Dr. William Li, is a renowned doctor, scientist, and angiogenesis expert. His groundbreaking work has impacted more than 70 diseases – including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. Dr Li’s wildly popular TED Talk “Can we eat to starve cancer” has garnered more than 11 million views. I’ve been a fan of Dr Li since I first saw his TED talk in 2010.
Dr. Li has held faculty appointments at Harvard and Tufts University and founded Eat to Beat Cancer, which is a community of 60,000+ people who are passionate about using diet to fight cancer.
Angiogenesis is the process by which tumors form new blood vessels to grow, but there are anti-angiogenic compounds in food that block this process!
And those were many of the same foods I ate every day to help my body heal.
Coincidence? I think not.
Please enjoy my interview with Dr. Li as he shares his amazing deep knowledge of anti-cancer nutrition science with you and the power of anti-angiogenic foods!
