B.rad Rebroadcast: Becoming Cancer-Proof with Dr. Cate Shanahan

Today’s hard-hitting episode, a rebroadcast of a show with my friend and leading world expert on ancestral living Dr. Cate Shanahan, will have you reconsidering the efficacy and necessity of many conventional cancer treatments, especially when you hear Dr. Cate’s explanation of what she would do if she received a cancer diagnosis tomorrow (and the answer will probably surprise you!).

Referencing the work of Dr. Thomas Seyfried, Dr. Cate explains in this episode that cancer is actually a metabolic disease, rather than a genetic disease. This implies that instead of aggressive chemo and radiation treatments designed to attack cancer at the genetic level, dietary modification could be the most effective strategy. This aligns with the Warburg Effect principle, which suggests cancer cells feed preferentially on glucose over regular cells. The idea is that starving cancer cells of glucose with fasting and ketogenic eating patterns makes it possible to shrink tumors and heal. To put it simply, metabolic diseases are most effectively treated through metabolic treatments— there is another avenue you can take to prevent and/or minimize your cancer risk, as Dr. Cate explains during this show.



There is another avenue to explore when you get a cancer diagnosis. [01:46]

Cancer is a metabolic disease rather than a genetic disease. [03:46]

The Warburg Effect observes that cancer cells feed preferentially on glucose. [08:46]

What is Dr. Cate’s new job that brought her to Florida? She left the hospital job because her main interest is keeping people healthy.  [10:47]

The current system is not keeping people healthy. It boils down to the primary care doctor. [18:32]

There is a new method of primary care which can be a more personal relationship with the patient and save money.  [23:33]

False positives can be deadly. There are many different ways to look at what cancer is. [24:45]

There was much good research in the 1930’s and 1940’s learning about cancer and much of that has been forgotten. [32:46]

If Brad got a cancer diagnosis today, the first thing she would suggest he do, would be

Go over the diet to see if he were doing something wrong and watch a video by Dr. Seyfried. [36:32]

Are all cancers the same? They are all downstream from metabolism. [43:12]

Doctors who are studying cancers have varied opinions on the frequency of testing. [48:39]

People are so confused. Who do you listen to? [50:09]

The four pillars of human nutrition are fresh foods, fermented foods, meat on the bone, and organ meats. [52:05]

Other than diet, we still must look at daily movement and good sleep habits. The vegetable oils promote cancer. [56:47]

Canola oil is molecularly unstable and when you have too much of it in your diet, it destabilizes the DNA in your body. [01:00:02]
Would it be undisputed that a dietary modification leading to increased HDL and reduced triglycerides is a positive? What do we learn from our blood chemistry?  [01:09:00]





  • "You could have a hard drive that has a glitch, but if you have a really good operating system, you’d never know it."
  • "If you assume cancer is a death sentence, you will over diagnose and over treat it."
  • "30 to 40% of the average person’s daily calories come from what I have to call “non-food” sources of carbs and fat, and those things promote cancer."
