses follows the same curve as the rise of the western diet, and whether there is a diet out there that treats cancer.
