Hypoxia, nutrient deficiency rapidly rewires cells for cancer metabolism

One of the earliest observations of Otto Warburg when he studied cancer was that anything that interferes with oxygen supply to the cell effectively caused the cell to become “cancerous”. In other words, he opined that cancer was essentially an adaptation to a lack of oxygen, not a mutant gory monstrosity as the medical industry … Read more Hypoxia, nutrient deficiency rapidly rewires cells for cancer metabolism

Increased fatty acid synthesis (FAS) is simply a sign of oxygen deficiency / low metabolism

Just a quick post on a study that provides insight as to how increased fatty acid oxidation (FAO) can “paradoxically” result in increased FAS as well, thus leading to a vicious cycle most commonly seen in diabetes and cancer. One of my recent posts discussed a much more recent study that demonstrated the same effect … Read more Increased fatty acid synthesis (FAS) is simply a sign of oxygen deficiency / low metabolism
