Today on Chris Beat Cancer we interview Dr. Valter Longo who we’ve last interviewed two and a half years ago. He has long been an expert on fasting for health benefits. He’s here today to tell us about how the Fasting Mimicking Diet can help people who are going through Chemo treatments for Breast Cancer. A new study shows that patients who used fasting had a five times better effect from chemo than the group who used medicine only.
- Valter Longo PhD is the author of a book he calls, “The Longevity Diet”.
- Not only did the fasting group do better than the control group but they responded five times better to the chemo.
- We interview Dr. Longo today to ask him all the new things he’s gathered in the last two years about fasting for health.
“Breast cancer patients who did a four-day Fasting Mimicking Diet around each chemo cycle had the same side effects as the control group doing chemo and taking a drug to reduce side effects.”
