The Hidden Story of Cancer
By Brian Peskin, with Amid Habib, MD. Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg researched the metabolism of cancer in the first half of the 20th century. His theory was that cancer cells function in an oxygen-deprived state and metabolically ferment sugar into lactic acid. Warburg's work remained theoretical, primarily because it could not be put into practice medically.
In "The Hidden Story of Cancer," Brian Peskin studies Warburg's work in meticulous fashion, reviewing the important papers that were ignored or misinterpreted by various scientists. Peskin's review emphasizes the sound scientific basis of Warburg's research. Based on his review, Peskin also concludes that tumor cell transformation takes place when essential fatty acids are deficient. His research has pinpointed the importance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids--and taking them in the proper proportion--in cancer prevention. Includes detailed information about the different types of foods and oils that provide these fatty acids. Revised edition. (HC 732 pages)
