TED Talk with William Li: Can we eat to starve cancer?

Have you ever heard of TED Talks?

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a nonprofit, started in 1984, that is devoted to “spreading ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world.”

If you have never watched a TED talk video…..watch this one.  If you have watched them before but not this one from back in 2010….take 20 minutes and watch it.  Go to www.ted.com/playlists and find other inspiring, informative, and entertaining videos.  There are some great videos related to health, cancer, and diet, which are near and dear to my current situation and life.

In this TED talk, William Li discussses a new way to think about trreating cancer and many other diseases.  He will educate you on angiogenesis and how it effects the body and how eating cancer-fighting foods, causeing anti-angiogenesis and cutting of the supply lines to cancer can “beat cancer at its own game.”

Make sure you watch the whole 20 minute video….the best part starts at about minute 11.  I’m enjoying my healthy fruits, veggies, and spices even more today knowing that I am doing what I can to prevent this awful disease from taking over my body again.

  1. I watched this Ted talk the other day and it was very encouraging. I thought the chart that he shows with teas was interesting. I have been drinking Sencha tea, but his chart showed that Earl Grey is even better as far as anti-angiogenesis. Kristen, do you drink green tea? If so, have you found a good source for it? And what type do you drink?

    • I do drink green tea. I actually get my tea made up by a local herbalist and it is a combination of green tea, pau d arco, red clover, yerba mate, orange peel, cleavers, passion flw., sassafrass, cinnamon and cat’s claw. It is called a green purification tea because she is not allowed to call it the anti-cancer tea 🙂 but that is what it is.

  2. TED Talks have significantly impacted my life, especially with matters pertaining to psychology and nutrition. I will have to check out this video tonight once I have so quiet time
