    Arginine Depletion May Be A Viable Approach For Cancer

    Ray is not a big fan of certain amino acids like arginine due to its role as a nitric oxide (NO) precursor. I posted a study several weeks ago showing that supplemental arginine greatly boosted tumor growth while supplemental glycine halted it. This latest study seems to take the arginine...
