An award-winning docu-series on the metabolic theory of cancer and associated therapies.
About the Series
CANCER/EVOLUTION relates advances in cancer research from the 1920s to the present as told by the original researchers, their biographers and contemporaries.
In a world shaped by an ever-changing swirl of social and political influences – from Nazism to corporate profits – our protagonists remain dedicated to advancing human understanding of cancer.
There are no individual villains in this story. Nevertheless, there is danger posed by systemic forces that would solidify failing theories into dogma.
Episode 1: The Dustbin of History
Dr. Otto Warburg, an arrogant gay Jewish German under aegis of the Nazi regime, is arguably the greatest biochemmist of the 20th century. His discoveries are the foundation for the metabolic theory of cancer but were disregarded as his reputation declined and scientific interest focused on DNA.
Episode 2: Opening the Floodgates
Episode 3: New Research & Researchers
Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried synthesized and updated decades of reproducible but discarded research supporting the metabolic theory in his 2012 book Cancer as a Metabolic Disease. His work has launched a flood of new research and therapies.
Episode 4: A New Hope
The final episode of the series follows the oncologists and licensed practitioners leveraging new scientific theories to achieve real-world results.
The series will crescendo into a powerful montage of published case study subjects and other vetted survivors who have far outlived their prognoses and improved their quality of life using safe, low cost metabolic therapies including fasting, a therapeutic ketogenic diet, and off-label pharmaceuticals.
Bonus Episode: The Evolution of Cancer
Dr. Paul Davies, legendary astrophysicist who has authored over 20 books on quantum physics, was commissioned by the National Cancer Institute to develop an “outside the box” perspective on cancer. His atavistic, or evolutionary, model of cancer supports the metabolic theory.
