Convenient result from a cancer study

Published May 13, 2020

USC researchers have found that a “fast­ing-mim­ic­k­ing” diet, com­bined with dos­es of vit­a­min C, has a “dra­mat­ic effect” on can­cer cells: It kills them all.

“We have tak­en two treat­ments that are stud­ied exten­sive­ly as inter­ven­tions to delay aging — a fast­ing-mim­ic­k­ing diet and vit­a­min C — and com­bined them as a pow­er­ful treat­ment for cancer.”

Wow! Amazing! But wait just a moment.

First of all, the research was done on mice, it was done in vit­ro, and it only affect­ed cer­tain can­cers … albeit the most dan­ger­ous kind.

But here’s the kicker:

The senior author “is the founder of and has an own­er­ship inter­est in L‑Nutra; the company’s food prod­ucts are used in stud­ies of the fast­ing-mim­ic­k­ing diet.”

And: “USC has an own­er­ship inter­est in L‑Nutra and the poten­tial to receive roy­al­ty pay­ments from L‑Nutra.”

So yeah, you need a pret­ty big grain of salt for this one.
