    Cancer Cells Addicted To Fat And Use Fat Oxidation For Survival

    Ray has written several times that while cancer cells use glucose for their normal activities they use fat to evade apoptosis and increase metastasis. Thus, according to Ray, using substances that block fat oxidation can be therapeutic. Niacinamide and aspirin are some of the most beneficial...

    Dietary methionine restriction increases fat oxidation in obese adults with metabolic syndrome.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21346062 OBJECTIVE: In preclinical reports, restriction of dietary methionine intake was shown to enhance metabolic flexibility, improve lipid profiles, and reduce fat deposition. The present report is the outcome of a "proof of concept" study to evaluate the...
