Pioneering Dietary Method for Natural Cancer Treatment Featured in a new eBook

CHEYENNE, Wyo., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ketogenic-Diet-Resource.com – Standard cancer treatments are expensive and cause debilitating side effects, so a revolutionary method of natural, non-toxic cancer treatment is being welcomed by patients all over the world. This safe and inexpensive therapy utilizes a high fat, low carbohydrate ketogenic diet to fight cancer by starving it. A new eBook titled "Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet" details how it works. The eBook, available at Ketogenic-Diet-Resource.com, provides cancer patients with tools and information necessary to successfully implement this dietary therapy which can be used alone, or in conjunction with chemotherapy and radiation treatments to support and protect patient health.

Research from as far back as the 1920s shows that most cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar to thrive. They prefer sugar even when oxygen is available for normal cellular respiration, a phenomenon known as the Warburg Effect. When blood glucose levels are low, normal cells use fat products called ketones for fuel, but cancer cells cannot metabolize ketones and this makes them vulnerable to dietary therapy.  Ketogenic diets sharply lower blood glucose while increasing ketone levels, a metabolic state which effectively starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells.

"Sugar addiction is the Achilles heel of cancer cells," says Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, a ketogenic researcher at the University of South Florida. Along with Dr. D'Agostino, Dr. Thomas Seyfried of Boston College, Dr. Colin Champ at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute and Dr. Eugene Fine of Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York are at the forefront of current research on ketogenic diets and cancer. The eBook is based in part on their research and as such, it offers the most up-to-date information about how and why the diet works.

Written by Ellen Davis to help cancer patients with practical implementation of the diet, this eBook offers comprehensive research evidence, advice on implementation and monitoring of progress, appropriate targets for blood glucose and ketone levels, and other important information. The first edition has sold in over 40 countries, and it's now available in an updated edition which provides insights from the newest research and simplified guidelines for successful implementation.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
