For over 100 years, scientists have believed that cancer is a hereditary disease passed down through families. But maybe cancer isn't genetic after all?

What if, instead of scientists focusing on a flawed paradigm, they discovered that cancer is actually a result of defective metabolism from mitochondrial dysfunction? This would not only change the widespread understanding of this disease but other diseases as well. In addition, it would also give readers a way to achieve optimal health.

In this revolutionary guide, Dr. Joseph Mercola explains how the vast majority of diseases are caused by impaired metabolic function.

He then explains what is really derailing your metabolism: mitochondrial damage and dysfunction. There are thousands of mitochondria in nearly every cell of your body, and they generate around 90 percent of the energy you need for basic bodily functions. When a high number of these become damaged, it's impossible to maintain good health.

Contrary to popular belief, you can take control of your health by fuelling your body with the proper nutrients. A ketogenic diet, for example, is low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats—an ideal combination for optimizing biochemical pathways and preventing disease. Furthermore, a ketogenic diet has many other benefits such as boosting brainpower, increasing energy levels, aiding weight loss efforts, etc.

In this book, you will learn how your body works on a cellular level in rational terms. You will finally understand what type of food benefits it the most.

Looking to start a keto diet? This helpful guide will tell you everything you need to know in order to succeed, from sticking with the plan to eating healthy.
