Summary "Get the Summary of Dr. Jason Fung's The Cancer Code in 20 minutes. Please note: This is a summary & not the original book. Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. For the first time ever, the death rate from cancer is showing a steady decline... but the "War on Cancer" has hardly been won. In The Cancer Code, Dr. Jason Fung offers a revolutionary new understanding of this invasive, often fatal disease - what it is, how it manifests, and why it is so challenging to treat. In this rousing narrative, Dr. Fung identifies the medical community's many missteps in cancer research - in particular, its focus on genetics, or what he terms the "seed" of cancer, at the expense of examining the "soil", or the conditions under which cancer flourishes. Dr. Fung - whose groundbreaking work in the treatment of obesity and diabetes has won him international acclaim - suggests that the primary disease pathway of cancer is caused by the dysregulation of insulin. In fact, obesity and type 2 diabetes significantly increase an individual's risk of cancer."-- Provided by Freading.
