Eat To Starve Cancer & Disease - TED Talk by Dr William Li

Who is Dr William Li?

In February 2010, Dr. William Li, the head of the Angiogenesis Foundation, presented a TED talk and discussed anti-angiogenesis therapy as a new way of treating cancer and other diseases.

What is Angiogenesis?

Angiogenesis is described by Dr Li as the vessels of life, but also the vessels of death.


It is the process our bodies use to grow and maintain blood vessels.


In ordinary circumstances, blood vessels are supporters of life, delivering oxygen and vital nutrients to all of our organs. But when abnormal blood vessels grow, they can nourish microscopic cancers. 

Why Does Angiogenesis Matter?

Dr Li explains that the body’s ability to balance angiogenesis prevents blood vessels from feeding cancers, and this turns out to be one of our most important defence mechanisms against cancer.


In fact, if you block angiogenesis and prevent blood vessels from ever reaching cancer cells, tumors simply can’t grow up.


Dr Li's extensive research has uncovered a plethora of delicious foods (and beverages) that are naturally anti-angiogenic: foods that can block blood vessel growth and, subsequently, inhibit cancerous cells from ever developing into cancer, even in those for whom cancers run in the family.


Time to whisk up a bowl of Matcha green tea, sit back and absorb Dr Li's wealth of information on how to eat to starve cancer.
