In the 1880's, Louis Pasteur published his work on cellular aerobic respiration and glycolysis. In 1931, Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for his work on the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, which was later summarized in his 1956 paper, On the Origin of Cancer Cells. His work on cancer expanded upon Pasteur's findings and described respiratory insufficiency and a cellular metabolism of glucose fermentation as the primary trigger for cancer progression.
Warburg's conclusions on cancer were much discussed in scientific circles, as they are academically elegant, but were not accepted by most members of the scientific community engaged in cancer research. Most cancer researchers in the late 1950's believed that the anaerobic metabolism of cancer cells and their accompanying output of lactic acid was a side effect or an adjunct effect of cancer, not a cause. Cancer research since the 1960's has focused primarily on genetic aberrations as causative for cancer, and has ignored the body of research on cancer pH and its implications for therapeutic approaches. Warburg's work was a catalyst for yet another research effort on the nature of cancer cells, beginning in the 1930's. A. Keith Brewer, PhD (physicist) performed experiments on the relationship between energized, oxygenated cell membrane and elemental uptake, vs. cellular membranes in an unenergized state such as cancer cells exhibit. He wrote a number of papers discussing the cellular mechanisms of cancer cells and the changes in metabolism induced or indicated by the lack of or presence of oxygen in combination with other elements, particularly potassium and calcium. He noted that cancer cells share one characteristic no matter what type of cancer: they have lost their pH control mechanism.
Diet, exercise and a support network are the main focus of those who follow the weight watchers diet. There are support groups that hold regular meetings which supporters can attend physically or online. Online or not, support and education are not lacking for weight watchers dieters.
is different and includes all 43 Essential Nutrients. South Beach Diet helps to control insulin levels by consuming unrefined slow carbohydrates. The proponent of this diet believes that low-fat regimes were not effective in the long run. The Raw Food Diet otherwise known as Raw Foodism follows a diet composed of foods and drinks which are not processed, plant-based foods and whatever is organic. Raw foodists suggest that three fourths of your daily food should be uncooked food. Most raw foodists are also vegans, not eating animal based foods. The Mediterranean Diet is a typical diet of those from southern Europe, which consists mainly of plants foods, fruits, nuts and beans, cheese and dairy products, meat of fish, poultry and red meat, plus moderate amounts of wine.
