Your cancer is hungry all the time. Stop feeding it and start feeding yourself.Cancer thrives on sugar. Cancer cells need it, unable to grow and multiply without a steady supply of glucose. But when you’re diagnosed with cancer, recommendations from oncology doctors often result in increased blood sugar and insulin levels—the essential foods that cancer cells need to thrive.
Hacking Chemo, Registered Dietitian and cancer survivor Martha Tettenborn uncovers the secrets of cancer metabolism, offering a refreshing new way of treating the disease with minimal side effects and maximum effectiveness. Cancer treatments like chemo don’t have to derail your life. You can be your own bio-hacker by decoding how cancer works in your body…and your life.
