Melanoma Mutation likes Fat for Fuel

Melanoma - American Health Council

“Today more than 95% of all chronic disease is caused by food choice, toxic food ingredient, nutritional deficiencies and lack of physical exercise.” – Mike Adams. Today we are educated in health and education more than we have ever been and new research has shown that melanoma (cancers with BRAF V600E) will grow faster in response to a high-fat ‘ketogenic’ diet. Research has shown that cancer cells love glucose but will a high sugar and fat diet lead to definite cancer cause, along with other health disadvantages?  “When researchers fed mice a diet with more than 90 percent of its calories from fat, grafted tumors derived from V600E melanoma cells grew faster (twice as large over four weeks) than in mice fed a normal diet. This was not true of tumors derived from melanoma cells with other oncogenic mutations.”

The results are scheduled for publication in Cell Metabolism.
