by Benjamin Bikman
In this book, Dr. Benjamin Bikman reveals the groundbreaking evidence linking many major diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, hypertension, weight gain, fatty liver, dementia, low testosterone, menstrual irregularities and infertility, and more, to a common root cause—insulin resistance—and shares an easy, effective plan to reverse and prevent it.

Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine
by Robert Lustig
"Protect the liver, and feed the gut"
Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric neuroendocrinologist who has long been on the cutting edge of medicine and science, challenges our current healthcare paradigm which has gone off the rails under the influence of Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government.
Metabolical weaves the interconnected strands of nutrition, health/disease, medicine, environment, and society into a completely new fabric by proving on a scientific basis a series of iconoclastic revelations, among them:
Medicine for chronic disease treats symptoms, not the disease itself
You can diagnose your own biochemical profile
Chronic diseases are not "druggable," but they are "foodable"
Processed food isn’t just toxic, it’s addictive
The war between vegan and keto is a false war - the combatants are on the same side
Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government are on the other side
The Cancer Code: A Revolutionary New Understanding of a Medical Mystery
by Jason Fung
Our understanding of cancer is slowly undergoing a revolution, allowing for the development of more effective treatments. In The Cancer Code, Dr. Jason Fung offers a revolutionary new understanding of this invasive, often fatal disease - what it is, how it manifests, and why it is so challenging to treat. In this rousing narrative, Dr. Fung identifies the medical community’s many missteps in cancer research - in particular, its focus on genetics, or what he terms the “seed” of cancer, at the expense of examining the “soil”, or the conditions under which cancer flourishes. Dr. Fung - whose groundbreaking work in the treatment of obesity and diabetes has won him international acclaim - suggests that the primary disease pathway of cancer is caused by the dysregulation of insulin.
Dr. Fung provides a new paradigm for dealing with cancer, with recommendations for what we can do to create a hostile soil for this dangerous seed. One such strategy is intermittent fasting, which reduces blood glucose, lowering insulin levels. Another, eliminating intake of insulin-stimulating foods, such as sugar and refined carbohydrates.
