Hope and Hype Around Cancer Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is promoted as the next great breakthrough in the war on cancer. CNN has adopted the role of a Big Pharma cheerleader in its report on the future of this surprisingly dangerous treatment method.

Immunotherapy drugs have been lauded as a game changer in the world of allopathic cancer treatment. Chimeric antigen receptor technology (CAR-T) has raised a great deal of hope, and an equal measure of concern. CAR-T involves genetically reengineering a patient's immune cells to target tumor-associated antigens, thereby destroying the malignant cells. While these therapies appear to be quite effective at attacking and destroying malignant cells, they can also take a toll on healthy tissues and organs, leaving many patients struggling for their lives, albeit for an entirely different reason.

Cancer is largely a metabolic, not a genetic disease, and not all treatments will work for all cancers. That said, I believe great strides will be made — even for hard-to-treat cancers — once the metabolic underpinnings of cancer become more widely recognized. It is profoundly tragic that the current focus is to employ genetically engineered immune cells to combat cancer, unleashing what amounts to an uncontrolled cytokine storm in the body, when addressing cancer metabolism can be done without harmful side effects.

I believe, along with many of the experts I interviewed for my new and cutting edge book, “Fat for Fuel,” that more than 90 percent of cancer cases are either preventable or treatable. Too many people fail to understand that their odds of developing cancer are greatly reduced if their mitochondria are healthy and functional. “Fat for Fuel” provides a potentially life-saving game plan that can repair and improve the health of your mitochondria: Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy (MMT).
